hey I'm 17 years old and i feel as though i have so many things wrong with me- I get really bad headaches, nose bleeds for no reason, rash, my hair falls out, i'm always dizzy, tired, hungry, i dont sleep well at night and lately i've noticed i have a hard bump on my bone, under the skin of my right middle finger near the joint. i've told my mum and she doesn't seem to care she just makes jokes like "you are always dizzy coz you watch tv". Should I be worried?

  • I think it would not do any harm to go and get a check up and mention your symptoms and the lump on your bone.At the very least it will set your mind at ease.

  • Sounds like a vitamin deficiency: vit C, essential fatty acids can cause nose bleeds, hair loss, poor wound healing, fatigue and much more. At the very least you should take EmergenC daily and find an EFA supplement with flax seed, borage, fish oils. Most Western diets are lacking in basic nutrients. Nutritional deficiency is often underdiagnosed and can cause many serious problems. Worth trying these and see if your symptoms improve - give yourself a month at least before you start seeing improvements. Hope this helps.DOM
