about a month ago i was in the carribean. and the second week i was there i was feeling some nausea and i lost my appetite. so i was taken to a doctor and she says its a virus going around . and she then gave me meds. the meds seem to work with the nausea ,but i had no appetite and it was difficult for me to swallow. about a couple days after i took the meds i notice i was restless and i was nervous and i had tingling feeling in my spine . i couldnt stay in one spot . the person who i was staying with looked up one of the meds i was taking and one of the side affects was restlessness. so i came off that and the restlessness left. but i for some reason continue to worry for no reason. about a week later i traveled to new york and i got a little better with my nausea,after i went to emergency room and they say everything is ok with the stomach flu but i never realized the apathy or lack of interest. when the nausea got better . i then started to notice the emotional problems. i had no motivation and i couldnt experience interest in things i enjoyed. about a week after that. all of my emotions came back but i had new interest . i was a new person. things that would of made me mad before didnt anymore. then i realize that i have depersonilization. after a couple of weeks. i notice i get nervous for no reason. sometimes up to 5 times a day. everything seems hazy for some reason. its like i have panick attacks. i wake up for the past couple mornings and i feel nervous for no reason. its like my chest has butterflies in it. any idea? or recommendations?

the med that the doctor gave me was for nausea and vomiting. i dont remember the name. but i know it starts with "ch"

Based on your comments in our posting, I do not believe that the Occupational Health & Safety Forum is the best place for your questions.

I recommend that you try your posting in Family Practice or Undiagnosed Symptoms and make an appointment to see your primary care provider.

Best of luck,
