Depression hit me unexpected, I've lost my appetite and now have a shortness of breath

Posted , 1 user is following.

I am a 19 year old male uni student living with 5 others in a flat.

I opened up to one of the flatmates about the amount of physical and emotional abuse ive been through, and after that moment I have been feeling really sad and changed the way I feel dramatically, I normally get very hungry at very specific times but now I just dont and sometimes forget to eat or make too much food, even after eating i feel like its just trying to get back out and can feel the food for hours in my stomach, but now my torso is chaking every few minutes, and it scares the living out of me, I cant concentrate anymore as i have this deep feeling that I never had before, everytime i try to express my self i just end up crying every times i try, this is not normal and it hit me so suddenly, and the worst feeling of all is the feeling of having a short breath which becomes worse after eating.

Can anyone please help me? do I need a doctor?

    How are you feeling now Dray?  I get very similar feelings.  Uncomfortable feeling in chest after eating like an indigestion ie trapped win in the chest.  I've been to the doctors with this complaint and have been diagnosed with ibs.  The good news is when I'm settled mentally and not stressed the symptoms go but as soon as I feel unsettled the uncomfortable feeling return.
