Hello members,

I am back once again with a few weird but bizarre symptoms that have come down in a few days and am unsure what these could be from. I'll give you a brief medical history and then the symptoms, and am asking for what you think this could possibly be, because all the doctors think its in my head, but I know something isn't right.

April Driesse, Eighteen year old female presenting with symptoms such as pain and discomfort in the lower abdomen, cloudy urine, pain with urination and during intercourse, generalized weakness, that was noticed after drinking two cups of coffee, weakness was noted in both arms when she started typing and told her fiancee she "felt funny" and couldn't really explain it. Lightheartedness was also noted while standing, nausea with the feeling of needing to vomit, but can not. Migraine Headaches associated with what was thought to be stress for about three weeks straight on and off, haven't had a period since March 2008, no pregnancy reported. Has been having trouble sleeping, with an unsure reason why. Just cant fall asleep, no matter how hard she tries. Feels generally fatigued during the daytime, and when she is able to finally sleep, sleeps for two to three days on end. Also new symptom of not being hungry, and not eating at all, and then feeling as though she is starving and needs food.

Medical History:
1. Polycystic Ovarian Disease
2. Chronic UTI's and Kidney Infections, unknown cause
3. Thyroid Disease
4. Hepatic Hemangioma, benign
5. 3 previous miscarriages, unknown causes

Patient is suppose to be on medication for all conditions, but can not afford the medication, therefore can not take the medication. Patient was suppose to be on the following medications:

1. Trazodone 100mg, insomnia related symptoms
2. Levothyroxine 50mcg, Thyroid Disease
3. Birth Control with hormones, controlling PCOS


Any ideas of what may be causing my sudden onset of flu-like illnesses? I have been to the ER, and they claim there is nothing wrong with me, so then why am I feeling this way?
