I am a sixteen year old girl and I'm not fat, nor skinny. I'm pretty healthy, (with the occasional splurge of chocolate) but these symptoms are causing havoc on my life.
In May of '07 I got an unknown virus that caused me to be extremely tired (so much so that I was incapacitated). It lasted about two weeks before I got better. Unfortunately, in August of '07 I got the symptoms back, but they were less extreme. While I was tired, I could still function normally.
However, since then I have had more symptoms including:
Fatigue (no matter how much sleep I get, I always wake up tired)
Headaches (have gotten steadily worse from when started in September '07. They are bad in the morning and at night, but get better during the day. They can be so bad that I can only clutch my head in pain)
Dizziness (I am constantly dizzy, and I can't turn my head fast, nor turn body without feeling like the world is spinning. Also, I've been having more dizzy spells that can last for an entire day)
I'm not sure if this is a symptom, but if I'm in a warm room for to long I need to drink a LOT of water or else I will start to black out.
Recently, I've had shortness of breath, where I have to take deep breaths or else I won't get enough oxygen and I'll start to black out.
I've had a CAT scan on my head before, but nothing turned up. These symptoms aren't really big, so it is hard to pinpoint what is causing this.
Thank you for any responses, and for your time reading this.
