hi, im a 16 year old male. very underweight (im 5 ft 7 in and 90lbs) not by choice, i am unable to gain weight. Some times im very hungry and ill eat a lot and not gain weight, sometimes ill be hungry and as soon as im presented with food i become full (without eating anything), sometimes ill be very hungry and eat a small (i mean like 2 bites) and im full, and just other times i go whole days with out even being remotely hungry... im not sure why and ive been roughly this weight for, oh id say a good 4 or 5 years. i just cant gain weight.
some other, maybe unrelated or totally related, symptoms i have are...
shortness of breath
i used to get a migrainehttp://images.intellitxt.com/ast/adTypes/2_bing.gif a month on average, like the kind that i would throw up to get rid of it. but in the past year or so the frequency has declined
three or four times i spent an entire week or so coughing up large amounts of mucus (i probably spelled it wrong so snot).
abdominal pains when i exercise even the slightest bit
often when i get up my vision goes black, but im fully conscious and aware of what is going on. if this lasts for like 30 sec then i start shaking, and if it lasts for a about a minute my legs will give way and ill be sprawled on the floor till its over.
insomnia (which i have recently started taking meds for)
hands and feet are often times numb, and can even become purple.
diabetes runs in family (type 2)
roughly about a year ago i started taking adderallhttp://images.intellitxt.com/ast/adTypes/2_bing.gif for adhd, but ive had all above problems before i started taking
ive nvr drank, smoked, done drugs, or any of that kind of thing
i dont exercise much, i used to but the combination of shortness of breath and abdominal painshttp://images.intellitxt.com/ast/adTypes/2_bing.gif made it to difficult to really do much exercise... but in the past week ive been going on a 1-2 mile jog every day, and i plan on keeping it up
:confused: parents and drs. are aware of all this but they just tell me not to worry bout its prob nothing... but thats not good enough for me
