Okay so I'm pretty worried about this. I'm 17, female. Been having headaches nearly everyday for the past year or so; a sharp constant throbbing pain. I've taken excedrine migraine, advil, ibuprofen, Tylenol; pretty much everything in my medicine cabinets but nothing helps much. For the past few weeks I've been feeling pressure in my head. As if it's about to explode ! This happens off and on, but when it does the 'pressure' is unbearable. Along with that, I've been nauseous, light headed, dizzy, and it seems like I have the worst balance. I even get tingling sensations all over my body. (I have that right now) it feels as if there are a gang of ants crawling underneath my skin And in my stomach. I feel like theres a lump in my throat, as if maybe I need to throw up or have something stuck. I've also had these sharp, throbbing pains through out my body. For instance, it happens often in the middle of my pinky finger on my left hand, it's this sharp, SHARP throbbing pain that only lasts a minute or two then subsides. Then after awhile it will happen on another part of my body. The pain also becomes unbearable, but luckily it doesn't last in long episodes. Tho it happens many, many times through out my days. This has been happening since this past June. A few days before thanksgiving, I had very sharp stabbing pains on the left Side of my mid lower back. This also didn't last long, but happened multiple times throughout the day. Same spot same same stabbing intensity. I've had these pains ever since, and now I'm starting to think I'm just falling apart. I'm only 17, I shouldn't be having all these pains and problems at such a young age! I'm very worried, and yes I have told my family. But they don't seem to care Nor listen. My mom just says I 'never stop complaining' but that right there should be a red flag that something is wrong. I'm not sure what to do at this point, as I am underage and can't even be seen by a doctor without my mom taking me. Any suggestions on what this could be? I know it's alot of symptoms all at once but at this point I'm desperate for some answers. I'd appreciate any and all feedback. So please help ! Thank you. *
