Question: Vomiting, nausea, and shaking

 mkencar - Thu Jan 03, 2008 7:44 pm

I've been feeling pretty bad. My whole body is in a lot of pain.
I have really bad headaches that are accompanied by nausea.
I have a pain in my chest, stomach and back. It's not a soreness but a sharp pain.
When I feel nauseated and try to vomit, if I dry heave, my chest and stomach hurt very badly.
This has been going on for a month. Some of my symptoms have changed but I feel like I'm getting worse. I've developed a fever and have suffered black outs.
I'm going to the doctors in the morning but I'm really frightened.

User avatar Hi Mkencar,

Seeing a doctor is very important. There are several things that could be causing this including some viral infections like the flu or even meningitis. Since your symptoms are getting worse, not better, you should be seen to see if there are any treatments needed.

Best wishes.
