I am a 23 year old female with several "unrelated" conditions, and the older I get the more it seems like I'm being misdiagnosed. I've had asthma and eczema since I was a toddler, as well as severe allergies including tree nuts and shellfish. As a child I had a lot of issues with constipation, but as I've gotten older (15-present) it seems to have gone the other way and become more of an issue with diarrhea. Around 16 I started having grand-mal seizures and was diagnosed with epilepsy. The seizures stopped around 19 until two months ago when I had two back-to-back. I have not had any since then. I have a history of anorexia and have been on and off psychiatric meds for depression/anxiety for the past ten years. Other symptoms I experience are intensely dry skin on-and-off, hives, anemia, mood swings for no reason, weak tooth enamel, and some weird circulatory issues (hands and feet are usually cold, feet fall REALLY asleep when they fall asleep). I don't really grow armpit hair and my period is on and off even though I've been on a low-hormone birth control pill since I was 14. I'm in pretty good shape, possibly slightly thinner than I am at my healthiest weight (I am 5'6 and currently 117 lbs). I've been to so many doctors over such a long period of time and I refuse to believe my symptoms are unrelated. Does anyone know of anything that ties all of my problems together? Please help, if there's anything that could improve my health or make sense of it I think I'd be a much happier person. Thanks for reading.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
