I sent the wrong answer to you ( it was intended to another person)- sorry about that

with diarrhea and shortness of breath- you have some GI bug; how are your sugars? when did this start?

are you getting worse, the same, or better?

Customer: replied 3 days ago.
Ive had this whole think ever since i had that Anxiety Attack but the Diarrhea and Nausea started recently this month i would say and i would say its getting worse because of those reasons
Customer: replied 3 days ago.
I havent checked my sugar for a while but tomorrow i will go buy some testing strips and needles for my diabetes machine then check it

is the diarrhea worsening due to the anxiety?

Customer: replied 3 days ago.
Yes i think so cause ever since i started being anxious about this whole lockdown and flights being cancelled i started having nausea and Diarrhea

everyone is a bit "off" with this virus crisis-

if anxiety is causing the nausea and diarrhea- we have to chill you out a bit-

watch your diet, caffeine, dairy as that can promote diarrhea- At first I thought your metformin was causing the diarrhea- but you have been on this for years

Customer: replied 3 days ago.
Yeah doc that has been wrecking my brain also this virus thing Okay Doctor ill watch out on the diet then Doc maybe i might be Lactose intolerant

make some diet changes, maybe immodium over the counter if the diarrhea is bad-

just calm as you can- we will all get through this mess
