My teenage daughter has been sick for a year now and we can not get any help from doctors. This started with a virus she had last year and she has been sick ever since. At first she was having major heart palpitations, shortness of breath, fatigue, vague aches, and nausea. Now she is having fatigue, extreme hunger and thirst, frequent urination, severe leg cramps, nausea, and dizziness. She also has numbness in her hands and feet and feels like she will pass out a lot. It looks like diabetes, but she has been tested for it and we have been checking her blood sugar at home and the highest she has been is 203. She has had numerous tests done ruling out diabetes, thyroid, and several other things. We are in the process of ruling out lyme disease, but i'm not sure it could cause these symptoms. Could lyme cause this? Or is there anything else it could be? We have been to so many doctors and they all think we're crazy, but I know there is clearly something going on.
