Hi. Over the past few months I've been feeling tired all the time, which is very unusual for me- I'm usually an energetic morning person and I do a lot of sport which I am still doing. The doctor did a blood test and everything was normal except my iron was on the low side so I've been on iron tablets for over two months but I don't feel any better. The doctor said there wasn't much else she could do. Also some days I feel very sick after eating, more regularly at breakfast time, but also at other meal times. Usually I'm not actually sick, but sometimes I am. The days I am sick it always seems to be days when we are going out for meals or days out, so I'm worried about being ill on these days- maybe this makes it worse? If I go too long without eating I get terrible stomach cramps, which are then made worse when I do eat, and also this then causes the feeling sick and it becomes a viscious circle. On occasion I get a bit of diarrhea, but only once, not repeatedly. Is all this happening because I'm worried about being ill when I'm out, or is there actually a problem? I can go for weeks being fine apart from the tiredness, then I get bad again. Thanks for any comments/ ideas. I am female and 18 years old.
