I get nausea for a few months (where I can have episodes which can last from 30 seconds to 3 hours) and then for a few months nothing happens at all - this has been happening for the past 10 years.
However since around November time I have had nausea almost everyday. It is now exuberated when I am away from home and in crowds, especially when I am on my own. I think I have created anxiety around this - I didn't feel this way before. At times in December it got so bad, I was calling in sick for work… It also gets worse when I hear about people being sick. My job involves travelling a lot (by train) and recently I have started looking for a new job closer to home, so I don't have to travel on the train. If I am away from home I avoid eating all day, just so if I feel sick, I won't actually be sick. But my appetite is normal and I will eat reasonably well at home (though sometimes I get spells of nausea at home too).
I have seen the Doctor in 2008 about the nausea and barium meals and blood tests didn't show anything. I have also tried a variety of medication to help nausea that doesn't work either. I have kept food diaries, tried to correlate events in my life (stress/periods etc.) but nothing seems evident. So most recently, the doctor has diagnosed me with anxiety.
I don't know why this has suddenly gotten this bad.
I have several other symptoms but I am not sure whether they might be related in anyway at all:
* Headaches behind the ear
* Sometimes I get incontinence other times I am constipated
* Very slight short term memory loss (not sure whether this is just me being more silly recently!)
* Recently I find myself becoming whiney and clingy to my family
I just feel like I'm a nut-job!!!! Any ideas?
