Please, I am so desperate for an answer, if anyone has any information I would greatly appreciate it. This may be long, but I will give all the details I can. Iwill also be posting this on all forums for my symptoms.

My problems started approximately February of 2005. At the time I was extremly tired regardless of the amount of sleep I got, bruising for no apparent reason and had pains (maybe a 3 or 4 out of 10 on the pain scale) in my right abdomen (near the ovary). I did blood and urine tests with the first DR for standard things(thyriod, sugar ect.) Every thing was normal except for my white bloog cell count which was high at 14 (normal for me is a 8). Over the next year, my white count moved as high as 21 and as low as 11 but never back to normal. According to my hemotologist, I was tested for EVERY blood related disorder including lukemia, all autoimmune diseases, diabeties, and tic borne diseases. I also had a bone marrow biopsey and a full body cat scan. I have had my horomones, adreneline, and vitiamin/mineral levels checked. Everything has come back negative. The symptoms have lessened and greatened over the 18 months, but never gone away.

In January of 2006, I started to map out my ovulation. That month I ovulated on day 19 of a 35 day cycle (normal for me is between a 31-38 day cycle). Since then I have not ovulated. I am using 2 independant test kits, so I am pretty sure it is accurate. In march, 15 days after my last cycle, I had intense ovarian pain (an 8) an bleeding like a period. I had an ultrasound that showed no cysts. Now I get my period every 15-20 days and am in constant ovarian pain (a 3- a 9 depending on the day), on both the right and left sides. My white count is back up to a 14. I now am sleeping from 10-20 hours a day. And even when I am awake, I am not really AWAKE. I can and do fall back to sleep after sleeping for many hours. I have to drive for my job and live in fear that I will fall asleep behind the wheel and hurt someone. This is ruining my life. Please, if anyone can suggest something to look into, you will help me greatly. The DRs seem so baffled. They just tell me that the symptoms are "vague" and "could be anything".

A little info about me.... I am a 27 year old woman. Unknown genetic history(adopted) Normal blood pressure, no major illnesses in my life. I smoke a pack a day(nothing got better when I quit) drink rarely, eat a healthy diet, exercise when my energy level allows. I am overweight(215 lbs at 5'2) Weght loss is slow and difficult for me even at very restriced calorie intake. No depression issue.

Thank you for any help, Laura
