Q: Hey,

I have been ill for over 6 months now, I have various symptoms so I put it in the general category. My problems started on my first big trip away from home by myself. I was flying from New Zealand to Germany, on the plane I started to get a very gassy stomach and my stomach was rumbling alot. during my connection at hongkong I went to the toilet and just passed gas and a very runny stool. I have had this problem for the last 6 months. some days its worst than before. But now I'm also getting other problems. The circulation in my arms isn't normal. And I get a tingling sensation, or sometimes I lose circulation when I normally wouldn't. I have also started getting migranes that affect my vision and pretty much force me to bed. I recently went on holiday to see my girlfriend and the problems subsided for about 2 weeks, even though my stool was still not normal. But on the plane flight there and back I suffered from a panic attack (hard to breath, arms tingling, feet tingling) I have nevered suffered from one before. So far I have had many tests, lots of bloodtests, urine, stool tests, ultrasounds on my stomach, MRI scan of my abdominal and all have come back normal. Do you have any idea, my doctor is trying to elimate the serious illnesses but he says it could be physcology.
