Ive been feeling extremely nauseous and dizzy for the last

This answer was rated:

Hi there. Ive been feeling extremely nauseous and dizzy for the last 3-4 months.
I tend to throw up a lot and its worrying my family who think its an eating disorder but I know it isn't. I cant seem to hold down food and am shaky and hot most of the time. It feels like my head is full of smoke or stuffed with someone. It only feels better when I put my head down.
I have been extremely tired for a while too, even though I sleep fine. I have day time tiredness which results in naps.
Getting a GP appt is almost impossible given my timetable for work and education at the same time.
Im on ecitalopram for 8 months but feel like this isnt not the cause either.

Thanks for this question Jen
