Brief Answer:
Probably anaemia, some investigations needed to help through the diagnosis

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I understand your concern.

Your symptoms can be related to many medical conditions.

I would suggest the following examinations to help me through the diagnosis.

1) A complete blood count to exclude anaemia because of iron deficiency.

2) Liver function test and Vitamin B-12 blood level to exclude vitamin B deficiency

If the above-mentioned results come okay, then I would also suggest a visit to a psychiatrist to exclude depression as a possible cause of your symptoms.

Meanwhile, I would suggest you use a daily multivitamin supplement.

If the anaemia is confirmed, then taking a regular iron supplement would be advisable.

I suggest to take over the counter option in case of vomiting such as Reglan 10 mg three times a day.

I suggest you take a healthy diet and do schedule for a check-up with your physician regarding the above-mentioned concerns.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.

I have been cleaning the garage and there was a lot of mold near the floor, could this maybe do something?
Answered by Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi 6 hours later
Brief Answer:
Yes, mold can also be a cause of your symptoms.

Detailed Answer:
Hi again dear,

Yes, mold can be the cause of your symptoms especially if the symptoms begin after the exposure.

An allergy test is needed to confirm this diagnosis.

I also recommend doing the examinations mentioned above to exclude other possible causes.

If the diagnosis of mold allergy is confirmed I suggest you to take antihistamines such as Levocetirizine 10 mg daily.

I suggest to avoid contact with the mold.

Use mask and gloves while cleaning and let doors and windows open for ventilation if needed.

Hope I helped you.

Take care,

Dr.Dorina Gurabardhi
