Hello everyone. Male, turning 20 this year. For the past few years I have been suffering with chronic fatigue with severity on and off. This had affected me to quite a degree in my studies, causing me to drop out once as I couldn't cope with the unwellness as well as the anxiety. Saw several doctors over the course of the years, Neurologist, Gastroenterologist, etc. Done many blood tests, MRI(one done recently a few months back), found nothing and was told it was all in my head. I can't even fathom how is that even possible. Recently I had a bout of stomachache and diarrhea for 3 days, went to the ER yesterday. The doctor dismissed as anxiety and told me it's probably just in my head as I looked fine to him. I couldn't believe my ears. He didn't even seem to be taking me seriously as I was only 20. However to be fair I do have a record of anxiety disorders and depression in my medical history. However, it's true that I feel unwell... Where should I go to continue searching to alleviate my symptoms...? I'm lost...
Here are my list of symptoms:
Chronic fatigue(ranging from mild to severe randomly)
Random pains in muscles/joints sometimes
Impaired cognitive abilities, can't react to things in a normal speed, reacts really slow
Please, just any answer would be very much appreciated... I can't stand all these any much longer. It's affecting my social life and made me very much more depressed that I can't find the solution. I visit the therapist on a monthly basis, helps to an extent but ultimately the physical symptoms are not alleviated. Thanks for reading, any comments would be greatly appreciated! Could it be deadly disease?? I'm feeling really paranoid and worried about this... D:
