I am an 18 year old female with a 2 year history of passing out randomly, severe headaches, nausea/vomiting and abdominal pain. I currently take Lexapro and Tri Prevafim. In the beginning, my neurologist diagnosed me with Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy and put me on meds. After seeing specialists and a normal EEG, I was taken off my meds which were causing me even more issues. Since, I have seen dr. after dr. trying to determine a diagnosis. Lately, it seems that the nausea/vomiting occurs multiple times daily, and the syncope spells occur all too often. Just recently, I was up all night with excruciating abdominal pain. I can barely do small tasks without feeling faint. This past week, my family practice doctor did a full blood work up on me to test for autoimmune, endocrine, celiac and other issues. Everything came back normal except cortisol which was ~ 40. My doctor agreed it was strange and that I do not fit Cushing’s clinically (very thin, lower b.p.). She has agreed to refer me for an echo and to the endocrinologist for further examination. I feel lost because each test/scan/lab shows nothing. MRI/CTs have all been clear. I just don’t know where to go from here. There are so many areas that could be affected-neuro, endocrine, cardio, etc.
