I don't know that anyone here can really offer a diagnosis...because we aren't doctors, but I would suggest that if you feel that badly you try and find another doctor and ask for a comphrehensive blood work-up to be done.

Anemia is an option with some of those symptoms, but it isn't that common in a male your age. Is there any reason you can think of that you might be anemic? Are you a vegetarian? Have you ever been diagnosed with Crohn's or Colitis or do you have any bleeding disorders?

From what I know (YMMV) anemia in an 18 year old male is fairly uncommon, and unfortunately so many of the symptoms can be related to so many different things it can be hard to say. That being said, if you had a good blood work-up done, it should pick up on anemia (or possibly uncover something else that might be the reason you feel bad).

Are you in the UK? Some of the terms you used made me wonder. I'm not sure if they call it the same thing over there...but since you are a bit younger...I wonder if maybe you might have mono? Just a thought...

Hope you feel better soon!
