I am 14 years of age. Suddenely out of the blue in june 2014 i started developing dizziness off balance sensations headaches loss of appetite. I went to the doctors for testing and nothing was wrong. I woke up many days absolutely exhausted like id done a marthon and in the middle of the days it happened also just bouts of extreme fatigue. I couldnt concrete, breathlessness I had vertigo(sudden falling sensations) tensions headaches, shaking, temperature changes(too cold or too hot with chills)Joint pain, facial numbness . These are only SOME symtoms.I had leg weakness like I was walking on trampolines. i have had this varying each day for months. I went to the ENT and I got my ears unblocked which subsided some of the vertigo but I still get off balance sensations. One time At the beginning of the new year I had a very uneasy stomach I felt like I couldnt eat rich foods, I couldnt eat I felt extremely nauseous so i headed to the doctors. They said I had a possibly of celiac , I had testing and it was negative. a couple weeks later I felt like eating healthy(no apprant reason) I swapped baked goods for fruit and vegetables and This carried on for two weeks, I still ate gluten but not as much as I usually would, I realised i feel so much more energized and I complety forgot about my symptoms. Do I have gluten intolerance??!!, I would do anything for a answer. Thankyou cry cry

Did you ever get tested for Lyme with The coinfection Babesia ( either Microti or Duncani) ? Those can definitely cause those symptoms you described.

Lucy, have you started your period yet? Whether you have or have not, it might be helpful for you to use a blank calendar and record how you feel every day for a couple of months.

Hormonal cycles affect us in many ways, and often you can see patterns in appetite and energy that correspond to your menstrual cycle. This is totally normal.

I think charting your menstrual cycles and your complaints about energy levels, dizziness etc. will be very helpful for you.

Since your mom has PCOS, you should know that this syndrome often comes with insulin resistance. People with PCOS do a lot better in general if they follow a low carbohydrate diet. You should probably learn about how to do that, too.

Gluten intolerance is not something easily uncovered. I would encourage you to continue following a low carb diet and not worry about gluten specifically. And chart your issues along with your menstrual cycle!
