I have no idea what it might be though.

It should be anemia.. coz when you are anemic you tend to have reduced red blood cell count than normal... hence oxygen supply to the brain is reduced that's where you feel giddy and weak.. you just need to check your haemoglobin levels and take lots of iron containing food like dates... Cause of anemia is lower iron level which is necessary for haemoglobin HB and hb carries oxygen to different parts of the body, hence your whole body tend to feel weak..
No 19 year old has acute leukemia for years on end.
Chronic leukemias are virtualy unknown in this age range.
Whatever you have, it is not acute myelogenous or lymphocytic leukemia.
We would need a complete medical history and physical examination and a complete blood count and a look at your peripheral blood smear to hazard an accurate medical guess.
Your primary care physician is the best person to answer this question.
