hi there, i would like to know if any one can help me

i am a 24 yr old female and i have always had body aches and pains - no one ever took me seriously since i was just a kid, but as i am older now, the pain hasnt gone and i know that it is not simply growing pains.

in the last few years i have put on a lot of weight - so my Dr put me on 2 months of phenteramine - i lost a few pounds, bit the side affects were not great. however the one thing that it did do was it made me feel alert and awake for the first time in along time. i didnt realize what a haze i had been. but since i had stopped the phen. i am perpetually tired but i cant sleep. its not like i cant stay a sleep - i cant fall asleep.

then, my joints in my hands hurt like crazy and now my legs hurt. for my hands i have resorted to using hand braces. they arent swolen or anything, but they so shake a little. it feels like the joints, but it is the entire hand!

i had an ovarian cyst a few years ago, and it popped and disappeared, but ever since, my lower right quadrant is so tender. i guard it all of the time - but scans and tests so nothing there...

i am sure that all of my problems are unrelated, but still i need to know whats going on and i dont know what to do anymore.

i dont know what to do - because all my tests are fine - nothing wrong i am as healthy as an ox - except i know that something isnt right...
i would love to hear if there is anything that any one can advise me about...
