hello, for quite a few years now i have got really bad headaches, i thought they were mingrans,(cant spell) but my parents say they are not. sometimes, if i haven't eaten for a day or slept much, i feel really sick,then faint,and my vision goes for a bit then slowly comes back but really fuzzy,then i puke. also after sitting down, when i stand up i have to stand still for a bit coz my sight goes blurry and it takes like 10-20seconds to go back to normal, and my head thumps,like someone is hitting me on the head with a hammer or something,it happens everytime i stand up, i hate it. also just some days i feel really sick for no reason.
whats going on? :S

You've posted about this before : did you ever see a doctor as suggested? There's really nothing we can do for you, and you REALLY need to see a doctor if you're this sick, darling.

Also may i add. I get the standing up thing. My doctor told me to take a longer period of time to get up. You need to sit up slowly then slowly stand up then it shouldn't be as bad.

Hun, you need to go with these symptoms, point-blank. Also, if you're still planning to have a baby, how do you plan to get prenatal care with a doctor phobia? You can't skip that.

You have to get over it somehow, for your health. Can a parent go with you? Your boyfriend?

Based on your last post Lauren linked to, I have to tell you that I think you need to just think about your worries about seeing a doctor.

If (and these are so rare, so I really doubt that's what's going on, but you mentioned it was your concern) worrying about a brain tumor without getting checked out feels LESS scary than just being seen to a checkup, you have to realize that this just doesn't make sense. And that your fear of seeing the doctor is likely doing you a lot more harm -- even just in terms of stress and how you are feeling -- than going to see someone could ever dream of doing.

But really, given your post history, at this point with these worries, please know there is nothing else we can do for you on this. The ball is in your court: you can either do what would be sensible and see a doctor, or just worry some more and feel lousy. But other than telling you to get seen by some kind of health provider, there is nothing else we can do.
