recently i had pains in my testes which were said to be nothing. Had a tiny lump, doctors ignored it. Now they're solid but the pain has gone.

Pain spread to my abdomen (very little) thats gone and now i'm feeling tired and totally fatigued. I fall asleep in school during my free periods and could go to sleep as soon as i get home.

I've took a day off, had plenty of sleep but i'm even more tired. I'm taking vitamin tablets which have no effect. I'm eating less. But now i'm starting to develop a cough which causes pain inside my left chest (heart and back). The back is probably nothing as i landed on it pretty hard recently.

I frequently get minor pain on my sides. And my stool type changes whenever i go. No blood but its not normal. I had that sent away but heard nothing. Also when i lay on my left to go to sleep a small lump is present on my abdominals on the left. But is invisible when normal.

My mum thinks its just a winter flu but it isn't as strong as a flue. but its getting me down none the less. i've been like this for a few weeks and only seen the doctors twice. I have exams coming up and trying to revise is absolute ***l. everythings just piling up, i have no energy, feel out of control and have no idea what to do. The last couple of months is the first time i've felt like this. It all started from the testes problem so im sure its related. Any ideas. Please.

I'll try see a doctor again but its always the same,...."you're only 17 so i doubt its anything wrong with you, just leave it a few weeks and come back if you have any more problems".
