User :   can you help me with something?
Doctor :   sure
User :   nice to meet you. i have a problem eating lately. everytime i eat something i get like pressure in my head and a headache. and i've had constipation for more than a few weeks now
Doctor :   how can i help you ?
User :   it's been very frustrating because everytime i eat i get panic attacks and this pressure in my head and neck that make me feel like i might pass out. but i never do. i get really shaky
Doctor :   may i know your age and gender?
User :   im 24 and male
User :   diabetes runs in my family but ive had that checked and its fine
Doctor :   ok
User :   any ideas. ive lost alot of wieght
User :   and i get really hungry
Doctor :   well i think its your anxiety that worry you
User :   i get that. i figured it might be anxiety but what can i do? i can be afraid to eat.
Doctor :   you need to get a physical examination done , and get your blood and thyroid level tested
Doctor :   hello
User :   im here. i just had to pay for some time
Doctor :   no problem
User :   my mother is a nurse and she says it might be my thyroid, other wise it's stress.
Doctor :   ok now lets discuss all your problems one by one
User :   ok.
Doctor :   since how long you have been having this problem ?
User :   around two months ago, it started after i ate some chinese food, i vomited and had sever anxiety, since then i've had the hardest time eating
Doctor :   and also tell me about your weight loss?
User :   i've lost about 35 pounds. i weighed 173 qnd now im down to 135
Doctor :   in how much time ?
User :   about the time since i've had the eating problems
User :   around the two months. i know alot had to do with my bird like eating habits though
Doctor :   well i think what triggered this response was the fact you falling sick after the eating episode
User :   i dont feel too bad when i eat fruit or decaffinated coffee. sometimes even drinking too much water from a fountain make me have a panic attack
User :   so you're saying it's more likely mental than physical?
Doctor :   ok, well i am concerned about your rapid weight loss
Doctor :   yes, your symptoms suggest more a psychological cause
User :   yea. the weight loss is what concerns me too. i rather enjoyed my weight. im about 5"9' and i weight 135 now. that's a bit low
User :   is there anything you would suggest after having a thyroid test done?
Doctor :   yes after the test i would like you to also get a complete blood count done
User :   what is the blood count for?
Doctor :   and also for your anxiety there are medications but i cant prescribe you over an online consultation
Doctor :   for that you need to see a doctor
User :   would it help you if i told you i have this strange intolerance to too much heat?
Doctor :   blood count would tell us if your body is coping with the weight loss
User :   like if i get in front of an oven or am out in the heat i get really drowsy and my symptoms get more intesne
Doctor :   intolerance to heat and weight loss do point to a thyroid problem
Doctor :   including fatigue
User :   yea. i am tired way more than i should be.
Doctor :   a thyroid test is must for you
Doctor :   dont worry, we have medications that will make you well in no time
User :   that sounds about right. are there anythings i can do until then?
Doctor :   the key now is to find the right cause so that you can be treated accordingly
User :   i love cooking and i hat avoiding food in fear of this crapy feeling
Doctor :   i can understand. well do set up an appointment as soon as you can and soon you will be on the road to recovery
Doctor :   just have a positive outlook in lofe
Doctor :   life**
User :   thank you so much doctor. i will definitely get ahold of the community health center here. an i will. its more comforting to hear it from someone who knows their stuff
Doctor :   Your most welcome
Doctor :   glad i was able to help you
User :   me too. now i can end this two months of hell haha
Doctor :   dont worry everything will turn out just fine
Doctor :   take care
