I live in MN about an hour away from Mayo Clinic and I am a 19 year old female. I began having life altering symptoms in January 2018. These include fainting with lightheadedness, dizziness, high heart rate, neck pain and stiffness, brain fog, fatigue that doesn’t go away, thyroid problems, condylar resorption in my jaw, weight gain, and daily headaches. I am unable to function mainly due to the fatigue, dizziness, and pain. I can’t work (and trust me I want to) and have become majorly dependent financially and in other ways on others. I explained this all when I requested an appointment for mayo, I have no referral but I was told I didn’t need to have one for internal medicine. I have no diagnosis with my doctors where I am and truly believe I can expedite getting a diagnosis and shorten my suffering if I can get an appointment at mayo. Seeing that my appointment request was rejected twice now is disheartening. I just want to be given a chance to discontinue the constant suffering I have daily. I would like any advice on how to get an appointment if anyone knows, thank you.
