hey im 19 and i REALLY dont have money to go to a doctor but i was wondering what could possibly be a cause of all of the symptoms that ive had in the past month... everything has just gotten so much worse in the past couple of days.
my symptoms are:
massive "black-outs"
loss of appetite
muscle weakness
random body/back pains
sleep more than normal
no energy

because of all this it is hard to drive and take care of my 5 month old son and walk anywhere the only time im not dizzy is when im sitting/lying down. can someone give me advice on what this could possibly be?

  • Keri. You aren't getting enough oxygen to your brain. Hopefully it's anemia. I left you some info on your other post...tips on how to tell if it's anemia. Otherwise it could be something cardiovascular. Could also be neurological or autoimmune...long list of possibilities. Nobody here will be able to tell you what it is and which specialist to go to. You need to start with an internist and get a physical and bloodtests. Then you will know whether you need a specialist and which one. There should be a few free clinic for you to choose from in your area. There are also places that charge on your ability to pay. Also, Medicaid is out there for people just like you.

  • Your symptoms could be the result of a heart or neurological condition,a condition called Vasovagal Syncope also should be taken into consideration
