Help! Anyone with similar symptoms?

Everything started when I was little. I had steep throat almost every two months for over a year. After my tonsillectomy, my health depreciated. I ran low-grade fevers, slept for 20 hours at a time, lethargic, joint pain, bone pain, sun sensitivity, stomach problems, very low iron, back pain when laying down, etc. I had weird bloodwork. My iron levels were low, I have an elevated sed rate, target cells. The sun makes me extremely tired and makes my bones and joints hurt so bad. My bone/joints get worse with activity, especially in the sun. I recently was hospitalized for blood in my stool. From all the tests, the only thing confirmed was a peanut allergy I unknowingly developed.

I am a 21 year old female. This all started when I was 13 or 14.

You might want to try a multiple-enzyme supplement from the health food store.  (I ran out and my stomach problems are back.)  As for low iron, it's best to get your iron from foods such as spinach, sunflower seeds, sweet peas and beef.   Essiac might help with the joint pain.  (I have Fibromyalgia and Essiac really helps me especially during the summer months when there is any dampness in the air).  I sincerely hope that these home remedies help you.  Let us know how you're doing.

It could be Celiac disease, although being out in the sun makes me feel great because Celiacs tend to be vitamin D deficient as well as iron deficient.  Surgery has been known to trigger Celiac disease.

I recommend you see an endocrinologist.
