I have no clue what's wrong with me, but something's definitely wrong...:confused:


Constant exhaustion. I'm always tired and simple physical activity can wear me out. When I'm just walking down the street with my boyfriend, I tell him that we have to stop and I hunch down with my hands on my knees and try to make myself feel better. When I walk up a flight of stairs, I get this sudden dizzyness and headache and I just need to sit down. I am constantly getting headaches and nothing helps. I've tried Advil, Tylenol, and Aspirin. Nothing. I have to just wait them out. I am also extremely sensitive to light. When I look up at lights at my school or if I walk into a bright room, my vision gets extremely distorted and I actually cannot see anything for a bit. With that then comes the dizzyness and headache. Because of the dizzyness, I start to stumble. I also get dizzyness and headaches from standing up after laying down and this happens every single time. I get weak and I sometimes can't keep a tight fist because I'm feeling so weak. Also, when I'm sitting down or being still, I sometimes feel these weird muscle twitches in my arm. I don't know what they're from. Could this be neurological? Please, if anyone has any idea why these things are happening to me, tell me.


Other symptoms (not really big deals... I think:)

I have diarrhea all the time. When I'm in public places, I freak out because I have a very hard time holding it in.

I get nauseas constantly. I could just be eating a sandwhich and then I randomly feel like I have to throw up. I have to just stop eating and throw away the rest of it :(

I have tendinitis in my right elbow (from softball.) But I feel that my left elbow is starting to get weak and painful. Same goes for both of my knees.

I have pain all the time. Whether it's in my neck or legs. I am constantly hurting.

*If I remember any other symptoms, I'll tell you*


Medical history:

When I was a toddler, I had surgery for bilateral club foot. (A lot of ankle pain because of it.)

I'm currently up to date with all the vaccinations a 15 year old girl should have.

I'm currently taking Yaz, the birth control pill.

In April 2009, I had tonsilitis and I went to see an Ear, Nose, and Throat specialist because my pediatricians don't know anything. He suggested I have my tonsils removed but I'm not too sure about that yet.


Please, if anyone can help me, talk to me!!!

  • During the day i'm fine i eat everything fine and then when it starts to get dark out I feel like i'm going to throw up but nothing ever comes out.I get head aches most of the time i get a little weak and shaky. I just burp and i take a tums to help my stomach, but it sometimes doesn't work. At first i thought it was nothing. But i've been going through this for like a month or two. I want to go to the doctor but my mom thinks its nothing. But now its almost every night instead of every other night or every few nights.

  • Hi Irene, You might want to have your thyroid checked out. You might have a hyperthyroid which could be causing you to have many of the symptoms you have mentioned. I would just have the doc do complete blood work on you to find out. Also check for anemia. If its not that I would try a different birth control pill...if your symptoms started after taking the pill. Hope you figure it out. Take care.Hi Irene,B12 deficiency appears quite likely. http://forums.wrongdiagnosis.com/showthread.php?p=189075#post189075 come on over and post your story and find out the symtoms from our list of 300 and see how many match.

I'm no expert, but I have had several of the same symptoms as you and they started soon after I began taking Loestrin 2 years ago. Google BC side effects and you will be convinced :) Good luck!

  • Sounds like a low iron issue to me. I've seen this in someone I dated a long time ago.

  • There are some people who can experience negative reactions to vaccines. In the abscence of any other obvious possible causes, you might wish to research side effects, toxins, and reactions to vaccines.Sounds like a low iron issue to me. I've seen this in someone I dated a long time ago.

  • It could be a viral infection from Epstein-Barr virus, HHV-6 virus, parvovirus B19 or enterovirus, all of which can instigate chronic fatigue syndrome.
