My Dear Child Do you have bad periods. Where is your back ground from? Have you talked to your parents? Do you drink water at all. If not you might be dehydrated. What are your doctors saying? The reason why I am asking you about your background is because there is a blood disorder that unless you ask for this test they will not do it and it comes from a place in Europe such as Italy. Greece, Spain, Etc. Its called Thalaciemia major or minor. Do not think I spelled it right but this blood type but it can be serious if you are not tested for it. You might also be growing to fast or not eating properly. You might also be lacking in protein or iron. My dear go to the doctor and have this looked at. Good luck. G.G.
