What can be the cause of all these?

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hey everyone,

I'm 17 years old and I've been having some problems lately that I thought were normal. But now, with the suggestion of a friend, I decided to ask about it.

- Occasionally I have twitches that can go from a randomly moving finger to my whole body jerking. This one time in class I half-jumped from my chair and I was the laughing stock for quite a while.

- Especially for the last few months I noticed clumsiness. My hands usually shake and my handwriting has gone worse (though I can't say it was ever good). There's also a loss in talking skills, often I stutter a lot or forget what I was going to say in the middle of a sentence. It's annoying, really.

- Sometimes (even right now) I have trouble keeping my head up, literally. My head feels like a burden on my shoulders and I end up placing it on a pillow. I doubt physical weakness causes this because I have a good amount of muscle on me.

- I'm always sleepy and always tired. Even between the sets at gym I'd yawn. I don't sleep too little, in fact I oversleep sometimes. It seems regardless of how much I sleep I'll always wake up exhausted and with black circles.

- This is probably just a puberty thing, but I noticed my behaviour has also been changing lately. I quickly get angry, and not necessarily rationally. I've been arguing extra with my girlfriend lately because of that. She thinks I make irrational decisions, and sometimes she's even right.

- Sunlight feels repulsive for about a year now, or brightness in general. I love night and cloudy weathers. Think this one's called sensitivity to light.

- Oh and also - this is the most important one. Sometimes I feel like I'm dying, my vision blurs slightly and my breathing gets heavy. I usually go to bathroom and rub my face with water for a short while and it goes away...mostly. 

- I also, for the lack of a better word, "feel" my brain, kind of like a headache but constant. It's like a watered down version of headache, though it gets intense sometimes.

Now these all may be normal, or simply a mental disorder, I just want to know if there's anything I should know.

I can answer any questions required for further diagnosis.

Sorry for the long post. Thanks in advance.

    this is a diffitcult one because these symptoms can be linked to many many conditions ,no ones going to be able to tell you for sure whats wrong, on hear

    i really think you need to see a doctor . 

    to get to the bottom of this .

    it could be something serises and a delay could be costly .on the other hand it might just be something simple to put right and you ccould be worring about nothing .

    book that appoinment now you need to see someone  right a list of symptoms before you see your gp ,so you dont forget anything , they dont mind if you do this. but please get it sorted soon.

    Good advice from Tina and Jenny, Matt. Please see a doctor to get to the bottom of these symptoms. They're quite a grab bag so you need professional input. As Tina says, might be nothing but if these are symptoms of something serious, soonest seen to, soonest mended.

    whilst waiting for your appointment....start taking magnesium....you can get it in a spray...address your diet....no GMO's ie avoid corn, soy, gluten, and avoid all cereals, only eat fermented dairy, or avoid it too.  Focus on organic VEG, salad, organic meat and bone broth, make veg smoothies using coconut cream....very tasty, fry with only coconut oil ....and explore vitamins and minerals....keep a journal of how you feel...especially of any improvements.

    look up de-tox diets. look up paleo 


    love mary x

      thanks marey i would have suggested the magneisuim and the coconut oil but i didnt want him to do this instead of booking the doctors appointment , i am so glad that there are like minded people out there i feel alone with my alternative ways . so glad you find them useful to .

      magneisum is such a incredable minerl i am back using the spray daily and have found a very big improvement in my pain and stiffnes and sleep pattern .  have you looked in to colloidal gold supplement it is an amazing product .  the doctors for me are always the last port of call for me , but with serious symptoms like above you cant take chances.

      great you're back on the mag...well done. i've got a spray too plus vit e oil and b12 oil....so at least don't have to swallow those..... but have got a full regime..nec to take as even our soil is deficient....so imposs to be well nourished without help!

      hey matt....hope you're doing ok...any news?

    Thanks everyone for your time and input.

    I went to a neurologist today, as some of you suggested. She suspected a B12 deficiency, although I doubt it honestly, because I eat a lot and maintain a overall healthy diet.

    However she told me to give blood for further examination. Next monday or tuesday I'll go again to see if it's just some vitamin deficiency, or is there anything more to it. I'll be sure to keep you all updated.

    Again, thanks a lot for the suggestions!

    maybe you should see a neurologist to get to the bottom of the headaches and twitches.  It must be very embarrassing for you in class. I hope the situation improves.
