Diarrhea, vomit when coughing. No hungry,hot flashes, losing weight. Have BP. Metformin for diabetes. Help?

I am getting really worried about my health. I am female, just turned 35. I DONT HAVE HEALTH CARE :( For the past two years I have had diarrhea most days. I eat healthy and take care of myself and rarely eat out. I throw up most mornings and sometimes randomly throughout the day. If I cough to hard.....I m running to the bathroom to vomit. (Had my tubes tied three years not pregnant) I am finding myself never hungry anymore and have to force myself to eat most days. I have lost over 40 pounds in the past year and am now loosing my hair. (WAY to much on a daily basis) I take vitamins everyday and have even tried drinking an Ensure daily just to get my needed vitamins. I feel tired all the time and often have what I call Hot Flashes . A year and a half ago I was diagnosed with high blood pressure. I went to the emergency room due to a allergic reaction to the blood pressure meds and was told I have diabetes... I am now not taking blood pressure meds and am taking Metformin for diabetes daily. I still have high blood pressure. I noticed three weeks ago my pee and poop both smell like burned rubber. It went away for about four days and is back. I have also noticed that no matter what I eat or drink...( Gatorade) comes out with in 20 min that exact color! I have tried no gluten diet.... the no lactose diet....the no meat diet....nothing is working. I went from a vibrant 5 foot 7 inch woman weighing about 170 to a weak feeling 130 pound tired and sick feeling woman. I shake for about 10 min when I wake up in the morning so much I cant write. And am ALWAYS puffy and swollen most days. PLEASE SOMEONE HELP.

Madam... you sure need help !! perhaps the one thought that comes first is the control of Bl sugar and is this, ( the diarrhoea ) the side effect of Metphormin ?
You need to get a composite care plan in place !
On this forum the help that I can give is guidance. Along with Diabetes and Hypertension u also have to get your thyroid function done. Diabetic loosing weight points to poor control of diabetes.

Something different from the above i would like to keep Irritable bowel syndrome as an alternative evaluation, secondary to the main diabetes and hypertension.

So, please get in touch with a local doctor and resolve your health issues. Atleast a HbA1C, urea , creatinene, and TSH reports would help in advising u further.

With best wishes
