My 14 year old daughter has been experiencing many symptoms. I personally don't think she's been feeling right since early summer but as of late, her symptoms have been getting worse. She is tired all the time, she has light-headedness, she has swollen glands (they make it difficult to breathe at times) she has numbness in her fingers/toes at times, she is freezing all the time. Her eyes are also always glassy. My pediatrician has done a bunch of blood work on her but everything comes back negative. We tested for mono, fasting sugar, iron, (all the normal blood work) and thyroid, everything was negative. She basically told us to wait a couple of months to see if her sympoms go away as if they are in head. I'm going to take her my Internal Medicine Doctor for a second opinion but wanted to know if anyone out there has experienced anything similar and would like to share their stories. Thank you!
