Always feeling ill, no energy, tired, nausea, dizzy, faint, and gaining weight fast. whats wrong with me?
Have all the above symptoms. I went 2 Dr. & he ran a glucose tolerance test. I got HORRIBLY sick in the process BUT my results came back normal. Ive always been a skinny girl ( im 21 years old) but here in the past 6 months ive gained weight rapidly no matter what i eat or how much i exercise. Im CONSTANTLY getting headaches EVERY DAY! i crave chocolate, sugar and meat like crazy. I sleep 8 or 9 hours a night yet i feel like i havent gotten any sleep at all. I sleep sound through the night though. Why am i craving sugar so much? My doctor seems to think i am just not eating healthy, i eat like i always have and from the time i was born till 20 i was perfectly healthy, in shape and everything. Now i feel like my whole body is shot down, Something is definately wrong. Why am i getting severe headaches everyday and why do i keep feeling faint and passing out when it gets close to meal times? Please help, i need advice. I feel so sick and weak. ( and no, i cant be pregnant) HELP!
Thanks for the replys.
To add to my ?, I have been on depression med (lexapro) for a year but over the past few months i have tried to get off of them, ive been takin the meds every other day and then started every 3 days and so on. I havent been depressed in a LONG time so i figured i didnt need the medicine anymore, and my dr said to slowly let myself off them like i am doing.
I have also been on birth control for about 4 years now. I was thinking yesterday that maybe i need to talk to my obgyn about the amount of hormones im taking in my birth control. Maybe they are too low for me since i am not a teen anymore.
I really do not know what the heck is going on with me but whatever it is it sucks.. All i can think about is going home and sitting in the dark and silence so my head will stop ringing and going to SLEEP!
Also, Why am i gaining so much weight? This is whats going to give me depression again. Ive gained 30 lbs in less than 6 months! I want to cry now!

You need to have some hormone tests ran, that sounds like its the problem. I havent done alot of studying into this, but what your describing does sound like a hormone imbalance, and it can be corrected with medication.

Have an endocrinologist check you out for Cushing’s syndrome, thyroid probs and hypoglycemia.
Have an OB/gyn check you out for PCOS.

You need to go back to your doctor and have him test you for diabetes. I know you said you already took a glucose test, but you may need to try it again. I’m telling you this because last year at this time I had all those symptoms and my doctor tested me for diabetes. She told me not to worry because i looked to healthy to be diabetic, but she was wrong. So getting it checked again probably wont hurt, and also start to exercise. I know you probably don’t have the strength to do it but just walking down the street will help you feel much better.
