Question: Hi, Im a 45 year old male , decent shape. I love to exercise but I havnt been able to as much recently.I have been working a tremendous amount of hours(60 12hr nights in a row). anyway, for the last several years I find it very difficult to get "up and at em".Severe lack of energy-motivation, can't sleep, kinda more emotional, less muscle tone. I think I may be anemic. Have been more sick than usual. Anyway, for the last several days I have been having severe diarreah,kidney pain,chest hurts and my whole body is sore. I know that this a lot to take in, and I promise I'M not a hypochrondiac. Yoused to rarely get sick.. Thanks XXXXXX

Hi

Thanks for asking.

There can be multiple possibilities in your case:

Anemia
Diabetes
Thyroid Disorders
Mood disturbances
Work exhaustion

As you can see, there can be multiple reasons for your problem as the symptoms are quite vague. And they do not point towards a simple straight forward diagnosis.

Please consult your doctor. You probably need to go for complete blood count, sugar levels, thyroid function tests, ESR, and other specific investigations, if indicated in physical examination. Most of the above said conditions needs to be ruled out by examination and investigations.

I hope I have answered your query, I am available for follow up questions if needed.

Thanks.

All lab work came out good including X-rays So why is my heart skipping beats?

Hello I am 47 years old, with high blood pressure, I have recently been to the drs and have had some blood tests done and they came back that I have a sluggish kidney and am anemic, I am going to have a colonoscopy in a months time, since knowing this I have started to worry and I am having pains in my left side. I have over the years had piles which have been painful but I have treated them in the normal way, but I don't think I have lost blood to the extreme that I have now become anemic , being as I am 47 I have my concerns, but I have no family history of cancer

Small amt. of bleeding 6 wks. ago. Went to dentist as it was on pallet of my mouth-also thought maybe an ill fitting partial. Went 11 days ago as it got very heavy on bleeding. Could not eat . Have had liquids since. Dentist said possibly so about the partial and did 7 stitches and some glue I understand. Has not stopped, went back 3 days ago, dentist removed some glue particles and it has bled heavy ever since. He has been great to try and help, but to no avail. Still not eating. Losing weight and getting cupfuls of blood at anytime , even while trying to sleep. I am a man 87 yrs., good health, no prescrition meds. except Folgard and Doxazosin. Work hard all the time up until this happened. Take Folgard as I was anemic 10 yrs. ago and must always take this along with Vit. B12 shots. How can I get this bleeding to stop. At my wits end. Thank you.
