Customer Question

over many years, maybe as many as ten, I have suffered with a feeling of nausea, a feeling that I am going to be sick. In the event I am not sick, but the symptoms can last for a few hours or even days. With this sensation I can also get a feeling of light headedness, of lethargy, often sweating, but sometimes the chills. This feeling can strike without warning but is often associated with a new or different stress, maybe a meeting or trip or situation that is new to me. I am a seasoned (66 year old) former banker (now retired) so these situations are issues I've dealt with in the past without a second thought. I had prostate cancer four years ago the treatment given was lengthy radiotherapy course, although apparently successful, there is cause for concern just now as my PSA levels are increasing. The symptoms referred to above were present before my cancer diagnosis and have been subject to two endoscopies, three colonoscopies and various stool and blood tests without success. I thought the symptoms may have been caused by diet and possibly cheese and/or wine, although I would not say I was a heavy consumer of either. My GP recently sent me for a 24 hour urine test, which I believe was ok. He has asked me to see an Endocrinologist but I'm afraid I am unaware why. Can someone help please. Alan XXXXX
