Re: Scared im dying...only 17

see a doctor... the best you can do...

i'm sure that you're not dying... and if you have constant thoughts about death... maybe talk to a therapist or someone of that nature... might help out... get checked out none-the-less... stress... depression... any number of things can make you feel terrible and like your [physically... and mentally at times...] falling apart...
take care

Re: Scared im dying...only 17

Simple solution - go to a doctor.
Are you the type of person who hears about a disease and thinks they might have it? A hypochondriac maybe?

Re: Scared im dying...only 17

Sounds like you should see a doctor, but I would actualy recommend you see a bio-chemist. Those people are amazing. They can look in your eyes, and tell you whats wrong with you. My one fixed my mother's liver problem and my brothers problems.

You shouldnt have to worry about such things, especially if you cant know for sure what it is.
You could even have hypocondria (i cant spell it sorry), where you worry and think about a particular sickness so much, your convinced you have it.

Re: Scared im dying...only 17

I'm not sure but can 17 year olds have MS? Either that or your back is out of alignment and pitching nerves and causes muscle tightness/spasms and the "electric shock" feelings. But I would suggest going to your doctor. If you don't know what it is, no need to worry, stress does not make anything get better anyways. Actually stress could even cause the health problems..

Re: Scared im dying...only 17

You should definitely see a doctor.

You may have Fibromyalgia. Patients with fibromyalgia usually ache all over, sleep poorly, are stiff on waking, and are tired all day. They are prone to headaches, memory and concentration problems, dizziness, numbness and tingling, itching, fluid retention, crampy abdominal or pelvic pain and diarrhea, and several other symptoms.

Do a search on the internet for "Fibromyalgia". You will find many websites as this affects about 2-4% of the population, but the diagnosis is often missed. There is also a topic about Fibromyalgia here on the healthboards.

Another thing that I think is possible is "Thoracic Outlet Syndrome". My mother has this condition, and it happens more freqently in females. Are you sensitive to cold weather and feel more comfortable wearing thick clothing? Have been in a car wreck or do you play an instrument? Do you find it difficult to do normal everyday tasks like grating cheese that was once easy?

Re: Scared im dying...only 17

would you people stop giving this kid ideas about what he could possibly have? my guess, and i would put money on it, is that it's all in his head. if it isn't..with all the aches and pains..just sounds like he needs a new mattress to sleep on.
a good therapist might help too.

if you haven't seen a doctor already, then whatever is bothering you must not be that bad.

Re: Scared im dying...only 17

Hey Kev. Have you seen a doctor? If so, what did he/she tell you? If, after all this time, they can't give you answers then GET ANOTHER DOCTOR. I know guys who are afraid to go to the doc cause they'd rather not know what's the matter. I hope that's not you cuz that's incredibly stupid. I recently had a major operation and it sucked. But it was my doc who found something that very well could have killed me if not found early. Please don't make the mistake of not knowing when you could. Let us know how it's going.
