Hello. Thank you for coming to JustAnswer with your question, and welcome.
You may actually be having some side effects of the medication you are taking (Lamictal). "Dyspepsia" is a fairly common side effect, which would include your stomach symptoms. Tremors is also a side effect, as well as nausea and fatigue. These are listed as the "less serious" side effects of Lamictal.

It would be a good idea to discuss these symptoms with your prescribing physician. If you are suffering side effects of the medication, the symptoms may get worse as time goes along.
I spent quite a few years taking care of elderly people, who are more sensitive to medications than younger adults. So I tend to look at medications first. And since you do not have other symptoms that would suggest infection----the medication is a likely suspect.
Also, reading your past questions, I understand that you started taking this medication fairly recently.
And, please do not stop taking it, or change the dose before talking to your physician.
Thank you. And best wishes to you.
