I have been under severe stress

Customer Question

I have been under severe stress days now which has progressively reduced. I have not been able to eat properly. every time i eat i instantly feel like throwing up. I feel sick nearly all the time though. I just made some plain rice and managed to finish the bowl but feel sick now. past 10 days i have had a couple of bites but had to stop eating because of how sick i feel. Is this stress related even though my stress has now subsided or could this be something else? Im very worried about the small amount im managing to eat. Thank you

No
We can not diagnose this .
And you can not call it stress.
This could be anything from a stomach ulcer, to thyroid disease.
Only an exam and lab testing is going to give a correct diagnosis.
Can it all be anxiety? Yes, if severe.
Can we gurantee that? Not at all.
I would go to urgent care.
OK, so that is an initial answer….

Yes, A & E.
Given the severity of your symptoms, and the fact that this is new, I would not wait.

Relist: Answer quality.
I have spoken to NHS 111 who have advised that this is not urgent i also feel that for £36 the level of the answer is inadequate

I am another expert here.

I see you have opted out the other expert

I am sorry you are having bad nausea

excessive anxiety can cause the stomach to produce more stomach acid

you might benefit from trying over the counter acid neutralizers like malox or mylanta to help decrease stomach acid.

medications like alka seltzer could help settle your stomach

you might benefit from stronger stomach acid blocking agents like prilosec or zantac.

have you tried these stomach acid agents to help? they are over the counter and can be purchased at your local drug store.
