Hi, I'm actually going to see a doctor tomorrow about a suspected ear infection but I was thinking about asking him some other things that I've been worried about as well. I don't know why but I feel the need to ask here too to see what other people think! I realize a lot of the things I'm going to describe could be because of an unbalanced diet (I don't really make an effort to balance my diet, I just eat what I feel like eating.) Also, a bit of general information: I'm 17 years old, 6 feet tall, about 140 pounds, male.

OK, here are my concerns:

-I've been developing wrinkles on my forehead, seems like I'm too young for wrinkles!
-From time to time (probably once every month or two) when I take a deep breath my heart hurts as if it is pressing against my ribs or something, this only lasts for about a minute or so during which time I just take small breaths in and out and don't feel the pain. This has been happening for years.
-I have been getting little indents on my back with a purple tint to them, they don't itch or anything (I thought it might be something like shingles but I don't know what that looks like or if it itches, also there aren't many of these spots).
-Chronic sinus issues! Or maybe not sinuses in general but I almost ALWAYS have a stuffed nose (95% of the time!), also I don't know it's related but I always have black bags under my eyes that are very dark - people have asked if I had gotten a black eye before O.o.
-Often times I get shaky hands and arms. Example: I was in class and had my elbow over the edge of my desk and felt a twitching in my arm, I looked at my elbow and a muscle in it seemed to be spasming... Other examples are if I try to hold out my hand it is visibly shaking, even now. My legs also get shaky sometimes.

Well, I guess that's all I can think of for the time being, could a lot of this just be me being paranoid? Or perhaps I need to pay more careful attention to my diet, it would be difficult to describe all the things I think I have enough of or things I think I may not have enough of so going by the symptoms I would be pleased to answer peoples specific questions! Right now I feel like I'm the most unhealthy person in the world after listing so many things wrong with me! ^^;;

Thanks in advance for any help! I'll try to answer any questions ASAP.
