I know many people posts on here everyday for help. It stinks when something can't be figured out and all doctors do is make you look stupid. I really would appreciate some advice on what I should ask doctors to test for.
Ever since July 24, 2009 I have been experiencing many symptoms that doctor's can't figure out. I have symptoms of nausea everyday(mild to severe), fatigue, easy bruising, easy bleeding, nosebleeds, tiredness, lack of energy, mini red spots(Petechiae), bone/joint pain, weight loss, weakness, swelling, headaches, left side pain, and in the beginning lack of apettite. I have had basic blood work, bloodwork for (mono, liver disease, celiac, H-pylori), colonoscopy, upper gi, kidney ultrasound, and MRi of head. Recently, a doctor found a cyst on my left ovary that is large, but not concerned about it. Could this be the cause of my symptoms.
I have a pelvic ultrasound coming up and an allergy appointment. However, I feel my problem is not going to be be found through the tests.

I really need suggestions as to what to ask the doctors, because they seem to think it is all just going to have to live with. I need advice as to what to ask the doctors to test for. I know how this forum helps many people, and right now all I want is to have my life back on track. My mom thinks it is Leukemia due to the symptoms, but my white cells are not low enough. Anymore I am just living day by day, because these symptoms just get worse. These symptoms have made it hard to be successful in college, and do things I love to do.

Thank You

Thank YouHi, first i'm sorry for these things, i also was really sick for last four months and i had diagnosed about two weeks ago.. i had nausea really bad and i was vomiting too.. after all the tests i found out my problem is about my hormons... i think you should ask for hormonal tests, it's really important and unfortunately doctors usually think about hormons at the last moment..
