Mia, I wonder if two years after your post you are still reading this thread, and I hope you're feeling better! It's so very hard for anyone to accurately say what might be the cause of your health problems with just a little information - even though you've done a fabulous job of describing what is going on with you. I don't disagree with the others who suggested looking into PCOS, though if your hormones were properly tested, your testosterone and insulin levels would be abnormal in PCOS usually. As a naturopathic doctor for 16 years, I have seen many women and girls whose systems get very out of balance when they have amenorrhea (no period.) And amenorrhea is a result of an hormonal imbalance, which by itself can cause many of your symptoms, even in cases where it doesn't cause amenorrhea. One of the most common types of hormonal imbalance is PMS, premenstrual syndrome, which can cause several of the symptoms you mention: acne, depression, migraines, moodiness, and changes in appetite. You can learn more about PMS at my website, http://www.pmscomfort.com. The reason I mention it is that I've seen many women in whom all symptoms of hormonal imbalance resembled PMS, and when a natural health program was able to bring their hormones into balance, all their symptoms got better, regardless of the name of the condition. Best of luck to you!
