Hi guys/gals.

Last six months I have been feeling very lightheaded and tired. Im a young teen male who has never been a good sleeper. I have achy joints and Im scared. These symptoms are also accompanied by oral thrush.

Do you know what this could be?

This is seriously starting to scare me...and I also have a cough which comes back every week or so for a day and then goes. My symptoms ease with exersize and I generaly feel more awake at night.

Please help.

Thanks.

Please help. Thanks.I would look at why you are not sleeping. Lack of sleep can cause you to be light headed, at one time I rarely slept due in part to Anxiety, I would only sleep 2 nights out of 7. I was constantly light headed and the lack of sleep ruined my immune system, we need sleep especially if you are young.Also if I do not sleep I get this funny dry cough and tickle, and achy muscles and joints.Exercise often helps as my Dr said it removes the lactic acid built up in the body which is normally removed during GOOD SLEEP.Find out WHY you are not sleeping and sort this out first and see if this helps, good luck,Ian
