Since I can remember I've had trouble gaining weight.

I'm 21, 5ft 11, I weigh 56kgs.

In Feb i had my nose operated on, had a septoplasty, and my tonsils removed to help sleep better.

Now of a night I get a fever when i lay down some nights, i have problems with sweating (day or night), muscle pain, severe fatigue, headaches, sensitivity to light, etc.

I work at a bank, I goto work tired, come home exhausted.

My doctor seems to be dismissing it as nothing, the last blood test I had showed nothing (9 months ago), I'm having another this week.

If it comes back fine, what should i do? I cant put on weight for the life of me.
