I'm a 15 year old female and last October (almost a year ago) I started getting these headaches every now and then, over the next few months they started getting more severe, more frequent and they lasted longer until it got to a point where I was having it all day almost everyday, it really affected my school work as I couldn't go in much and when I did I couldn't consentrate. Then I started getting dizzy and nearly fainting, this usually occurred when i came out of lifts, stood up after sitting down, ect. I also felt totally drained of energy and slept most the time I was at home. I went to the doctors many times and they just told me to take pain killers and see how it goes but they did nothing. He also said I had post viral fatigue and that I would feel better soon but I didnt. I then started getting these random sharp pains that felt like they were coming from the bones, they only lasted a few minutes or seconds at a time and moving didn't seem to affect the pain but I got them atleast 20-30 times a day. They were usually in the right thigh, right wrist, various fingers (especially thumbs), sometimes the bottom of my feet and some other less frequent areas. I was told that they were growing pains and that they would just go away but they didn't. My local doctor didn't know what else to say so he sent me to a get some blood tests which he said were all fine and an MRI (because we have a family history of brain tumours) but that was all fine aswell. i then got sent to an oesteopath and she said that some of the vertabrats at the top of my back and neck were crushed together which could explain some of my simptoms so she released them all and I started to feel a little better. But the sharp pains, headaches fatigue and dizziness is all coming back again, I went the the oesteopath not long ago for a check and she said my back looks fine so it can't be that.
I really want to find out what it is before it gets too bad again as I've got my GCSE's to concentrate on this year.
I don't know if this helps but I'm normal height and weight for my age, have asthma and hayfever and have a family history of brain, breast, bowl cancer and leukemia.
No sarcastic comments please.
