I am an 18 year old College student and I am in need of some advice. Since last January or so I started having these very odd health problems. It started when I went to NYC and came down with a fever of 103 and the worst feeling in my head. I felt like there was static in my head and back, my eyes couldnt focus, i felt dizzy, fatigued and just overwhelmingly disoriented plus I get "yeast infections" (but its not yeast...?). Now, this happens every month. Some months it only lasts for two days and sometimes two weeks. I've been tested for the basics and the only thing I've found is in my vaginal fluids there is bacteria that is being produced inside of my body. The doctor basically told me to deal with it but its nearly impossible. I started working with a homeopathic doctor who seemed to help at first but nothing will stop my pain. I'm having a hard time getting through my classes just because I always feel tired, achy, over heated and just blah. I know that having fevers over 102 degrees for long periods of time cannot be good. Someone help me. What do I do? What do i ask the doctor? I just need this feeling to go away so I can function

Also, just in case this helps out anyone... I eat very well! I eat organic and hardly any sugar or processed foods. I also drink A LOT of water and take supplements and vitamins.

one more thing... I know this sounds ridiculous and youre just going to think i'm a stupid 18 year old but the only thing that helps my headaches and stomach is smoking weed. I didn't start using it until my headaches seemed unbareable but its truly the only thing that helps. I havent talked to my doctor about it because I think my mom would die... but anyway, sorry for the life story. Let me know what you think.
