Detailed Answer:


Thank you for asking on HCM!

I passed carefully through your past medical history, and understand your concern. Your health problems have placed you on a very embarrassing situation, where you have to see so many doctors. From the other hand, your several medical implications (cardiac and other systemic) has affected your daily functional status, as well as your psychological domain.

My answer to your question is: Yes! For sure, that all chronic health problems do cause fatigue, as well as depression.

My advice is to keep consulting with your psychiatrist, as managing your aggravated psychological status, is a major issue for gaining your tranquility, and improving adherence to your recommended cardiac and other medications (which are of utmost importance).

You don't have to be discouraged by any indiscretions when providing you explanations about your medical status and life expectancy.

The most important aspect of life is to have the proper mental strength to deal with our uncertainties, and achieve the right choices for a better physical and psychological quality.

I recommend you to continue periodic check ups by your trusted attending doctor.

Hope to have been helpful to you! Greetings! Dr. Iliri
