Hi dear
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

I would like to have more details about how you are feeling.Do you get any fever ?Over how many months did you lose 10 pounds ? I advise you to visit your Physician and get examined for any underlying cause of these symptoms.I advise you to get a thyroid profile done.

You can post few other details as a comment to this post.

Take care.

Hello - Logged into my Aunt s account... she has been having severe nausea since December - lost 30+ pounds - weighs 90.1 pounds. Husband died in december... could be stress or unresolved issues. Bouts of lower back pain, leading to nausea, to dry heaves, to ER getting fluids and zofran iv. Weeks ok in between...now is almost constant nausea depending on what she has eaten. Anti depressant Paxil --- now changed to reme??? She has a bad metallic taste in her mouth... trying to insure she still eats but is difficult. Gastro tests all ok (no colonoscopy yet) Gall bladder, scans, no abdominal aortic anurism. Has Bladder recon from 2003. Gastro says NO nor allergies? How do they know??? I am ready to insist on allergy referal. What else? She cannot lose any more weight!
