I have been on and off ill since the begining of the year. I must point out I have suffered from chronic insomnia for the last 8 months sleeping 2-3 hours if I am lucky per night but this has got a bit better in the last 2 months or so.
Anyway... so far this year I have had Sciatica, cystitis, Central Serous Retinopathy, my periods have shortened, lack of concentration most of which I put down to lack of sleep, I still do not know what causes my insomnia.
I woke up 3 days ago with severe abdominal pain.. on standing and walking it subsided, after eating breakfast I suddenly had stabbing pains in my lower abdomen and then diarrhea followed... for the whole day I was nauseous and couldn't eat. I also feel a tight sensation in my throat and chest like I am going to suffocate and my left arm feels numb. I have no appetite and anything I do eat doesn't stay in long, I also pain in my hip joints, I am cold to touch but sweaty and have a feeling like I am not in my body..?! I've tried some over the counter diarrhea tablets and paracetamol but nothing is working.
I feel like hypochondriac going to my doctor yet again but I am so sick of being sick... does anyone have an idea what may be causing any of these symptoms as I have this nagging underlying feeling that there is just something not right but my doctor is missing something..?
Thank you for any help
