Is there something wrong with me?!

Posted , 3 users are following.

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

- Hyperactivity

- Get hot really really quickly!!

Medication I have been on are:

- Pizotifen

- Amatriptalyn

- Lanzoparol

- Propanalol

- Sumatriptan

- 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! sad

    Could be hormonal. Have you had your levels checked? Try taking vit b12, vitamin d and Omaga 3. You must have an infection with your nodes being swollen. Massage your neck and see a chiropractor as I did. Good luck

      My mum thought the say, however I've had it all checked. Ill look into the Vitamins for sure though! Would like to see a chiropractor but doctors in England take forever just to get an appointment, or where I am anyway (12 week wait)

      Thank you for your reply smile
