flu like symptoms



I'm 16 years old and I have been having weird symptoms for the past 2 months.  I have juvinile arthritis, seasonal asthma, and ADD, but I do not think they're related to my unknown sickness. first it started with shortness of breath and a pounding and racing heart.  I began to develop flu like symptoms such as chills, nausea, heavy head and face and a stiff/heavy neck, and heat flashes.  I have EXTREME fatigue, even if I get hours of sleep.  everytime I am laying down and I stand up, I blackout for about 7 seconds.  the cardiologist said to drink more water, I did, but the blackouts till happen everyday.  ill wake up in the morning and feel fine, but still very tired.  then in the afternoon I begin to have the flu like symptoms again.  this has been going on for almost 2 months and I have no idea what's wrong with me. my doctor put me on antibiotics for a sinus infection but that wasn't it. I've had several blood work done, EKG tests and x-rays, but everything comes out normal. does anyone have any suggestions or ideas? please help

Have they checked your thyroid function?
