Here are all of my diagnoses and symptoms (in chronological order) from age 14 til age 21:

mononucleosis, Graves Disease, ideopathic autoimmune disease, chronic cholecystitis (inflammmed gallbladder, no stones; it had to be removed), fibromyelgia, IBS (constipation), edema, prediabetes, PCOS (severe acne, no menstruation, but no cysts visible in ultrasound), alopecia, frequent urinary tract infections (culture showed streptococcus A), fracture of right distal fibula, non-union fracture (right distal fibula), IBS (diarrhea), nauseau osteopoenia, chronic kidney pain

I have low lipids (LDL 30, HDL 70), low blood pressure (80/50), low body temperature (96 degrees F) and a BMI of 20. I have always been thin. Food-wise, I have been a "health nut" since age 16. I do upper body strength training every other day with 10 pound weights. I walk every day; I would like to run but I recently had ankle surgery to fix the non-union.

I take lots of medicine, including synthroid because they destroyed part of my thyroid to fix the Graves. I don't think my list of health problems makes sense.

I'm sick and frustrated :(. Can anyone make sense of my disease list?
