I'm a 14 year old female teen, and for the past 5 or 6 months I've been having some pretty weird stuff happening to me and no doctors know what it is. my toes swell, and turned a dark purple color. they stayed that way for about 4 months, then it subsided some, although they're still swollen. I have chest pain in my left and right chest, and my heart beat will suddenly become very loud and quick, and i become very aware of it. There is aching pain all over my body during an episode. I get dizzy, and feel like i'm about to pass out, although i haven't actually blacked out yet. also, when all of this is happening, the veins in my hands become very prominent and dark. I have headaches, and my vision will blur to the point where i go from having great vision to dreadful. I have difficultly falling asleep and staying asleep at least one or two nights a week, and during the day i feel weak and fatigued. I've noticed that the symptoms usually come on or become more prominent when i'm ovulating and/or on my period. my periods are always on time and i don't have any spotting or anything, but they're very heavy 99% of the time. We've been to many different doctors, and none of them have any idea what this is. i'm desperate for any sort of suggestions.
