Our expert says:
Seeing a psychiatrist sounds like a good idea, as would seeing a gastroenterologist ( gut speialist )- for anything complex, seeing the right specialist is much better than only seeing a GP. High anxiety can cause a degree of loose stools, but not really the sort of diarrhoea you're describing. I don't like iving antibiotics blind in such a case without the testing a Gastroenterologist would use, to see (a) if there is an infection ( there are many other possible causes of diarrhoea ) ; and (b) if so, to identify the organism so one can choose the RIGHT antibiotic.
Do try to eat as normally as you can - not eating would on its own make you feel nauseated, and if you take in so little food, there's nothing with which your guts could try to form normal stools. And drink plenty of fluids, as diarrhoea includes losing fluid which you need to make up ( and also usually losing electrolytes - chemicals lioke salt ).
