I've had problems with fatigue and sleepyness since I was 13 or so. I used to have sleep apnea, so we always assumed that's what it was. I lost some weight and the sleep apnea is gone...but the fatigue and sleepiness never went away. When I turned 17, new things deveopled. Unsteady gait, bad coordination, tremors, memory loss, dizziness, weakness (especially on my right side), and muscle twitches. I went to a neurologist and MRIs were done...everything came out normal, so I did physical therapy to help with the weakness and coordination.
So anyway, I'm about to turn 18..and I've started having something else happening. I would (almost always at night) suddenly feel very feverish. Weak, exhausted, and hot. After 2 months of this, I finally bought a thermometer so I could see if I was actually running a fever. I noticed my temp is all over the place. It was 96.3 (I even double checked for accuracy)...then 15 minutes later, it was 98.4. I felt really, really weak and feverish when it was at 98.4....which makes no sense, because the normal temp is supposed to be 98.6...and mine never is. It's always low. But I don't feel cold.
I think I must have bad circulation or something. Whenever I stand up, I often feel faint. When I wake up in the morning, I'm white as a sheet. Super pale. It takes about half an hour or so for the color to come back to my face.
Does this sound like anything? I just want this stuff to go away! I'm going to college next year, and I can barely get by as it is.
