13 Year old daughter with loads of symptoms

Postby AJAJ » Wed Apr 25, 2007 12:32 pm

My 13 year old daughter has the following symptoms Help! Joint pain, dizziness, muscle pain, fatigue, chest pains that are relieved when she leans forward, and one blackout? What can be causing it all

She's not on any medicine, she's never had any operations or major illness, the only thing that I can think of is that she had a tickbite 2 years ago.

All her symptoms are relatively non-specific. If these symptoms have all recently started I would be suspicious of a viral infection such as with Epstein-Barr virus. If you live in the southwest, valley fever is a definite possibility.

Rheumatologic diseases (such as systemic lupus erythematosis) are possible but less likely.

I would suggest you discuss her symptoms with her pediatrician to get some testing done. Valley fever and EBV can be tested for with a blood test. Screening tests such as a CBC will also be helpful.

Best wishes.
