Hello everyone, my name is Ayoub, 18 years old, I'm a Moroccan citizen ..
I think I have some health issues concerning my metabolism and I'd like to know whats going on; I'll say everything in close details:

I'm very underweight for a 18 years old: I weight 53 kg (we're on the metric system); And I've been forcing myself to eat, with no apparent results... Oh yeah .. No appetite (Even with appetite stimulating medication)

I have dry skin, and I recently started suffering from hair loss, which is very disturbing ..

My energy levels aren't stable .. I always feel tired and the only way to be on my normal "awareness state" is to have a caffeine intake (Coffee, Energy drinks); I'd like to mention that this was happening to me before I started drinking Coffee or Energy drinks on a daily basis, so It is not caffeine dependency.

I have a throat problem, I always spit phlegm (Sorry for grossing you out), I ALWAYS feel my throat full of something, even without eating anything ..

I have concentration and memory impairment issues ... Sometimes I don't know what to say in the middle of a conversation .. And thats really awkward.

I am very sensitive to cold ..

I have digestion problems, and irritated bowel movement syndrome ..

I recently went to a Dietitian, she has put me on Cortisone pills for 3 months but haven't given any results so far ..

I'm desperate for a treatment ..

Thanks in advance guys .. :o
