PLEASE READ I AM SIXTEEN YEARS OLD IT IS LONG BUT I NEED HELP ON WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME. It would mean alot to me:) Please Help:)


About five years ago when I was in grade six I began to develop joint pains. This was something new and I had been extremely active when this started happening. I was playing sports almost every day and I was the athlete of the year for my school.

The joint pains bothered me but they weren't enough to stop me from playing, they just made me very sore after exercising. The joint pains started to get worse the next year and soon I had to cut down on playing sports. I would miss practices because my knees hurt. I went to physical therapy but it did not help. I was also becoming very inflexible.

Soon after I started becoming increasingly tired all the time. It was extremely difficult to get to school on time because I would be too tired to get up in the morning and felt very unrested.

I began to develop headaches and concentration problems at school. Previous to this time, I was a straight A student who was passionate about school. I loved doing homework and when we had testing, my teachers recommended that I skip a grade!! I was at the top of my class every year.

As soon as I started being tired and having headaches and concentration problems, my marks began to drop. My teachers noticed a change in me and informed my parents. This was in grade 8. Unfortunately at the time my parents were splitting up so this made everyone think I was depressed and that what was causing everything.

As the year went on I got worse and worse regarding my health issues. I was playing rep basketball but I hardly ever participated in practices because of the joint pains and fatigue.

In the summer of grade 8 I had a horrible time. I could no longer play sports for a long period of time because of the joint pains and fatigue. I started to develop sleeping problems. I noticed that I had to urinate alot in the night and i would wake up constantly.

My concentration problems were so bad that I couldn't figure out what I wanted to say. My memory was shot and I didn't know why. I also had TONS of muscle spasms! Mostly on my thighs, legs and buttox.

My grade 9 year started and I was doing very poorly in school. I was late everyday and forgot about homework all the time. I couldn't focus in class and would not be able to remember what we did when I got home.

My eyes were becoming very sensitive to light and at home I would get watery burning eyes. I moved out of my room because I noticed it was mostly happening in my room, washroom and the basement. I had no idea what was causing this though.

My parents took me to a Neurologist to try to find out the cause of my headaches. He examined me and everything was normal so he gave me migraine medication and anti-inflammatories to see if that helped.

I was put on an anti-depressant because my parents thought I was depressed again and that was causing all the issues.

The headache medication given by the Neurologist did not help. It only numbed the headache a tiny bit which was enough to keep me going to school.

I was missing school because of the headaches and that combined with the anti-depressant allowed me to feel good enough to go to school even though my health was in very poor condition.

I started getting blurred vision and could not focus what so ever on anything. I had to quit all sports. I was getting very weak and everyday I felt as tired as the night before. My bottoms of my feet were very sore especially in the morning when i got up!!!!! We saw a chiropractor and naturopath but none of it solved my problems.

We were then referred to Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto to see another Neurologist. The Neurologist realized that my health problems were more joint pains than headaches. The joint pains came first so they decided to test me for Rheumotological diseases and everything they could think of including Lupus and Rheumotoid Arthritis.

It all came back negative and they didn't know what to do. They gave me another anti-inflammatory that I had already taken and sent me home!

I did have tests that were abnormal such as low B-12, high ferritin and liver abnormalities but they could not explain it.

I was so sad and i looked everywhere on the internet to see if I could find something that the doctors didn't try. I discovered Lyme Disease and I thought that this was it.

I sought after a Lyme disease doctor after my family doctor tested me and it came back negative. I knew all the controversy behind the testing so that did not discourage me and I looked for an expert dealing with Lyme.

I found a doctor in Toronto who was a family doctor that had experience dealing with Lyme Disease. He tested me and it came back negative again. He gave me Amoxicillan anyways to see how I would react to it.

I started taking the Amoxicillan and after a few days I began to feel 100 times worse! The joint pains were so bad that I could barely walk. This feeling lasted for a few weeks and then in the last week I started to feel less joint pain.

We went back to the doctor and he said that this could mean that I have Lyme Disease and he gave me a second trial. In the second trial I got worse again but never got better.

He then put me on Azithromycin and Plaquenil. This made me feel worse than better for a few days. During this time that I felt different I was at my grandparent's house. We went back to my father's home and I began to go back to my normal amount of pain.

I was still getting the burning and watery eyes ONLY at my father's house. I thought this may be due to a mold problem in our home because there was a history of water leaks in our home in the past.

We got a mold sample taken from our basement and it came back positive for two species of mold (Aspergillus and Penicillium). My father said he will get the carpet changed sometime but didn't really take it seriously.


I was put on a second trial of Azithromycin with Plaquenil and I did not improve. We went back to the doctor and he basically gave up on me. He said that he tried everything he could think of and didn't know what was wrong with me.

I had an "indeterminate" bartonella test and asked him what this meant because I already had very sore soles especially in the morning which is a common symptom of Bartonella!

He said that some tests read it negative or indeterminate and he had already given me the Bartonella treatment anyways.

I asked why I got worse on antibiotic treatment and if that means anything else than Lyme and he said it could mean alot of things????? WHAT?

I am now very depressed and not going to school because I am too sick. I don't see my friends because I am too tired and weak to have any fun anymore.

My life sucks now and all my parents say is they want me to talk to someone about it. I have already done that and it is a complete waste of time because therapists have no idea what is happening to me.

It's not depression, it is physical pain. I don't know what to do anymore. I think that the reason I got worse but not better on the antibiotics is because there is a mold problem in my house? Can mold keep me from beating Lyme disease if I have it or do I have something entirely different that nobody has thought of yet?

PLEASE HELP ME I AM ONLY SIXTEEN AND MY PARENTS HAVE NO CLUE WHAT TO DO

Can mold keep me from beating Lyme disease if I have it or do I have something entirely different that nobody has thought of yet? PLEASE HELP ME I AM ONLY SIXTEEN AND MY PARENTS HAVE NO CLUE WHAT TO DO If you have a toxic mold problem in your house, then YES it would make your symptoms worse with antibiotics! Washing the carpet is completely worthless for toxic mold issues...please do some research on this and try to get a more in depth mold test done. If you had Lyme I am fairly sure you would receive some amount of relief with antibiotics...tho you may be allergic to amoxicillin - did they ever try another antibiotic like doxycycline? Did your doc specifically treat Lyme? You may have needed IV antibiotics for effective treatment. I still don't think this can be completely ruled out. How were you treated for your B12 deficiency? Most docs treat this completely inadequately - post your thread on the B12 misdiagnosis post and Freddd will hopefully help you. You may need upwards of 10-15,000mcg of methyl B12 daily, depending on the severity of your deficiency. Have you been tested for vit D def? This is epidemic, and many docs don't test or treat this effectively. You are living in an area that is prone to this issue and D def can cause fibromyalgia symptoms. Please make sure you have been tested and know what your level is. Again, if it is under 20 you may need megadoses of D for several months. Please, please look for another alternative practitioner to help with your problems. I am an acupuncturist and think this form of medicine would help you. At the very least it should help with your chronic pain. How is your digestion? How are your bowel movements? Do you have any urination issues? Do you get sinusitis or upper respiratory infections? Do you have any allergies, seasonal or otherwise? Best wishesDOM

  • It is your medicine that you have taken that is causing all your pain. Antidepressants cause ALL these symptoms and over 100 more. You are not going crazy. I was n benzo which also messes with your central nervous system just like antidepressants, both should be banned. I found a yahoo forum on these drugs, people that have all been through what you are going through, just like me. I have been medicine free for almost 2 years and I'm only 70% better, but I am a lot better than a year ago. You are not going crazy, doctor's are killing you, they almost killed me. You can be off these drugs but the damage they caused can take up to 3 years, for your central nervous systems to heal.I can help you with this.PLEASE READ I AM SIXTEEN YEARS OLD IT IS LONG BUT I NEED HELP ON WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME.

I am not allergic to amoxicillan and I was not treated with doxycyline but I was also treated with azithromycin combined with plaquenil. The doctor treated me specifically for lyme disease. He will not perscribe IV antibiotics unless there is a positive lyme test and so far the only thing close to that is an indeterminate bartonella test. I took B12 supplements on my own and a naturopath gave me a shot of B12 but nothing helped. My B12 level now shows up very high on blood tests though. Im not sure if I have been tested for Vitamin D defficiancy but I probably have or at least if I have not than it doesn't fit my case because I have never heard the doctors mention it before. Sorry but my parents do not believe in alternative medicine because we have already tried a naturopath and chiropractor and neither one solved the problem. It was also very expensive so I don't think that is an option at this point. No offense to you of course:) I have to take flaxseed to be able to go to the washroom and I have to urinate frequently. I don't get upper respiratory infections or sinusitis, and I don't have any diagnosed allergies. I am sensitive to certain foods but I don't have celiac disease or any food allergies. Thanks for your reply:)

I have been on Prozac, Zoloft, Celexa and muscle relaxants but they didn't help anything at all. If I told my doctor this I think they would send me home right away because they don't believe in this at all... Thank you for the reply I hope you are doing well now :)

  • What medicines, even over the counter did you take before all these symptoms started? Find the yahoo forum on benzo's, just so that you canbetter equip yourself. ANY pills that mess with your central nervous system are the devil's twin. Even tylenol pm. If you were completelydrug free when you started to notice these symptoms when I think you said you were 8 years old, please list what symptoms you had. Are you positive you were not given any medicine for anything when you were 8?All the medicines that you listed also cause the symptoms you described. Please, google the yahoo forum on benzo's.

  • My eyes were becoming very sensitive to light and at home I would get watery burning eyes. I moved out of my room because I noticed it was mostly happening in my room, washroom and the basement. I had no idea what was causing this though.Read more at http://forums.wrongdiagnosis.com/showthread.php?t=70920&ktrack=kcplink Im with what the other said and the moment i read that part i was thinking you have an issue with molds. The only way to get away from mold issues is unfortunately actually move, nothing you can do in your house will help this kind of issue. Also I think you have an issue called Chronic fatigue syndrome or Chronic fatigue immunity dysfunction syndrome... this causes very lyme like symptoms including sensitivity to light etc. CFS is more often found in females but in children it appears equally in both sexes. Ones with CFS often get bad reactions to medicines.. liver abnormalities (high liver enzymes showing up) can often appear in CFS. Ones with CFS very very often have coexisting fibromyalgia.. and it sounds as if you have that issue too. i suggest you to look up Cort Johnsons CFS forums, they are full of info and you will be able to get some emotional support in dealing with this serious very real illness too. (there are some on the forums who have cured their CFS by complete mold avoidance.. i suggest maybe to have a chat to some of those.. i realise you are probably stuck where you are living now so cant currently excape the mold issue, but at least you can come up with some kind of plan for when you are old enough to leave home and know hopefully your case of CFS may be able to be fixed).best luckps.. find yourself a good specialist who specialises in CFS

  • I am no Doctor, but it seems to me you need to have your thyroid levels checked, or even possibly tested for diabetes? Both cause forgetfulness, confusion, concentration issues, muscle and joint pain and extreme fatigue. A thyroid problem can easily be misdiagnosed as ADD/ADHD and even depression. Good luck and best wishes.
