I've been bouncing in and out of hospitals and doctor's offices my entire life, and I'm pretty desperate for help, so if anybody knows ANYTHING, please reply.

My symptoms:
abdominal bloating
occasional dizziness, nausea
random pains (feels like bruises, mainly on the arms)
fatigue like crazy

I also experience hives, headaches, and inflamed knees, but these may be allergic reactions.

When I was twelve, I had my right ovary removed, along with an orange-sized tumor/cyst that had been growing since I was five. The tissue was dead, so they couldn't tell exactly what it was. I'm also down an appendix. If this isn't enough, I suffer from a really mild form of cerebral palsy. I'm always sick with colds, flus, stomach bugs, and mono because my original infection keeps coming back.
Right now I have another cyst, which may or may not be attached to my left ovary.

Please help! I have to stay home because of all this, and it's starting to look like I may have to remove my left ovary and go into freaking menopause at eighteen just so I can go to college. Really, really not ready for hot flashes!
