it seems that your body internal environment has been disturbed by the new medicines . it happens as many people do not tolerate some kind of medicines.

if the medicines prescribed by your precious doctor had suited your body system well and everything was in control, then you should go back to that doctor and start on those old medicines. any new doctor should stop experimenting on your body.
