Hello, I am a 16 year old female. Ever since I was little i was always in pain. I’m sorry to burden you all, but I just really want to know what’s going on. Doctors just think I’m full of it, and don’t think it’s possible. Even if you could help me out on one topic your time and knowledge is GREATLY appreciated!

The most common pain I’ve got is stomach. I've had this ever since I was little, we then found out I was allergic to milk, not lactose. That was then taken out of my diet and labels were then checked thoroughly and were avoided. The pain still was still there. Now it’s been really acting up. I was admitted into the hospital for observation for a full weekend, and was given milk of magnesia, toradol, and prevacid. They did a series of blood tests, CT scan, upper GI, and ultrasound. Everything was normal, but i was still feeling the pain. I wasn't eating because it hurt so much, as soon as the food hit my stomach i would get the most excruciating pain in my stomach and I’d be unable to move. They now have me on previacid but without it I wouldn’t be eating at all.

I also have pain in my knees, really achy and sore usually when there is a cold wind, storm, or rain coming. Back when I was 13 I had an injury, and just recently got surgery done on it. I was prescribed Naproxen and Perkisets. Problem was there was a sack of water on the bone on my left knee on the inside part. (You know the piece facing the other knee) Anyways, so that was taken out and nerves are still growing back. After the surgery and even now I still get pain when weather changes happen. I've gotten tested for arthritics, but it's shown up negative. Arthritic does run in the family quite bad, but if i had it wouldn't it have showed up on the blood test?

I've also been just extremely tired. It doesn’t matter how much sleep I get I’m still tired. I've gotten 15 hours sleep and woke up still tired. I've been tested for anemia and mono. They were normal. An all around feeling of unwell.

Bad pressure in my head also has been happening for a while now. It feels like my head is going to explode, and also feels like it’s on fire along with my ears.

The one night back in June, I was sitting at my computer reading an article when I started to feel sort of weird. I would read then a word would be missing, so I started from where the sentence started and would try again. That word would be there but the next few weren’t. Then my vision went really weird, it was like I was looking underwater at bunch of bubbles, or in the bubbles. So I went downstairs to my mom and was just standing there shaking. I laid down on the couch and was shaking and didn’t know where I was, I was slurring my words and not making much sense at all, i was looking all over the room really fast, i was sweating, my head was hot (like feverish) and my feet and hands were cold and clammy. I was menstruating at the time. My mom called 911, the arrived took my vitals, blood sugar and everything was starting to return to normal. They didn’t take me cause id be waiting in the ER waiting room with everyone else because of car crash victims that just arrived, and cause I was going back to normal. The male didn't see a need to go either, but the female wanted me to go. The next day I was shaky and tired like usual.

Thanks for reading my issues, any advice or information would be greatly appreciated. I’m going back to the doctors on the 27th of August Please post before then!

  • You show classic signs of Lyme disease. The tests are very inaccurate. Bowen or Igenex labs are the best labs to test for this. IN addition I would make sure you know your B12 levels. B12 deficiency can cause a lot of your symptoms as well, and is underdiagnosed. Normal levels are between 200-1100, but if you are under 500 and have neurological symptoms you should be supplemented with methyl B12. Are you on any meds currently?DOM

  • You are on birth control? I was wondering about this - do you know the side effects of birth control pills? Do you know that stroke or dvt (blood clot) is a rare side effect? YOUR SYMPTOMS IN JUNE SOUND TO ME LIKE A POSSIBLE TIA (PRE STROKE SYMPTOM). I think this could very possibly be caused by your birth control pill. How long have you been taking it and what brand are you on? Do you smoke? Also, please know that antibiotics completely interfere with birth control effectiveness. What antibiotics are you taking? Doctors don't look at side effects of medications. They just don't take the time. Please post the names of your meds and look them up on www.drugs.com or www.rxlist.com Best wishesDOM

So this birthconrtol seems to work alot better, also helps me more with my cramps and chronic backpain. No i do not smoke, never have never will. Verry allergic. The antibioitcs that im taking are azithyromycin i think..im not too sure, to sick and tired to get out of my bed to go downstairs..ive only been on it since tuesday. Doctor told me thier only 6 pills, but it stays in the system for 10days. Also told me that it didnt matter if i took the medication with food or without, Well i found out for myself that my stomach being bad as it is couldnt handle it and i was up vomiting most of the night. Next day i took the pill with food and i was fine, more tired but no vomiting. Medication names:PrevacidTricyclen loazithyromycin (i think thats what its called.) Done pills tomorrow though.
