Probably anaemia, some investigations needed to help through the diagnosis
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.
Yes, mold can also be a cause of your symptoms.
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.
