Continuous nausea, dizziness, exhaustion, flipping near heart, no improvement with anti-sickness tabs. Help?

suffering with non-stop nausea , weird dizzy/fuzzy feeling in head, exhausted, very pale skin, very dark purple under eyes, flipping feeling at top of stomach/near heart . Had thyroid test (negative). Had lump develop in breast and breast painful and grown large (been checked - all ok). Also, developed thrush in mouth, but now clear. Been suffering for 5 weeks, unable to work. Better if do nothing but lie down, once sit up or walk around all symptoms come back - sometimes terrible and am bed ridden and not with it at all, other times im able to get around but just not with it and feeling of dread and sick in stomach. Also, been on anti sickness tabs for 2 weeks (no use) and lapranazole for acid reflux - no improvement.

Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

Nausea, vertigo (sensation of movement) can most commonly be associated with (1) benign paroxysmal positional vertigo- this is a disease of the inner ear.Your doctor will test for this by performing certain maneuvers.Treatment involves 2 maneuvers which are done at the office and then at home (2) meniere's disease (3) vestibular neuritis- dizziness related to an infection of a nerve called the vestibular nerve, if there are hearing symtoms then you would be said to have labyrinthitis. In these conditions the dizziness tends to be constant in the initial stage, then later it occurs as a result of sudden movement.Treatment is mostly sympathomatic-medication to treat the nausea and vestibular suppressants.If your doctor believes it is occuring as a result of an ear infection or herpetic infection then appropiate medication is given.It can take up to three weeks to recover.If it continues beyond 2 to 3 months then special tests may need to be done.
Since you have been ill for 5 weeks you doctor may consider doing blood tests (to rule out other causes of nausea) and tests to check the inner ear and the nerves, to make sure they are working properly

I hope this is helpful,
