I'm so sorry this is going to be such a long post!
I will start with some basic information about me.
I am 18 years old, currently in full-time college. I live in England and I am a female!
Back when I was around 15, I had a knock to the head and this started chronic daily headaches.
I have had blood tests for EVERYTHING and I still have frequent ones to make sure nothing has changed and everything is coming back normal.
I have had an MRI, again came back normal.
I started to become very tired about a year ago and thought it was to do with little sleep, so I now get about 8 hours sleep a night and it hasn't changed anything. Some days I have to leave college early due to either the severe headaches or I'm too tired to stay awake despite getting enough sleep, food, and drink.
I then had tonsillitis in June last year (2015) It cleared with a course of antibiotics. It then kept coming back within about 4 times until September.
Now ever since I have had swollen tonsils and a swollen gland which is about 2 - 3cm and hasn't gone down since (It's now March!)
I went to the ENT specialist the other day and without even feeling my swollen lymph node in my neck, she could already see it when I lifted my head.
She felt it and said it was quite big, and requested an urgent ultrasound and biopsy injection within the next 4 weeks.
Here is a list of all the symptoms and other symptoms I am experiencing which I haven't said above are:
- Chronic Headaches/Migraines
- Tired 24/7
- Tingling, aching, sharp pains around body
- Swollen Neck Lymph Node since June 2015
- Depression/Anxiety - I was sexually abused when I was 7 (Depression also runs in the family)
- Balance Problems
- Muscle Aches
- Chest pains which come and go
- Hair falls out a lot compared to years ago
- Irregular Periods
- Get hot really really quickly!!
Medication I have been on are:
- Topiramate - Made me faint
All of these medications made me really hyper and I was always getting the side effects rather than the benefit from the actual medication!
I have also been taking B2 and Magnesium for about half a year.
For my headaches, I have had Botox type A twice which has not helped at all!
If anyone knows what is happening to me I'de be so so greatful, I'm so lost right now from all this!
