Dizzy on and off, pain in parts of head. PUBERTY?

Resolved Question:

I have not been feeling 'myself' for the past 5weeks. I have have been dizzy on and off and sometimes get pains in various parts of the head at different times. I have chest pains and my jaw also hurts periodically and also get pains in my wrists elbow and thighs. I have also notice some shaking in the fingertips. I am 14 and am wondering if this is serious or just maybe puberty.

Thank you for your medical query at DoctorSpring.com
So briefly, you have dizziness, headaches, chest pain, pain in the jaw, and pain in the wrists and thighs.
This could all indicate anemia, and could be a result of fatigue. These symptos have got nothing to do with puberty.
I will advise you to get the following tests done and rever back:
CBC with ESR
LFT, RFT, Serum Electrolytes,
Urine Routine
This looks like an extensive list, however, these tests wil give us an idea of your overall health.
Hope this was helpful,
Dr. Jay

Is this urgent. I have an appointment at the GP on thursday the 16th, is there anything I could do to stop the condition worsening and I have developed stomach rumbling (sounds like water pouring out of a bottle or makes a high pitch) is this a symptom.

Expert:  Dr. Jaydeep Tripathy replied 3 Days.

It's not urgent, however the stomach rumbling does indicate a stomach infection and it is better if you can initiate treatment for the same.
A good choice antibiotic would be Tab. Ciprofloxacin 500 mg twice daily for 3 days. You can also take probiotic supplements to aid the digestion process.
Hope this was helpful,
