The onset was gradual, over 2/3 years since started uni.
Other medical problems:

Hypothyroid - taking 50mcg thyroxine
Chronic Reflux - no treatment

I'm not on any other medication. I have been prescribed zantac, prepulsid
forte, aropax, duromine, valium-like drug starting with D i cant remember...
but each of these I took for max one month.

I think the symptoms are fairly constant, I havent noticed any variation by
month/season or other that I can think of. My doctor laughed it off a few
months ago, but now it seems to be getting worse hence the plea for help.
