Hi, I am a 16 year old female.
For the past six months, I have had:

Weakness
Dizziness
Nausea in general (before eating/drinking, after eating/drinking, without eating/drinking)
Disorientation
Difficulty concentrating
Loss of appetite
Confusion
Difficulty concentrating
Ringing in ears
Difficulty sleeping, in general (difficulty falling asleep, difficulty waking up, difficulty staying asleep, don't feel rested after more than nine hours of sleep)
Extreme tiredness
Fainting, to an extent (more like my legs give out, and this is rare. I often FEEL like it will happen, however)
Memory trouble
Sensitivity to light and heat
Short attention span coupled with inability to follow conversation
Difficulty remembering words or saying them (as in, I'll know what they are but I can't physically say them)

I will have days where I feel mostly fine. However, on most days, I generally start out feeling 'well-ish' and degenerate from there. Some days, I cannot get out of bed because I feel too dizzy and tired.

I am seeing the doctor tomorrow, however, opinions are welcome :)

  • It could be many different things.. too many different things for me to feel comfortable to start making suggestions. Your doctor should do some blood tests and rule out common things... if he cant find out what is wrong by these.. Post back and I will suggest some other possibilities which are more specialised areas.
