I'm a teen. Firstly, i'm an insomniac. Never properly diagnosed, but most nights I struggle to fall asleep. And I wake up a lot too. Some nights I have gotten 2 hours sleep... But anyways, since I started secondary school aged 12, i've been getting sick more frequently. As a toddler I always had chest infections, but I was a very healthy child, never spent a night in hospital in my life. But this year especially i've been all over the place. I've come home sick 5 times, and have had 2 days off. People are beginning to think i'm faking it and relatives think I'm being bullied. I get diarrhea pretty often, 1-4 times a month (sometimes it'll last hours). So anyways, this school year:
September - Drowsy for a full week. Thursday had bad diarrhea, came home. Was fine, Friday, again came home.

Early October - Monday morning, floor was spinning, head pounding, ear sore. My parents were called to collect me. Thursday, diagnosed with an ear infection. Following Wed, antibiotics had no affect, it was still bad, causing bad tinnitus (I suffer from that too, from time to time). I got ear drops bla bla bla.
On Sunday night I vomited. Monday I had diarrhea and came home. Tuesday morning getting ready I vomited. And i've been really off since...

Help. I don't really tell my parents when I feel sick. And the dizziness, the room spinning, i've had a couple of times. I fell over in September with it, and in July I fell in my room and couldn't get up for a half hour! I never told anyone
