I'm 16 years old and have been having ongoing symptoms for about a year now. They started out as abdominal but I have recently started having other problems as well. My doctors just keep testing me and prescribing things to try but have yet to give me a diagnosis. Can anyone help?

These are my symptoms:

Sharp pain in the lower left of my stomach *less frequent now than it used to be & I'm not sure that its related to my other symptoms*
Constant headache
Nausea nearly 80% of the time
Dizziness
Faintness/Light Headed
Fatigue
Heart Palpitations?: every so often my heart feels like its beating very hard in my chest; sometimes painful
Disorientation: sometimes I forget where I am and what I'm supposed to be doing, just a feeling of total confusion.

Tests/Medications:

Blood tests for anemia, thyroid, and blood sugar levels all negative
EKG; haven't gotten the results yet
Naproxen for migraine; had no effect
Hyosciamine/AcipHex/Protonix/Prevacid/etc. for stomach; a few offered some relief but none remedied the issue

This is becoming increasingly difficult and frustrating for me. :( I'm so tired and sick, it's affecting my performance at school and my abilites to do my everyday activities. If anybody has an idea of what this could be I would love to hear it. Thank you for reading.
