Hello doctor,

I have always had problems with my mental health and self-harm, but I never went to an actual professional. I left an appointment, but it is next month because I decided to go to my hometown, thinking it would make me feel better to be around people. But now I feel really sad, and I have this tightness in my chest, I have no appetite, and I feel nauseous the whole time. What might it be?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Since you have mentioned that you had problems regarding your mental health, though you did not clarify or shared any related symptoms that what kind of questions you experience. Also, self-harm is an extreme reaction of emotions that resulted due to either depressive state, anger, loss of control, or pleasure. In any case, it is not considered normal. Over some time, it might give you relaxation, but the underlying issues have left unexplored.

Those emotions may come back as depressive state or behavioral disturbances which you are currently facing. Sometimes one is unable to understand his or her emotional experiences and needs help. So in your case, if nothing is so severe in your history than it might be hormonal issues which need to be addressed after proper assessment by a psychologist.
