As the topic says, I have a lot going on. Approx. the day before my school started (this past sunday)I started to feel a bit funny in the tummy region. I didn't think much of it, as I tend to feel a bit sick before something new. BUT, this time it isn't going away. I've eaten very little of anything the past few days because my stomach is so bad. I literally THINK of food and the queasiness gets worse. And yes, I mean gets worse as in it is constantly there. I went out to lunch with some VERY new people (I'm at a new school, and loving it, but this was a first impressions lunch) and I couldn't eat. I had 2 glasses of water and a few cups of tea, plus some clear broth, but no real food. I've been forcing down lightly buttered toast in the mornings, and eating very plain foods like noodles and such when I can get them down, but I'm really worried this time.

I also have a sore throat, with developed on Wednesday morning (I woke up and went OW) but it also doesn't feel like normal. It goes AWAY when I talk, but comes back when I'm not. I'm drinking orange juice and taking Vitamin C supplements, but it doesn't seem to be going away either.

And lastly, my period. It started on Wed. evening, so I'm wondering if it has anything to do with these lovely problems I've been having. I've felt sick before when I've been on my period, but NEVER to this degree or extent. Before it may have been an hour or two where I just felt nauseous, but never longer than that.

So, any advice/help/clue what is going on?

Thank you!!!

Unfortunately, we can't really diagnose stuff over the internet. However, prolonged nausea is definately something you should pay your doctor a visit over. It could be related to your period or to your anxiety over a new school, sure, but it's best to make sure it's not something more serious.

My only problem is that my dad doesn't think I need to see a doctor... we're 90k in debt to an insurance company for my mom's medical stuff, (she died late last year) and he doesn't want to take me. He will, if I push and prod, eventually. And my other problem is that my doctor likes to dismiss everything I say that I'm concerned about in an off-hand, "I know better, you're just being paranoid." way that really makes me mad. I asked for a gyno exam and she said that I didn't need one as I'm not 18 or sexually active (both true), even though I've had my period since I was 11 and it is still a bit irregular. I asked for a thyroid test because I fit all (and I mean ALL) of the symptoms for low thyroid, but she only did the very basic test instead of the specific one my father and I requested. So, I need help finding a GOOD doctor close to me, who'll actually listen.

FYI? In terms of your GYN care, you can get that yourself on a sliding scale at a clinic here in Seattle. So, there's no need to be going without that care, and you don't need your general doctor to give you that exam.

In terms of finding general care, and finding a good doctor for it, are you asking about working within your insurance plan? If so, your best bet is likely to call the information number for your policy and talk to them about these issues.
