I have been getting sick since March 2015 Every


Q: I have been getting sick since March 2015. Every 3 weeks, i will get dizziness for a few days, followed by watery diarrhea a day or so later, then extreme nausea and stomachache. I have had blood work done, with the first results coming back with elevated white blood cells. I had a CT scan that had results of lymphs nodes in my stomach being inflammed. Stool sample had no results of anything abnormal. My dr believes I am getting all of these symptoms from anxiety, so i am being treated for that. However, i dont understand why this occurs every 3 weeks. I had dizzness and diarrhea last week and since then cannot eat without getting nausea. Zofran doesn't even touch the nausea. Any help would be appreciated!

Symptoms:  Nausea diarrhea dizziness stomachache

A:   Hello,
Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com

I understand your concern.
You have some significant findings in elevated WBC's as well as inflamed lymph nodes in the abdomen.
I will advise you to consult a medical gastroenterologist who can help you further.
This is not due to anxiety.

Hope this was helpful,
