My son is a 16 y.o. and runs Cross Country. He started out well during the preseason and felt like this was going to be a great year. In the last few weeks he has complained of overall fatigue, he had a swollen lymph node under his neck, and a poor appetite. After numerous test everything is fine. He has been released back to full duty. He has complained while running he gets cold. This had never happened to him before and I was wondering if there could be an explanation. He is so discouraged because he can't make his times and and he feels so bad for letting his team down.

Did they check his thyroid when they did the other tests?

Yes they checked his thyroid and that was OK.
