I've been sick for twelve days now.  I'm getting really scared.  I've been to three doctors and they've all said it's (probably)just a stomach bug combined with my anxiety.  But it's been almost two weeks and I can't eat solid food, any sleep I get is filled with nightmares and I'm taking 5mg of valium a day to stop the shakes.  The pain in my stomach is unbelievable.  I missed three days of work last week and Have to be at work today to pay rent.  Im going to go into emergency when I finish my shift, but I'm terrified something is seriously wrong.  I know I'm probably being an obsessive nut, but I feel terrible.  I need some support! I've got 5 hours and ten minutes until I can leave. Help!

No, the fever has gone now and I'm just left with intense stomach cramping, shakiness and insomnia.  I just don't know what it could be? eyes

yeah  I'm OK !!!! I'm fine!! I went to Emergency and they were nice, took blood (five attempts to get a line in ech) and all the rest and I'm perfectly healthy. Yay! I was so sure I was a goner.....silly panic.  Only problem is I have severe IBS and it's not about to go away in a hurry.  BUT I am Ok so I that's all I need for now.  That and some pain killers.  Thanks for the support guys...I couldn't have made it through yesterday alone.

Hi, Meg!
So glad you're basically okay! Get some ginger for your tummy and maybe some peppermint tea sweetened with honey!
