I am at my wits end. Have been feeling ''unwell'' for 7-8 months now. Symptoms are: weight loss (4-5kg), paleness, stomach upsets (which I was told are IBS and have improved with wheat and lactose rid from diet), aches in my forehead and between eyes, sore and tight neck, extreme fatigue, depressive episodes, irritability, worse than normal period pain, dizziness, light sensitivity, sore tired eyes, panic attacks. I now have an ear infection (which I upruptly woke up with 24 hours ago with no prior symptoms) and have caught just about every single cold/flu/stomach bug around in the past 6-7 months. I worry there is something extremely wrong with me, everyone around me seems to think I am making it up and need to just eat more - which further irritates me.
I don't know whether to drag myself into a hospital and demand every single test under the sun? Please, what is my next step here? What could all of this be caused by?
