    I know I'm unwell and I've been this way for the past week. I've lost my appetite almost completely, I eat just half of what I used to and still feel really really full..I can't sleep at night..I keep getting chest pains and every morning I wake up with terrible body ache as if I've just had a strenous workout the night before. Are these symptoms connected in any way?? I want to know for sure what I could have before I go to the GP.

    Ok, so when you see the GP, you can tell him/her that you spent a week being ill because you wanted to figure out what was wrong with you before you went to the GP to have it confirmed. You'll sound really clever then. Good thinking bro.

    Wat? Goin' to the doctor is one of those times when you have to throw daftness to the wind. I mean, at the doctor's, people have to admit wind problemz, piles :blush:, itchy nads and all sorts. Sometimes, you have to tell the doctor about wetting yourself when you laugh. Sometimes, you have to take off your trousers to be examined, and sometimes, when pulling them back up afterwards, you're so nervous that you drop them again and they slump around your ankles leaving you to bend awkwardly to reclaim them in from of the GP - and even then, he/she doesn't laugh or even care, really.

    You need to sort out your priorities!

    It can be embarrassing going to the Drs but believe me, they'll have seen/heard a lot worse.
    You need to put your mind at rest, and potentially get some advice/treatment for your symptoms. Only place for that is GP surgery.
