Hi there, my name is Zeena and I am a 21 year old student. For the past year I have been experience a number of symptoms which I will give you some background information on. Last summer I went travelling in Thailand and one of the days I had a very violent vomiting bug, which left me feeling sick for a good few days. I do not eat meat but ate some salads over there and tried to avoid ice in drinks as much as possible but was still not 100%. When I came home from the holiday I started feeling like I had no energy at all. I wake up multiple times during the night and it is a real struggle to get out of bed in the morning. My body and muscles are weak and I feel quite faint a lot. This is greatly impacting on college and work. I have taken lots of supplements but none have worked. I get aches and pains in my body and my memory is quite clouded, I'm very forgetful. I get dizzy when I stand up sometimes. Lately the symptoms have developed into ibs and I cant seem to eat certain things. I get cravings for sugar and salty things and seem to be hungry all the time. I get abdominal pains and cramps. I feel sick and bloated after every meal and have diarrhoea at some point every day. I get really bad gas which makes me uncomfortable to be around my boyfriend. I feel worse everyday. I used to rock climb and go to the gym but now I'm not able to do that. I also never feel satisfied after meals and am hungry quite quick afterwards. These symptoms are really taking away from my daily life and making me feel very down. I am experiencing anxiety as well. My doctor is very unhelpful with this situation. I have done bloods which show that my b12 levels are normal but what are the chances I am not absorbing it properly? Is it possible that I could have a parasite which is taking my nutrients? I appreciate any help as I feel like I am not living my life to the fullest and I am only 21. I currently have asthma and am also on the birth control pill.
