Hi im 18, a women, and have been having problems for the past year that no one can seem to answer. I get really lightheaded when I stand too long and it feels like I can t breathe and i always seem really weak. I also have a very hard time falling asleep i usually can t get to sleep til after 1,2, and sometimes 3am and have to get up at 7 for work. IV had my blood tested they said it looks good but its everyday to where i have to sit down really fast or i feel like im going to pass out. I eat good and drink alott of water and i seem to be loosing weight or somehow my clothes got alot bigger.

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. I think the lightheadedness, breathlessness, loosing weight, and having back problems are related to your having low energy and not eating right with being stressed. Though there might be other causes for these symptoms you probably are working yourself way over your limits. You also have insomnia that needs to be treated. Please see a psychiatrist and explain your symptoms. I hope you fix an appointment as soon as you can.

I hope this helped and I wish you the very best. Take care!
