My partners health has been declining for a few months now - started just before Christmas and although we've made a few trips to our doctors and he's had a few blood tests, they've not found anything.
He's gone down at least 2 Jean sizes unintentionally in a short space of time and is noticeably thinner than his previously healthy self.
He says he has no appetite and is almost constantly nauseous so he isn't eating properly. On the rare occasion he does eat properly, he ends up vomiting.
He struggles going to the bathroom and has stomach aches when he needs to go.
When he stands he gets dizzy, often enough to lose his balance and fall over.
He thinks it's a mixture of him no longer eating meat, a reduction in his antidepressants and no longer smoking canabis (which he has for a few years up until the past couple of weeks)
- because the quitting smoking is so recent I don't believe that to be the reason, although it obviously did help him to eat but I believe it was more working to help his appetite through an existing problem.
He stopped eating meat around Christmas and I suspect help has a b12 deficiency so have been buying him vitamin supplements to try helping this.
The medication he is taking is amitriptyline (previously 100mg, now only 50mg)
He sometimes has very sharp sudden pains in the left side of his head that are strong enough to be debilitating.
I'm very worried as he's still losing weight rapidly, he won't eat and is just so down and miserable, I feel like I'm losing him and there's nothing I can do. Not even the very recent birth of our twin boys is helping to being him out of this and we all need him to be back to his previously happy, healthy self.
I'm so worried this is something very serious and no doctor is picking up on it.
Please if anyone has any insight or advice, please comment. I'm so lost and desperate to help him.
