Strange symptoms

Ever since September last year I keep getting these times were I've got an upset belly, general nausea and trouble eating. Also feeling weak and really don't like being too hot. It only lasts for about a week and then I'm fine. The last time this happened was mid-January and I thought it might be the last time, but I've just spend this last week unwell again with the same symptoms, just starting to feel a little better today. Does anyone have any idea what this could be?

It most likely will be nothing serious if there is a few months in between & then lasts a week , do you feel you may have been going through an anxious time more than usual when this happens ?

Maybe you could have a word with your doctor & just let them check you over & reassure you if you have not already x


So far from January to now is the longest time without it happening again, that's why I thought it had stopped. From Sept to Jan it happened every month, sometimes twice a month. I do want to see the doctor but unfortunately, because of anxiety, it's such a big deal and a huge stress on me to go see him. Yes I have been going through a more anxious time than before, I'm attempting to push through and have been pushing harder than normal lately.


It could be anxiety related as you have said you have been feeling more anxious than usual you keep a dairy so you can see if when this happens it is more when you are feeling more anxious you may see a pattern

It is a big deal also for me to go to the doctors , it is like planning some kind of big mission that seems like mission impossible when I am but somehow I push myself & make it there & it is such a relief after when I have peace of mind , so I understand it been a big thing for you but also worrying & feeling anxious over these symptoms is to which could keep making you anxious without your doctor telling you everything is fine , so maybe ask yourself could you just push yourself that little bit hard as it maybe , tell yourself you only have to do this the once & then imagine when the doctor explains what is happening you will have peace of mind which can be worth the anxiety it puts us through to get out & go to see them :-) x
