hi
I need help finding out whats wrong with me

i have dark circles under my eyes constantly, i can barely stand on my feet most the time, i have lost pretty much all energy and really cannot do what i was able to do before
i cant move around much
im constantly tired
i have no appetite (everything i eat makes me sick)
i get motion sickness easily
light, sound and movement make me very sick

my stomach and head are constantly aching
i feel like ive started losing feeling in my hands
its very hard for me to warm up, im constantly cold, freezing cold
my bones hurt alot of the time and are easily hurt (fractured, broken)
I cannot concentrate on anything, at all
i have forgotten several times what im doing (ill b talking about something and completely forget what i was saying)

i have extreme mood swings, im mainly angry though. Sometimes ill b walking and have t stop because it feels and (to me) looks like the ground under my feet is spinning

in the mornings, its extremely hard for me to get out of bed. i cannot feel my body, all i feel is a feeling of extra weight pulling me down

i passed out about a week ago
i get dizzy, black out,i feel like im not breathing sometimes (i really cannot breathe sometimes)
my skin has lost color (become pale)

____________
last year i had problems with depression/anxiety but i was never on any kindof medication for it. i thought it passed seeing how i no longer felt depressed or anything for about 3 months

as a child, i had a few problems, but they were vary small and treated (cured (?)).
Im constantly having appointments made to doctors who tell me to keep journals and some tell me theres nothing wrong
but i know theres something wrong, i can feel it (obviously) and i am not crazy


I honestly don't know whats wrong with me
I feel like my body is slowing down and slowly, but surely, falling apart
i come home everyday with a new symptom to add to the list.
It feels as if something new is showing up everyday

Can anyone help me find out whats wrong? PLEASE?

(im sorry this is so unorganized and long, i really couldn't think straight enough to write this description any better right now)

i am 16, female

  • How's your diet? Are you getting enough water? Start studying nutrition online and try to determine what you are lacking. Get a physical with blood work. Talk with a doctor. Dark circles can be allergies or kidneys. You could have asthma, too. Get a bone scan and see if you have brittle bones...you need some very specific blood work, too. Talk with your mom about getting you in to see a doctor.

Get another docs opinion and get a full thyroid test done, as well as cortisol test and B12/Iron. Depending on your doc and how well they interpret tests, thyroid can get misdiagnosed. Consider finding a naturopath who may look at your symptoms in a different light, and who may have more experience with nutritional deficiencies. How are your periods? Do you have a regular period? Is it light or heavy? What is your diet like? Do you drink soda? Best wishesDOM

  • I agree that the thyroid would be a good place to start, but it does sound like you have more then just thyroid problems. Hypothryoridism can be secondary, so checking for these tests would be a good first step: TSHFree T3Free T4Anti-TpoAnti-TG You can usually see changes in your eyebrows. Look to see if you are losing the outter part. Compare your face now to any picture you have of yourself from before you felt sick. You should aslo ask to have your adrenals tested by having your cortisol levels tested in serum (am and pm), salvia (am and pm) urine (24 hour collection). This is all I can think of at the moment, but I will get back to you if anything pops into my head later on. Hope this helps Kiera

  • Try reading "Unprotected" by Miriam Grossman, M.D. It will probably open your eyes up to your underlying emotional issues because unfortunately you sound just like myself and I'm 24 years of age! You need to talk to a professional counselor, not interns, and a psychiatrist may help a bit. I am all natural though, and was prescribed Prosac. I take 5HTP instead (natural suppliment) and I am going to psychotherapy at least once a week with a great counselor. Hang in there, I am also feeling worse at times but it is a healing process of long term repression of memories and emotional abuse I never knew until now. You may be shocked after reading that book, being a female in this generation. Hope it helps you, it REALLY helped me.

  • hi, have you looked up the symptoms for lymes disease? It mimics everything under the sun. They diagnosed me at first with bi-polar and then because of all the pain they said I had fibromyalgia and after many years of them thinking i was bi-polar, suicidal, borderline personality disorder and post traumatic stress disorder that was all on the mental side due to my Dr.refusing to give me pain meds as i had severe pain in my back and neck. Other symptoms as time went on was patches of burning skin were it hurt for clothes to rub my body, then I had joint pain and then when typing to long my fingers would begin to ache to typing to much. I had seen several Dr's and finally found one that put me on vicoden and oxycodone for the pain. I have not been suicidal since they gave me the pain pills. I am a single disabled mom of 3 kids and it has been rough. After moving from one area to another and always ending up with a new Dr. I found this awesome lady and she did a panel of blood tests that was over 6 feet long. They found I had lymes disease. Must of had it for 10 years. suprised it didnt kill me. All I can say is God was with me. After my Dr. found I had lymes disease she put me on 2 different antibiotics. They made me very, very sick and by the 3rd week i had to stop taking them. I couldnt take care of my kids or myself. I made colloidal silver and started taking that and within 2 weeks I was feeling a tons better than i had ever felt. I made my own colloidal silver generator for approx. 25-30 dollars and it costs me 1/2 gallon of distilled water ever time I make it and it lasts forever. You all should read up on colloidal silver. it kills over 650 diseases and its cheap to make and it doesnt hurt your body like antibiotics does. anyone who wants to know more about it google it and anyone who wants to know more about how to make a cheap colloidal silver generator, email me at angelwings@visp.net. the colloidal silver generators on line are too expensive and to buy colloidal silver is very expensive. it is the most awesome product i have ever seen. dont taste bad and it kills only the bad stuff in your body. the only thing is that when taking it you have to drink lots and lots of water or toxins will build up in your body. They say it even cures some cancer. I believe it. my parents make there own and they havent had one sick day i think in over 10 years. they take it in small doses every day. i want to help you if i can I am not a Dr. but i have found many thing s that help if your dr. wont give you pain meds. Go to your local health food store or go online and order this stuff called Codizone. its in a 4 oz. bottle. Also look for other homeopathic pain meds like oat seed(liquid 1oz bottle -approx 9.00dollars)others such as kava but its nasty tasting but it works also and all these remedies are made by herb pharm. Call herbpharm on the phone and give them your symptoms and they can help you with stuff that will reduce your pain and possibly help in healing. I am willing to help you with the colloidal silver and showing you how to make a generator or making you one for the price it costs me. I dont want to make any money off someone elses pain, i want to help you. please write me and tell me all your symptoms and i will see what i can find out. please research colloidal silver before you have me make you a generator. I dont want anyone going in with their eyes closed. I am not a dr. nor am i giving any diagnosing I am just telling you what helped me. It has taken me 13 years to find the help i needed but if i were you and if you have medical the place to start would be to have your dr. do a panel of tests. lymes disease doesnt always show up positive but if you have ever seen a bullseye anywere on your body then you can probably say that at one time you were either bit by a tick or mosquito and they carry the disease and thats one way to tell if you have lymes disease. I have been watching on tv a show called "mystery diagnosis" and its on the learning channel. it might be advantagious to watch this show. I get it with dish satellite. theres a lot of strange diseases out there and you might find something out from watching the show. Please research lymes disease and fibromyalgia and chronic fatique syndrome. lymes disease mimics many things and as i said before they thought i had fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome but the underlying problem was lymes disease. theres a cure for lymes but not fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome.hiI need help finding out whats wrong with me i have dark circles under my eyes constantly, i can barely stand on my feet most the time, i have lost pretty much all energy and really cannot do what i was able to do beforei cant move around muchim constantly tiredi have no appetite (everything i eat makes me sick)i get motion sickness easilylight, sound and movement make me very sick my stomach and head are constantly achingi feel like ive started losing feeling in my handsits very hard for me to warm up, im constantly cold, freezing coldmy bones hurt alot of the time and are easily hurt (fractured, broken)I cannot concentrate on anything, at alli have forgotten several times what im doing (ill b talking about something and completely forget what i was saying) i have extreme mood swings, im mainly angry though.

  • Go to a Rheumatologist and have your anti-nuclear antibodies (ANA) test along with your Rheumatoid factor. Could be any number of auto-immune diseases. A lot of the time depression is a symptom of an underlying health related issue. Also get tested for, Epstein-Barr virus. If you've ever had mono, it can be recurrent.Hope this helps.

    8 Surprising Facts About Cholesterol

    Did you know that one in six US adults has high cholesterol?

  • Hi, i really think this still could be Anxiety since you said that you had it before, i think this because i had the same problems. Even if you think you've got rid of your anxiety it can sneak up on you (has anything happend that is making you anxious?). Also, the main cause of "Health" Anxiety is Anger, so if your angry with your symptoms this will be making it worse. There is no harm in going to a doctor and talking about how you feel but remember anxiety can cause pains all over the body and if you have new symptoms everyday, this leads me to think it's definitely Health Anxiety but i'n no doctor, this is just my opinion :)Be strong x

  • Dear Long Message with many symptoms: I would suggest that you see a cardiologist. The tiredness, cold feet and hands and dizziness may have to do with how your blood is circulati-ng through your heart. Then see a nuerologist. Hope everything works out.
