I would really appreciate any help that anyone can give me....I will try to be as detailed as possible.
I am 24 years old...and for approximately 3 years I have been CONSTANTLY sick. Its one thing right after the other. I generally suffer from bronchitis, pneumonia, urinary tract infections, kidney stones, abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea or constipation (they alternate) and extreme fatigue.
Over the past month I have had something different every week. First I came down with bronchitis, then pneumonia, then kidney stones, and now I am suffering from some kind of stomach virus that has lasted for 5 days. My blood pressure has been all over everywhere...and when they do the "supine test" it indicates that something is going on. However, my CBC came back fairly normal...other than indicating that I was trying to fight off something.
I have had my gallbladder and appendix removed...so those are not the issue. Also, I get ATLEAST 7 hours of sleep a night. My body doesn't respond to antibiotics (one indicator is how I will be on antibiotics for a UTI and will quickly get kidney stones). My hair is thinning out...and even though I am very fair skin, it has a MUCH paler appearance than normal. I constantly feel dizzy, and I have LARGE dark circles under my eyes.
I would really appreciate ANY help someone can give me....The doctors seem to think that it is all psycho-somatic. The other consensus is that since I got a post-op staph infection...my immune system is shot. However, that wouldn't explain 3 years of this going on. Someone PLEASE help. My family (who normally don't think the worse) are all really worried...and I am too!!
