For almost a year now I've has these major head pains.
They drop me to my knees. I cry because it hurts so bad.

My symptoms tend to be
>always tired but can never get to sleep
>very shaky
>sharp pains in my chest
>whole body goes weak and I collapse
>been told i have major mood swings ~I don't see them~
>I'm always on edge
>i get irritable very easily and scream

The only pills i take are OrthoTriCyclen (birth control) and my Sertraline (for my adjustment disorder and anxiety)
I could not make it through a full say of school. I miss at least four to five months of school last year and this year i decided not to go because i didn't want to have to fight with it.
Each day it gets harder and harder to keep going.
My problems with the pain just makes me wanna give up on even living.
I went to at least four doctors. I had a MRI done and it came back with nothing. No one has been able to figure out whats wrong.
I have been diagnosed with adjustment disorder with anxiety. I have to see a psychologist and have a personal counselor.
Not a single person has been able to help me.
I'm 16 and can't live life as a normal teen.
The only people who are even trying to help is my mom and step-dad.
If any one can help i would greatly appreciate it!...
