well i am only 17, and untill about 4 years ago the only medical problem i had was asthma since i was a baby, and now 4 years later i have so many medical problems that i cant even count them on one hand, first i am still asthmatic but this has become severe, and also found i had a allergy to nuts last year.

2 months ago was diagnosed at anamic
4 years ago found out i had a curved spine
lasy year was diagnosed with arthritis in the hips and knees

now have a problem that keeps getting misdiagnose, all the doctors keep saying it is a uti or kidney infection, but as i have had this problem for to years it was this problem at first, but 2 years later it cant still be this, as had many antibiotics and still not going away, so i think it is something more serious

have been dyslexic for the past 12 years
also have epilepsy and excema

even though i have all these problems, in the past it has never bothered me and always been up beat about it. Now though even i am still upbeat about them except one, i am starting to feel the strain of always being ill

I'm not sure what's wrong with you, but I'm 19 and I have medical issues as well. (Asthma, stomach problems, muscle pain.) So I know how you feel. Hang in there.

Hang in there.No i havent seen one yet, should i?. I am not really not that bothered by the ones that being treated but somtimes it can be fustrating, the only one that is really bothering me is the one problem that they cant diagnose yet, is the problem with my bladder/kidneys. and it has ruined my life, and made me housebound.i always seem to be getting new medical issues, i guess i am just a unlucky person

  • Hello sineadHave you ever been checked for antinuclear antibodies (ANA), your symptoms could possibly be due to Lupus or another autoimmune disease but thats not the only possibility,other ailments like arthritis or Lyme`s disease are also possible.Don`t want you to be scared.I would see a doctor and possibly some specialists,especially internist,endocrinologist,rheumatologistGood luck ;)
