Since coming back from a holiday in Greece I’ve been diagnosed with gastritis because I kept feeling like I was genuinely lying on a tennis ball when I lay on my stomach, as well as feeling constant motion sickness and sometimes having a burning or even sometimes stabbing pain in my abdomen. Prescribed Omeprazole and been taking for 2 weeks (told to take for 4 weeks come back). I still feel the ‘tennis ball’ and I still get the same sickness feeling! I’d have thought I’d start to see improvement by now?? I’ve changed my diet to smaller bland meals and no joy. I did 2 pregnancy tests despite being on the implant because I just don’t understand it! (Negative).. I feel sickest in the morning.
I’m now also worrying that I have early menopause!! I’m 27, my period is late and I get hot flashes, can’t sleep because I’m so hot and my period is really late. My periods have been weird for a few months- I’ve been bleeding a small amount every day for up to 3 weeks. I have no sex drive either and I feel anxious.
None of this is helped by the fact I’ve had anxiety in the past . I’m terrified every day that 1) my gastritis is something more sinister 2) I now won’t be able to have children
Sorry for the long post I’m basically miserable, constantly feeling sick and at the end of my tether. Thank you.
Ps I’m quite sure the motion sickness feeling is not due to anxiety as I’ve only become anxious since feeling so ill for a while
