For over a year I've suffered from a strange condition (it might be gastroparesis but doctors and I are confused about it) which symptoms are nausea, and stomach aches but no vomiting.
It started when I had a stomach bug and threw up a few times, it wasn't even too severe, but after that i never fully recovered? I feel nauseous after I eat anything, the severity depending on what I've eaten. It's usually worse after I eat my dinner, possibly because its a bigger meal, and after eating chocolate (or sweets, but I tend to not really eat sweets anyway.)
But the problem isn't just feeling sick, its that i have a baadd fear of vomiting again. Because of this, I have developed symptoms similar to depersonalisation/derealisation (hope i spelt them right lol, and i haven't had a formal diagnosis; i'm going to start counselling in a few days though) and anxiety.
I'm afraid that the condition may be chronic, but now I'm not sure if it is even a separate condition or if its just my anxiety causing the symptoms to persist. Has anyone else had this problem or something similar? and how would I know if this is the case or not?
