    Hi there. SO SORRY you feel so bad, but at least you know what it is and it will get better. I am also feeling very poorly now but feel worse because of being stuck at home on my own with no visitors.  So it gets lonely and boring too.  I hope you have some company to make it better. This may sound crass but try to think of it like this.

    Other people go to great lengths and spend a lot of money on losing weight and you have achieved it without trying, in the long run that part was a good thing.

    Im bad for trawling the internet to self diagnose and the symptoms I have strongly suggest stomach cancer, I am so worried right now, I feel so sick after eating, I vomit every morning when I get out of bed, and have bad indegestion everyday :-(

    Hi Alan feel you have two options

    Go back to doctor and insist on further investigation 

    or Try relaxation tapes which may help your sickness and anxiety

    Im not sure if anxiety can cause an over acidy stomach with nausia and weight loss, im at my witts end with it all, im trying not to over react

    I went back to the doctors and they are sending me for an endoscopy

    Im just wondering if its possible to lose this much weight in such short space of time and to have an acidy stomach that never goes away can anxiety cause all of this ?

    Thankyou for your response

      You'd be amazed at how anxiety can affect all aspect of health - But if you're concern insist the doctor looks into it and fast !

      Agree that anxiety cannot cause weight loss but maybe you went off your food and were eating less because of being anxious?  I do not think anxiety can cause acid stomach either, but if you are more relaxed you can make better decisions and be more able to cope emotionally.

    I havent been eating very well for four week now im eating about a quarter of my usual daily intake due to lack of appetite and nausea may be stress anxiety related but have noticed extreme gas in my stomacb aswell

    It did start after a barbecue but its been going on for 5 weeks now, no cramping or loose stool just weight loss, acid, nausia and vomiting

      That is why I said it sounds like food poisoning  maybe or it is the flora in the gut due to the food or drink that evening, either way it is not serious even if horrible and long lasting.

    Your doctor is fobbing you off. How do you feel now? Constant nausea is not necessarily serious, but it should not be dismissed as mere indigestion, you could for example, be suffering from a stomach ulcer or an inflamed stomach due to a stomach bacteria called h pylori.
