Not a great day today.

Felt ill right from the off, mostly coughing but also feeling nauseous, tired and headache-y. I tried a Lemsip around midday, but by 2pm I'd had it and departed for home. On the commute back I started to feel nauseous, and up chucked into my mouth while in the outside lane of the M3, so then had to swallow it again. It took every ounce of mental strength to stop more coming, and was just a horrible horrible journey. Why I didn't just pull onto the hard shoulder and puke my guts up I don't know.

I felt sufficiently crap that I went straight to bed when I got home, and felt a bit better 2-3 hours later.

I don't know what the fuck I do at this point, having seen the GP and two consultants before who can't figure out what this is. Anyway, I'll go and see the GP tomorrow.

that sounds awful, I think pulling over would have been a better option.
Go back to your GP.
Which is pretty much the same situation I am in when I see mine tomorrow.

I was conflicted about stopping on the hard shoulder vs. what I thought was my (ultimately failed) ability to stop the vom.

Been to GP, and will write that up in a few minutes.

Could it be stress related?

I'd never say never, but it doesn't feel right to me - hard to say though whether I'm just living with some constant overpowering stress, perhaps even of my own making. My gut feel (no pun intended) is an allergy or immune system issue (in terms of cause), albeit I feel the latter is more likely.

I've been to the GP, so I'll write up what she said.
