    Unhappy Doctors canít find anything wrong and Iíve been sick for 4 months straight please hel

    Doctors canít find anything wrong and Iíve been sick for 4 months straight

    please help.

    Iím male, 18 years old, 180cm, 70kg/155lbs

    Iíve been experiencing heavy fatigue combined with and a horrible constant dizziness/foggy/flu like feeling for 4 months straight and it feels like itís never going to end, physical activity and stress makes it worse. Iíve been tested for mononucleosis several times all have come back negative.

    The fatigue and sick feeling in my head really make life dreadful and I struggle to keep up with school, family and friends. I used to train 6 days a week and was in great shape, however now I spend most of my time resting since being active makes me worse. I struggle to do anything productive since my head feels so awful and weird. The times I have tried to train or do something active I usually feel fine during the activity, however the days after I am struck with horrible fatigue, worsening feeling in head.

    I was prescribed antibiotics despite having no sign of infection, and it has only made me worse so far (I still have 3 days left of the treatment).

    Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to ask for more information too.

    Things I have tested and that have come back normal:

    Vitamins, minerals, testosterone, hemoglobin, crp, immune cells. I have also taken CT of my scull with no results, and been to a specialist in ear, throat and nasal infections he also found nothing.

    I have an appointment with an endocrinologist in February, and a Neurologist in April. However, this feels like an eternity to wait without knowing if they will find anything..

    Re: Doctors canít find anything wrong and Iíve been sick for 4 months straight please

    What you are describing sounds like either a neurological disorder or possibly something like Lymes- which does not appear to be tested for. Your neuro probably will test for it.

    I have MS and have similar feelings of fatigue- but my brother has Lymes and also has similar symptoms.

    A CT of the brain shows very little...an MRI will show tons more. I have a feeling you are in for a ton of tests once you see the specialists.

    I would call both of them and put yourself on the cancellation list in case someone cancels, maybe you can get in sooner? It is not unusual to have to wait months to see these types of specialists...once you are a patient, ALWAYS make appointments before you leave so that you have one booked (2-3 months out) in case you need it.

    Try to not be anxious as anxiety also doesn't help...try to get as much rest as you can- avoid getting overheated...that means tepid showers and easy on the working out- as heat can aggravate feelings of fatigue as well.

    Good luck! Let us know what you find out!

    I have been tested for Lymes, it was also negative. I'm using the public healthcare system here in Norway thatís why the wait is so long. I might have use private specialists in order to get a quicker assessment. I will take your advice and try to push for earlier dates, and try to get an MRI scan. Thank you for replying, it means a lot. Ill let you know if I ever find the cause

    I would suggest Lyme might be the culprit but not just any doc can help with testing and treatment of Lyme. Also, there is a high percentage of false negatives for LD tests. See if you can find an LLMD (lyme literate medical doc) in your area. Your blood should be sent to Igenex Lab in Palo Alto CA. LLMD's usually don't take insurance but many think it worth it to at least get properly diagnosed.

    LD gets worse and more difficult to treat the longer you wait to begin treatment so I would suggest ASAP.

    Wish you best with this.

    Tess
