I am a 18 year old girl, not sexually active and haven't been to a doctor since 2. For the past year I have been feeling weak, fatigued, constantly tired but can never sleep and a migraine often. My joints ache too. I have constant lower back pain, pelvic, hip pain on the left, abdominal discomfort. My stomach seems to have swollen and I am collecting a lot of fat suddenly around my mid-section when before I carried it mainly on my hips, butt and upper thighs but these have gotten smaller. I find breathing hard especially when laying down. I get an aching/weak/numbing feeling in my left arm and leg, again especially when I lay down. My hair has become thin which is a change because it's always been thick and coarse. It need to clear my throat all the time as it feels like i have a lot of phlegm there. My scalp feels really heavy and sensitive. Hair used to be dry but is now greasy with dandruff. I sweat more than average underarm and palms and the smell is very strong! My facial skin has become greasy and very greyish-white looking with HUGE BAGS. I have had sudden weight loss every where but my stomach. Lately my body has started producing a lot of hair. Also my appetite has gone down. I hardly eat more than one meal a day. I have ZERO percent energy. Being an ex-dancer I had high energy before. I feel very anxious and my self esteem has become really low. I am feeling low a lot of the time because of this. Im thinking I could have hormone imbalance too? I don't eat a lot of vegetables and fruit, not because I won't but becau se it makes me heave then I end up not eating nothing. I have recently started taking women vitamins, folic acid vitamins and fersamal. PLEASE help me get back to my old self and get my energy back! I can not take this any longer, its been 2 years but has worsened over the past year. I have no bowel problems and no medical conditions as i know.

I'm so scared of going to a doctor as I've never been. I pray he/she doesn't just send me away with me having so many 'problems' for them all at once. What should I do. When it comes to talking to them i know my minds going to go completely blank with my concentration and what not being so low, i would end up just leaving things out just to stop confusing them =/. Would they accept me writing it down on paper and then going into more detail when they ask?

I have so many more symptoms but it's too much to write. The symptoms I'm most concerned about are what I've written.
