i'm a 16 year old female and for as long as i can remember i've had problems with feeling weak, tired, and extremely unhealthy looking. i almost always feel extremely nauseous (could be caused from adderall tho) and can go days without eating. but even when i do eat regularly and everything, i still feel extremely weak. my legs get really tired from walking up the stairs. i get dizzy, can't do barely any physical movement because i get SO tired. i have almost constant headaches and stomach aches (i've been getting stomach aches for years now and have seen doctors who have blamed it on constipation and stress) when i sleep i can sleep literally for days on end. my heart always hurts and i'm always hyperventilating. i seriously feel my brain slowing down everyday & my short term memory is RIDICULOUSLY bad. everyday i look extremely pale, unhealthy and just flat out sick. WHATS WRONG WITH ME?!?!? oh and i should probably mention i have an alcohol addiction.

  • Sounds like firstly you need to seek help for the alcohol addiction and possibly go into rehab. Try speaking to your school counsellor.. unless you want to end up dying real young and stay unhealthy. your issues also sound like chronic fatigue immunity dysfunction syndrome.. this illness is serious and actually ones with this are usualy intollerant to alcohol so it will make you worst. http://wwcoco.com/cfids/bernesx.html If you do have this illness, that alcohol is doing you much greater harm. As the other said you may have an issue with B deficiency(ones with CFIDS are sometimes helped (not cured thou) by regular B12 injections)

That does sound liike CFIDS.. not getting enough sleep or looking after myself properly, used to make me have a fever too.http://forum.notcrazy.net/ would be a good forum for you to learn more about this
