One day in my high school PE class I started to feel a little strange. A weird vibrating feeling surged throughout my body and my heart start to beat rapidly (probably from anxiety). A few days later, my throat started to swell up and it felt like something was stuck in my throat. A few days after this, I starting to begin feeling a heaviness in my head and fever-like feelings (the reason I say fever-like is because of information that will be stated shortly). I soon found out that my tonsils were enlarged and began to feel fatigue as well. Another symptom that was really strange to me was that I would always feel like there was a lot of gas in my stomach, especially when I laid down to sleep.
I have seen doctor after doctor, primary care physician to specialist, ran numerous blood tests, urine tests, chest x-ray, checked for any kinds of infection, and nothing has been found to this day. It is about 5 years since I started having symptoms. I never have days where I feel completely normal then I feel sick again. My symptoms are present every single day. My temperature is always somewhere from 98 F to 100.5 F and I have never seen it exceed that range. Although my temperature is often in normal ranges, I still always feel like I have a fever on those days as well. I haven't travelled anywhere previous to feeling these symptoms or haven't engaged in unprotected sex. I checked for all kinds of conditions such as: mono, HIV, cancer, valley fever, and more.
I'm basically stuck feeling sick and there is no signs of anything being wrong with me besides the obvious sight of my tonsils being enlarged. My ENT recommends a tonsillectomy but I don't understand why that would do anything considering I don't have any signs of infection. If I missed out on any important information or anything please let me know. I am posting this to find out if anyone has had or knows anyone who has had similar symptoms, and what I should do to become better again. It's been a long five years and I am waiting patiently for all these different doctors to try to help me. (By the way, I RARELY have a sore throat. This makes me hesistant in getting a tonsillectomy even more.) If anyone could help or put any feedback it would be greatly appreciated.
