    Hi Dylan,

    Firstly, like I say to everyone on here, don't just go around the internet websites on health, reading symptoms about numerous disorders then thinking that you have similar issues. If I did that I would be lost in a huge wave of disorders, with the amount of symptoms I have. Think of my disorder - it took many Professors and Consultants in Neurology to diagnose all my problems and come to a final result, and I had to meet USA Professors as well as English Specialists, this in itself took nearly 2 years. Granted back then we did not have the internet back then, so you could not go around looking for people with similar conditions.

    Just looking at your list of symptoms, that could easily be put down to what I have, but I have much severe cases of symptoms.

    Delayed reactions of symptoms is how mine started, when I was just 22 years old, now I'm 51 and rely on my wife 24/7.

    Judging by what you have said I would think it is a Neurological disorder, but that covers a massive list of disorders. In my case I have 4 main problems, all of which have a common denominator, the Nerve System. Yet, one of my disorders as 28 variations. So you can see why you need to see a specialist to diagnose you.

    Your GP (General Practitioner) might know what is wrong with you, but in most cases GP's have a limited overview of many illnesses and disorders, therefore they would probably refer you to a Neurologist Consultant.

    And like Winnie stated, you can make a problem worse by stress and anxiety, so book an appointment ASAP to see your doctor, if you're not happy then get a second opinion. Either way I wish you luck.

    Wow you are really young for all of these problems. I am in my thirties and dealing with my own health issues. First thing i did was got all my family medical history from both sides of the family. Let your doctor know if any grandparents or siblings have anything. This is very important. It was for me. Make sure you go to a differant doctor if your not satisfied. I have heard alot of people with back and neck can go to a chiropractor and they will give u advise. They dont just do adjustments. They actually check you out. Try it. I hope you get the help you need. Keep in touch!!

    Hi Dylan,

    Sorry to hear that. Please check a neuro specialist. But also get your blood check for phosphorus and calcium. It seems your phosphorus levels may be high while your calcium levels too low for sustenance.
