Hi Siyad,

You have multitude of problems which are unconnected to any particular system of the body. You might also have a generalized fatigue along with the above described ones. Is it?

Let me ask you few questions.

How many hours do you work per week?
How is your sleep ? Do you feel refreshed after a night's sleep?
Are you in an emotional relationship?
Are you sexually active? If yes, do you have problem in sexual life?
Do you consume alcohol? If yes, how much and how often?
Do you have the feeling of satisfaction and pleasure of life?
Did you ever have tendencies of suicide or self harm?

If the answers to the above questions 4 to 7 are yes, you better XXXXXXX a Psychiatrist as soon as possible. Early treatment of illness can help better your life.

Wish you Good Health.

Thanks for the reply .

As I mentioned earlier , your symptoms are unconnected to any particular system of the body .

I would suggest you must get a generalised examination done along with these tests furnished below

1. Complete blood count
4.Random blood sugar
5.Thyroid profile
7.Blood Urea and Serum Creatnine
8.Urine routine and micro scopy

By these tests andphysical examination and a check on blood pressure , we could think of ruling out conditions like diabetes , high/low blood pressure, thyroid dysfunction , anemia , infection ,etc which are common causes of tiredness , sleep changes ,generalised weakness , etc.

A GENERAL PHYSICIAN (M.D MEDICINE) would be the right specialist for the examination and tests.

If these reports turn out to be normal, then you must see a psychiatrist for anxiety , which may be the cause for he above symptoms.

I suggest you to cut down on intake of coffee, tea and aerated drinks , especially 6 hours before bed time. try yoga , meditation and brisk walks , they will keep you active .You may also take multivitamins like Tab.Diacobol Plus one tab a day for 3 months.

Hope I answered your query.

Wish you good health
