I'm a 20 year old female.
This month has been really awkward for me since for the most part I've always been quite healthy.

I've never been fond of hot weather to say the least, I get extremely annoyed and feel worn out even though Im Costa Rican.

Earlier this past month of March I was at Uni and the classroom was extremely hot to me although my classmates had their sweaters on and said it was cold. I began feeling dizzy, nauseous, and slightly sweating. Eventually ended up at the nurse's office. She said my blood pressure was slightly low, but nothing to be particularly concerned about, but she ordered a CBC.

When I got my results it said positive for thrombocytosis. I kept feeling quite dizzy, it has been a constant feeling of lightheadedness (like when you stand up really fast). I've also been having really bad knee pain for about 2 years but my other doctor only ordered Xrays and concluded it was nothing. however, after this thrombocytosis thing, the Uni doctor ordered ANAS and rheumatoid factor tests which both came out negative.

I have no idea whats going, and neither the doctors. I have a high sed rate, very mild petechiae, dizziness, fatigue, joint pain, and slightly low MCHC. My CBC was normal, although all of the numbers ranged borderline; some really borderline low and others borderline high like the WBC.

They said that the provisional diagnosis was polymialgia rheumatica, but then they said it could be fibromyalgia and Im still awaiting for the internist to say something, but in the meantime Im rather worried. Could anyone please please give me an opinion???
