Odd symptoms and no doctor belives that anything is wrong

I am fifteen years old, female, and have the following symptoms:
Involuntary Twitching / (what looks like a) Partial Seizure
Falling at random
Balance problems
Major depression*
Disthymia*
VCD*
Anxiety Disorder with features of obsession and panic disorder*
Chronic Back Pain
headaches that might be migraines
Aphasia
Nausea
Heartburn
symptoms with a * are diagnosed
My doctors say that it is all psychosomatic. They have done an EEG while I was sleeping, an EKG, and a couple of blood tests. I have been on Celexa aka citalopram for several months, my dose was recently upped to 25 miligrams. I was briefly on Abilify, however, that was after the twitching started. I have also taken Tums, Advair, FloNase, Prevacid, and omeprozole in the past 365 days
any ideas? any similar problems

Hi,

Most of the symptoms that you have can be due to anxiety and depression. I would suggest you to do some deep breathing exercises every day, be as physically active as you can and take help from a counselor or close friends and family to overcome anxiety and depression as you are still very young and capable of much more.
Good luck and keep us posted.

The balance problems and partial seizure looking things are what keep getting ignored.  You think -that's- caused by anxiety or depression?

Hi,

It is important to know if the EEG showed partial seizures or not because the post mentions involuntary twitching which looks like partial seizure.

Thanks

The EEG showed nothing. Perfectly normal, according to the doctor we saw.

Hi,

In that case the diagnosis of partial seizure is improbable. However it is difficult to comment without a good clinical exam. Your friend can try and get a copy of the EEG report and seek a second opinion.

Thanks
