Hi Ive just found this site, Ive been ill for 9 months now. In the begining my symptoms were feeling run down with a cold and either incredible hunger or nausea- but never actually vomitted. Decongestant cleared the nausea but the hunger has now been constant for 6 months. Along with the hunger in my stomach, I feel light headed and have legs like jelly- this doesnt even stop for 5 minutes after ive eaten something, its just constant.
My Doc gave me two Amoxicilan and then Keflex. Then she took blood and said the only odd thing was my liver levels were slightly high ( I dont drink). I got a liver scan but it was fine. Since then I have been waiting to hear from my gp, who said "Dont call us, we'll call you", and 3 months later I had to phone her to find out she hadnt done anything!?!?

Does anyone know what this could be? I starved myself for 3 days 4 times in the past 7 months and I dont have diahorrea. The only other thing I should mention is that for about 6 months my throat has been mildly enflamed.

It reminds me of when I had Oral Thrush last year, (caused by the very same antibiotics I have been given this time), back then I had constant hunger and a sore throat, but it was sorer than now and there are no white spots on my throat.

Im going absolutely mad, my GP doesnt care and Im still unwell :(
