Patient :Hi, I am really fed up of all these symptoms I have been having with no real answer.
I am 18 years old, I have a history of depression and have been on 100mg sertraline for a about year. I had previously been on fluoxetine.
I have always had a very small bladder, I wake up around 3 times a night to go to the toilet, and whatever I drink seems to go straight through me. I was still wetting the bed up to the age of about 7. Not sure if this is relevant but will mention anyhow. I also have nightmares mosts nights.
I have had very light bleeding occasionally when passing stools for a few years. A few months ago the bleeding became heavier and there were some clots. My stools are mostly yellow, and I am either really constipated or experiencing diarrhea. After having tests I had a colonoscopy to rule out anything. Very slight inflammation was found but I was told this could be from the procedure. Biopsies were taken but I am waiting for results.
I have had a history of heavy drinking since I was young (around 15), and for about year would have around 2 bottles of wine every night. I have cut down on drinking and now try to drink one night a week.
A couple of days ago I came on my period and had really bad pain, this lasted the whole day even when taking pain killers. I was bleeding a lot and the blood was very dark, there were some big black clots, this made me distressed but it eventually calmed down so I didn't follow it up. I have never really experienced heavy periods so this is unusual for me.
My main problem at the moment is the sweating. I am dripping with sweat from even the smallest amount of walking/moving. I feel light headed and dizzy and get a headache always in the left side (I am not usually one to have headaches either). I cannot even go to the gym anymore because I cannot keep up and the sweating puts me down too. I cannot do the things I used to do as I am worried about the symptoms happening.
Any help would be amazing. Thank you
