Hi, I'm an 18 year old female, and appreciate any help on this. I've been out of school for almost two years, because my fatigue and lightheadedness is so extreme. I've been to so many doctors, and have yet to be properly diagnosed, just have been treated by my separate symptoms. I'm scheduled for an mri with a neurologist soon because they want to make sure I don't have a brain tumor but, I don't want it to be that, but I also want to be diagnosed. In the past month or so I've gotten a really strange symptom, like my brain is being squeezed, I feel pressure from all corners of my head, and I get rushes of dizziness. They have been so severe I can't even do my home tutoring. I've been checked for thyroid,adrenal problems, hypoglycemia and tests are all negative..Well to get to the point, my symptoms are:
Lightheadedness (sometimes relieved by eating)
horrible head aches
Waking up with puffy eyes
chest tightness, heart palpiations
losing hair from the front of my head( and I have pretty thick hair)
ocassional feelings of anxiety
swollen lymphnodes (especially in my neck and chest, I had to get part of thyroid removed because they thought it was thyroid cancer)
sorry so many symptoms, if anyone knows what may be causing this, please help! thank you -Katie
