Jul 9, 2019 · Exhausted from digestive conditions in Digestive Health

I am a 17 year old female. I have been dealing with major lack of appetite. I have also been feeling nauseous but I never had thrown up from it. I feel sick when I don't eat and when I do eat, I end up feeling more sick. I have chronic fatigue syndrome and orthostatic intolerance. Any ideas of what this could be. I've been getting told by many to see a GI doctor. What types of test does the GI do to determine what an going on? Anything would be helpful! Thank you

May 5, 2019 · Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) Doctors in Just Want to Talk

I know someone who's looking for a doctor at the Mayo Clinic Rochester who specializes in ME/CFS. Looking at the website, all of them except one work in children and adolescents Pediatrics. I know adults can't make appointments with doctors in pediatrics. In some cases it would be nice! Does anyone recommend or know of any doctor that works with chronic fatigue syndrome at Mayo?!

I spoke with my POTS Specialist( Dr. Fischer) in the Children's Pediatrics Department at Mayo. My periods are horrible because I experience increased nausea(I already experience nausea everyday- my doctor prescribed me Zofran, which has helped a bit), I get headaches and migraines, but my period makes those more debilitating causing me to be out for the day. The first 3 nights, I get little to absolutely no sleep whatsoever because I feel so uncomfortable. I have enough trouble sleeping. Mhm symptoms just worsen!

I personally do not feel comfortable going into a Planned Parenthood due to personal reasons. I haven't met with the gynecologist yet, because I need to find a day where I can take off of school and find someone who would be willingness to drive me.

I just need to go to get birth control. There is nothing else wrong with my body, it's just increased symptoms from my chronic illness

I will be honest, I haven’t exactly spoken to her about this yet. I know that she is more compassionate and more willing when it comes to making adjustments and trying things to help my health. Honeslty for whatever reason I am just terrified of facing her and telling that I want this. It’s kind of hard to go up to your parents and be like..”I need birth control!”. I was gonna text her and tell her what’s going on! But her phone unfortunately broke, so I couldn’t text her my thoughts. My doctor told me to speak with the gynecologist about this! I just have to set up and appointment and get there somehow and get what I need without it showing up on insurance.

I am a 17 year old female with chronic fatigue syndrome and Orthostatic Intolerance! You guys have seen me around! I met with my doctor at Mayo two days ago! And we talked about birth control to help lessen my symptoms. The symptoms I experience with CFS and Orthostatic Intolerance Increase drastically during that time of the month. My mom is fine with me getting birth control but due to religious reasons my dad is against it. Due to those religious beliefs I know that despite how much me and my doctor push for it, he will not accept it . I have someone who could drive me to meet with the gynecologist at Mayo to get birth control. I am unable to pay for it out of pocket and insurance covers it for free. Is it possible to get it, without it showing up on bills or insurance things? And what form of birth control is best?

I am a 17 year old female with ME/CFS and Orthostatic Intolerance. I spoke with my doctor at Mayo about how horrible my periods were. He recommended that I saw an adolescent gynecologist. He said that he thinks that taking hormones will help( identical to “birth control”). So what exactly does he mean by taking hormones?
