it all started about a year and a half ago, the symptoms started like this and built up over this year.

these symptoms are in order, :

Weird purple lines on my knees, (a new one appeared on my arm this month for about a week then just vanished)

Stomach pain

Skin rash

Thrush (on my tongue, i have "cured" this once or twice before, but it just keeps coming back :mad:)

Sleep problems

Raised skin rash

Headache (24/7)

Sore throat

Decreased appetite

Extreme Fatigue

Circular skin rash on the back of both hands, and some on the wrist

Swelling of joints

Stiff neck

Blurred vision (episodes, and rarely happens)

Heart palpitations

Dizziness (happens for about 60 sec after standing, no this is not head rush. i can sit down for 1 sec then stand up SLOWLY and have it happen)

Bowel Disfunction

Shortness of breath (i cant move like 10 feet without feeling like im going to suffocate)

Hemorrhagic skin rash (my doctor said these are "Capillaries" that are popping under my skin)

and last, dry skin around the area most affected by these popping "Capillaries"

ok, some information about me and history;

i am 13, i am VERY interested in the medical feild. i had bad rashes when i was little but no doctor could figure out why. i am GUESSING they are related. i have a long family history of arthritis.

the arthritis is on my moms side, my i dont know my dad so i dont know what medical conditions affected his family.

i have been diagnosed with acid reflex more times than i can count, i take all meds ect that are given. and no matter what i do my stomach problems never go away, pain killers dont help my joint pain. i was on lorazapam (spelling?) or then my doctor put me on neproxen. followed by Nexium and a antibiotic mouth wash for the thrush. so far NOTHING has helped joint pain stomach or the thrush, and it is very annoying.

now, i looked up all my symptoms on google and got this:

Lyme, Addisons Disease, Celiac disease, Fibromyalgia (spelling?) and MS

a few days ago i had an MRI to check for MS. i have not gotten the results yet.

tomorrow i am going for another blood test to check for:

Creatinine (eGFR)
Alk. Phosphatase
Urinalysis (Chemical)

i am also having a:

Stool Culture
Stool Ova and parasites
Fecal occult blood

if anybody has any ideas i would be so greatful, i just want to be able to go outside again :(

thanks in advance for any replys,
