Any suggestions would be so appreciated - I've already missed two months of my senior year in highschool. Now plans for college are in jeopardy. Symptoms are:
-Extreme fatigue (20 hours of sleep a day)
-Severe migraines
-Abdominal pain
-Loss of weight/ appetite
-Diareaa/ frequent bowel movements
-Nausea, no vomiting
All tests keep coming back negative, negative, negative! Been to a neurologist, GI, ENT, and given up on family doctor. My family and I are desperate for answers.
Thanks for your time and thoughts.

  • I have had the same thing for two years. Look into Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (more than the name implies) and Lyme Disease. Both are only vaguely understood and difficult to recognize. Beware that there is a lot of confusion and disagreement in the information you find, so be a smart consumer.
