I don't know whats wrong and I'm scared that it's something serious. I think I have a lot of things, im a bit of a hypocondriac so that doesn't help.
my symptoms:
. my head feels like it has a tight band around it, it feels empty, i feel like i cant think clearly, it feels like there is a pressure.
. i feel like i can't remember things, like i can't say how i'm really feeling
. forgetfulness
. abdomin pain on the outer right and outer left side, just below my boobs to below my hip bone, its like a sharp pain, stabbing, stingy
. can't concentrate
. i feel like i'm in a dream world and i'm trapped inside myself
. soft stool
. irregular period
. random pains through my arms, legs, and head
. my eyesite is weird, i feel like im scanning things over really fast, and to conentrate i have to take a second look and focus to see it clearly
. i ve been over eating
. im having trouble getting to sleep. i usually can t get to sleep easily, or i'll sleep too much and be tired again during the day
. i'm peeing more than usual
. im dizzy a lot
. i feel like if i wanted to throw up, i could
. i feel restless like i'm waiting for something
. i can't relax
. i can't really smell things like i used to
. my hearing seems a little worse
. i feel unemotional
. i feel weak
. uninterested in things that used to make me happy
. my mind just feels really cloudy
a lot of times my neck and shoulders are stiff
. sometimes i have an irregular heart beat for a couple seconds
.

if anyone has an idea of what i have, please share your opinion! I would be very grateful!!!
i'm a junior in high school and i feel like i'm going to die
feeling like i can't think is driving me crazy!!!!

The more you're affraid, the quicker it seems to suck you down.Give yourself credit for seeking help! BRAVO!!!!! :)Continue to seek the help you need, and meanwhile...Be with friends and family who love you (but don't let them tell you to "snap out of it!").Try meditation...investigate binuarul beatsKnow you are a wonderful person!

I would be very grateful!!!i'm a junior in high school and i feel like i'm going to diefeeling like i can't think is driving me crazy!!!! Hi sweetie....listen I am not going to pressume to know what may or may not be wrong with you....but I certainly know what you are feeling and fearing. ...let me ask you some things if I may.... Is this all very new to you? Did you feel normal and fine in the past? Do you have any history of anxiety or anything that could explain a lot of this? Secondly have you been examined by a neurologist or had an MRI done? I think it would be a great idea if you had an MRI done if not. Your symptoms can all be neurological....the fact that your inner feelings and emotions seem part of it is a big red flag. You should see a neuro if you have not. I'd also like to give you a last suggestion...........you said you are in JR High....you are very young then....not to be gross or embaressing but how long has it been since you started menstrating because all of what you are feeling can also be symptoms of plain old puberty. The changing of hormones and chemicals in the body can wreak havoc in someone who is sensitive or easily influenced by the changes in their bodies......this is why so many teenagers begin a decent into depression and mental illness at that time of life. Don't be afriad hun, no one has stamped an expiration date on your forhead...Face your suffering and fight it back like a warrior! You are very young and the resilance of youth is amazing at times. Don't fight it if they want you to see a mental health doctor either, even if you believe this is not mental because a good mental health doctor can tell by your history and your personality that you're being honest and may help you cope with the effects in the meantime as the medical doctors work on figuring it out....that is my advice...Best of Luck to you!

  • Have you been checked for Grave's Disease at all? Other thyroid conditions? It might not hurt to check antibodies even if your thyroid hormones are okay. Another thing that comes to mind is celiac disease. Has anyone looked into that yet? Or other autoimmune diseases?I am sorry you are having such a hard time finding out what this is.I hope someone figures it out soon.
