We know a 13 year old boy who complained of being SO tired for about a month. We figured it was normal because he is growing and changing. Then he got petechiae. Then he got blood in his urine. He is so tired, and pale looking. Just today he is black under his eyes. The doctors have run several blood tests with no answers... I am really worried. The bllod in his urine is at the max level. Something is very wrong. He looks seriously ill. Any idea what could be happening?? Thank you...
