so i'm 17 years old, and pretty healthy.. the only problems i've ever had were ear infections, so i got my tonsils taken out because they said that would help.. and it did. SO i've been good for a while after that..

Well here's my problem..
I've been sick for almost a year now...I first started getting really paranoid, & i do not use drugs, and then my whole left side of my body went almost numb, its was kind of like tingly like i was asleep, but i couldnt feel anything really. I went to a neuologist, and he didnt really do anything...
so then i start getting HORRIBLE headaches, i mean like crippling migraines. I 've been to several different doctors, on soo much different medicine, and nothing takes away my problem. I was diagnosed with a b12 deficency, and have to get injections and have for almost 6 months now. Well, my levels are back to normal..but I STILL have headaches, my doctor put me on a controlled substance to try to knock the pain, but it doesnt even affect me at all.
Now, I have some swollen glands, and my muscles just ache so bad.. my hand is now doing the numb/tingle thing agian..and i'm not sure.. like the muscles in my body hurt so bad it is a pain to breathe in and out. I don't smoke or anything like that. I'm just very confused and very much in pain.. Any ideas of what could be going on with me?

Also i'd like to add.. when my head hurts, its only the right side. my headaches are pretty isolated to that side and then in the back. But when i go numb its my left side... and i know thats how strokes work, its one side of your brain but effects the opposite side of your body.. I'm not having mini strokes am i? help me please...
