I'm a 32yo woman who is generally fit and well. i dont smoke, i no longer drink.
I have been having bouts of illness since april this year that have lasted up to 6 weeks and have come and gone.
The first time i was unwell in april 2019 i had nausea, diarroeha, pain in my left arm, dizziness and extreme fatigue, eventually i ended up in hospital however all tests including an ECG came back normal.
They said it was a virus.
I was then unwell again in May, July, September and October.
When i was unwell at the end of October, i thought i was going crazy, i couldnt move from the sofa, the room was spinning, the intense nausea was unbearable and i did not eat for 8 days resulting in a big loss in weight.
On my third trip to the doctor, my doctor told me i had vertigo and prescribed me antibiotics for an ear infection.
I took the course of antibiotics and felt great for approx 3 weeks.
Now, all the symptoms are returning again, intense nausea, dizziness, pain behind my eyes, heavy arms, i just feel absolutely awful.
I am finding it hard to believe that these bouts of feeling unwell are all unrelated.
I dont know if it is linked, but i mentioned to my doctor that coincidently since Feb 2019 my body can no longer tolerate Alcohol. If i have even a few sips of drink, i am bed ridden for 3-4 days. This has been a very sudden change as i had never had this before, so i have since may 2019 not touched an alcoholic drink. Im concerned that there is a bigger problem here and im worried that my doctor doesnt want to look further into this.
They dont do urine tests, blood tests, nothing, and i dont know what to do from here
Any advice or guidance would be so greatly appreciated.
