    Suggest treatment for fatigue, indigestion and headaches

Posted on Thu, 27 Jul 2017 in Thyroid Problem and Hormonal Problems
Question: Hi, I don't feel well and my doctor keeps telling me to follow up next year. I have had high calcium for 2 years. I have extreme fatigue, occasional nausea, indigestion, headaches, high pressure, trouble sleeping. These symptoms have been going on for at least two years, but they have been minor. However, they are really beginning to interfere with my quality of life. I am female, 52, in menopause, use an estrogen patch (had hysterectomy), take Efflexor XR, Adderall, pindolol.

I believe that we have already done many of these tests. I have uploaded them.

I don't believe that my doctor ordered a thyroid panel.

I have no unusual stress or anxiety.

I am active, eat a healthy nutritious diet.

My BMI is 19.5. I only drink alcohol moderately.

However, these symptoms are past bothersome and now interfere with my quality of life.
