I have weird, seemingly unrelated symptoms

Posted In: Dehydration RainbowfiedApplejack | August 12, 2014 | 09:56 PM

I'm an 11 year old girl with symptoms and I've had dreams about these being all related to some kind of rare, unusual genetic disorder I've never heard of, and fears of developing worse ones!

So here are all of my symptoms:

1: Stigmatism in my left eye, first noticed changes in my vision at 8 years old

2: Psychological symptoms of Asperger's syndrome

3: Chronic minor itching all over my body

4: Usually I don't feel the least bit tired, even if I've stayed up until 4 a.m.

5: Unusual amounts of tangling in my hair, which makes it extremely hard to comb

6: Weird craving for any sugary foods, I'll even eat sprinkles and sugar together with nothing else

7: Episodes with headaches, slightly fast heartbeat, inner ear pain, and dizziness nearly every time I stand up

8: Strange fear of complete darkness

9: Every time I have a headache it only affects a few parts of my brain and is VERY severe

10: Slightly dark urine, as if I'm always dehydrated
