i have been having all these weird symptoms for 4 months, and about a month ago i was told i had gone through bronchitis. they hadn't caught it earlier because my mom refused to take me to the doctor. the problem is the symptoms won't go away and my mom says i am still recovering but it has been a month. she won't take me to the doctor because she thinks one visit is enough and after that everything will get better even if you are still in pain. i have been experiencing:

random fevers ranging from 99 - 101.4
extreme fatigue
early morning headaches
nausea
persistant coughing (the kind that is deep in your chest and it hurts when you cough)
lots of infections
dizziness
losing weight (im not on a diet, my metabolism is too fast for that)
weird vision change that happened a while ago and never really went away
joint pain
lymph nodes are swelling


is this just normal?:confused:

  • You must go to the doctor. Looks like some infections. And your frequent infections may mean that you have a weakened immune system.

  • Tell your mom this could be very serious, it could be Leucemia, N-Hodkin Lymfoma,Autoimune disease or a severe infection
