Hi. It is very common to present with atypical symptoms in this age group. If all your investigations comes out to be normal and you are able to play well and able to enjoy everything than it is just a somatic complain which can be ignored. But if your symptoms persist or you have any change in mood and Enjoyment level and have stressors you may need to get evaluated for depression as these can features of it
Depression with somatic complaints is common in this age group.
Need detailed evaluation by a psychiatrist for this
Take care
