My daughter is overweight. She complains all the time she does not feel good. Nonspecific joint complaints. She says she feels like the kids in jump rope for heart video. She complains of dizziness fatigue stomach pain. We have checked thyroid studies rheumatoid panel CBC and Chem 7 all normal. Tried counseling no issue identified. Resting pulse 130 at times. Help. All docs are saying nothing is wrong but there has to be something. Her entire demeanor has changed and I am desperate for answer. I am an RN but did nit specialize in peds
Without evaluating your daughter, I cannot say for sure what the problem is. The list of potential problems in this case is rather long. The elevated heart rate could be consistent withpostural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, but there are many other features associated with it, some of which you mention. I would recommend that you take her to a pediatric diagnostic center if your primary physician is not getting an answer for you.
