Sorry, I'm new to this so i don't even know if i'm posting this in the right place :confused:. But i guess let me just start from the beginning. I'm 19 and healthy for the most part, according to the doctors ive seen in upstate new york.
It sort of started my freshmen year of high school, I used to be a swimmer and was going for my lifeguard test. I must have over-worked myself because on my way out my whole body hurt. I was really weak and could barly move. When i got to my parents car i fell, and my dad had to pick me up. As he did my vision went completly white and spotty. After that i threw up and almost passed out. My parents called the ambulance for me. When they got there , they found nothing wrong and by that time my vision was back.
I went to my doctor for a normal checkup, just to see if anything was wrong. They found nothing wrong.
Over the years in high school, my health seemed to get worse and i would get more and more anxiety attacks. Thats the only way i would explain what i felt. My throat would like tighten up to the point were i couldnt talk , i felt like i couldnt breathe , and sometimes my face felt numb.
Now im starting college , and i can barly go to school because of these symptoms. Ive been to several doctors and even to the hospitol many times, they always check my vitals and everything is normal...But i never feel normal. These symptoms never fully go away either. They get worse and better..But i havent been able to function properly since it worsened october 07. I went to 3 different ENTs. One told me i had an allergy to food as a result of a blood test. Then i didnt fully believe i had a food allergy so i went to an Allergist and he did the needle test on my arm..Turns out i'm not allergic to much accept pollen and the normal seasonal allergies. Sorry for the long rant , i'm just very frustrated with this situation and wish there was a way to make it go away. I think itd be easier if they found something wrong cuz then they could treat it :eek:
