Ok, here's the deal.
19 year old guy.
This has been happening for a year now.

Let's put it like this, half of a week I feel very bad, rest of it - good. It can also be that I feel bad 7 days in a row, 2 days feel normal, and then again I feel bad. The conclusion for this is that something is causing this and that it is irregular.

How can the "feeling very bad" thing be described?
I wake up in the morning, and feel tired...want to continue sleeping and if I get up and go to university, then all the time I'm kinda blurry...in a way that it is hard to concentrate, drive car...my head is like daft,dizzy (feels like the same, when one is getting better from a fever, but still has this daft head). So the daft head is the main symptom.

In addition, during those "bad feeling days" I urinate excessively...(~every hour, but it is not like that, that I wake up at night and urinate)....I don't feel like eating - very bad appetite(I eat, but only because I have to), then I have cold hands all the time, and overall feel tired... hard to breathe fully (hard to take full maximum breath).

I remember myself 2 years ago - it was nothing like this..woke up every morning - felt perfect - was able to study all day, etc. do whatever I want.

I do sports (during the days I feel good) and everything is fine, but the worst thing is that I'll never know when the next day of "feeling bad" will come, and I can have 7 good days in a row, and suddenly I'll wake up in the morning, and feel very bad (symptoms I described).

Of course, I have gone to my doctor, but the thing is, that when I feel good, I enjoy every second of my life, I feel really happy, and I try not to think of the possible "bad day" tomorrow, therefore I don't go to doctor.

I did full blood tests - quite okay, I have done also other tests, such as, stomach sonografia and they all didn't say anything bad.

I'm not taking ANY medication, only daily vitamins (Centrum and other before).

My life is kinda stressful, etc., BUT I believe that this is nothing to do with that, as it is irregular - it is not continuous - it starts,stops, and starts again.
I have tried to think of something specific I do that would cause it (eat, etc.), but NOTHING comes in my mind that would cause this..



What do you guys think?

I'm really looking forward to hear your opinion! :)
Thanks in advance!

  • In those few days precediing when you start to have bad days again.. are you doing more physically than you usually do?? or having extra stress in that time?? Maybe a diabetes test too would be a good idea if that wasnt done with the tests.

  • I don't do extra activities in those days preceding the "bad days"...Those "bad days" also start if I don't do sports at all...Yes, I also thought about diabetes because the symptoms really match, but my doctor ruled that option out kinda quickly... because if I would have Type 1 - i should be in coma, but the Type 2 diabetes usually is for people >30 ..Maybe my doctor is mistaking?Thanks!

  • Hi reinisb,Some quick questions to try to help you narrow this down:What part of the world do you live in?Do you have any silver/mercury fillings or do you eat sushi?Is there an inciting event? I.E. is there a timeframe where you can narrow down the onset of these symptoms and is there an event that precedes this onset?Do you have a history of antibiotic use?Cheers,AB

In summers it's around +25- +30 C, in winters it might be down to -20 C.I just called my dentist, and she checked my history, and it seem that I have quite a few silver fillings (3)! In addition, I eat sushi ~twice per month.I know when it started - January 2008, and in fact I was in Paris at that time and then flew to Milan - it was work. That work was kinda stressful, but I would not associate this "bad day" symtopm by stress, because it starts even if I don't have stress....About antibiotics - I have used them when I was little - usually when there was a big flu, etc. But I remember, that all the time, if possible, we tried to stick more natural things. (However, I used antibiotics in mid-2008 because I had diagnosed heliobacteries - eventually - they were gone).Looking forward!P.S. Another symptom I forgot to mention before - I have white tongue all the time - and it is impossible to brush that whiteness off.

  • Thanks for reply AliBaba199! P.S. Another symptom I forgot to mention before - I have white tongue all the time - and it is impossible to brush that whiteness off. That can be a quite important symptom. It can be a sign that you have issues with candida (thrush). This can cause all kinds of symptoms.
