Two months ago I randomly got sick - feeling like I'm going to throw up. This is 24/7, and I haven't had a single minute of relief for the past two months. This combined with emetophobia - the irrational fear of vomiting - means that it's been an absolute nightmare.
And that's just the worst of it. It's come with a world of other symptoms like stress, anxiety, nightmares, sweating, diarrhea.
I've been to the doctor several times - he's prescribed me medication for gastritis, anxiety, nexium, vitamin D... nothing's worked. I've had blood tests taken and they came back clean.
They've put in a referral to see a gastroenterologist but they tell me I might be waiting up for FIVE MONTHS - and that's not even guaranteeing a diagnosis.
Needless to say, this has made my life practically unlivable - I can't go anywhere, do anything fun, focus on movies or games... and I don't know if I'll ever get better.
Should I just keep waiting and hoping? See somebody again? Ask at the hospital? Arranging transportation anywhere is a pain but I'm in a real bad place right now and I don't feel like I could 'stomach' five more months of this.
