I am a 17 yr old female. I live in a very small town in British COlumbia. I have been chronically sick for the past year & half, nobody can figure out whats wrong with me, me & my family are very desperate to fix me, we have tried everything. ANy advice or diagnosis would be much appreciated. My symptoms are severe headaches that worsen with activity & never go away, dizziness, light/sound sensitivity, buzzing in the ears, stiff neck, sore throat that never goes away, nausesa, extreme fatigue, night sweats, jaw pain, difficulty swallowing & breathing. My headaches NEVER stop or go away. I have been on antifunguls, rounds of antibiotics & they do not help, i seem to have stop responding to them & become allergic to them., anti depressants, gabapentin, migrane medication, narcotics & NOTHING helps or takes away my head pain or symptoms. my sleep is terrible, my breathing & headaches always wake me up, im usually up half the night. I have had all sorts of cameras up my nose, spinal tap tested for meningitis & nothing shows up. all sorts of blood work.. a ct of my sinuses (without contrast) & the infectious disease specialist basically told me it wasnot an I.D, ordered a ct of my brain(with contrast) & kicked me & my mother ot. we doubt this too, cuz it could be lyme disease? keep in mind ive had a tonsillectomy & septum reconstruction/turbinate reduction thinking it would cure me. but no. :( my tonsillectomy was aprilst 2010 & we just found out just a few weeks ago that there was traces of actinimycosis in my tonsils. there has been no ct or mri with contrast of my head or brain. please please help me, i want my life back & have seen tons of doctors & no one has helped. diatrit7e f please help!
