What causes chronic fatigue?
Now I have insurance, is there any test that you would sugest.
Following tests recommended...
I have gone through your medical history and understood your concerns.
You may ask the doctor to run the following tests:
- whole blood work: to exclude anemia or other blood related problems
- fasting blood glucose and measuring the levels of insulin in blood
- pancreas/liver/kidney function tests
- thyroid profile
- urine analysis
- examination of stool for ova/parasites
- vaginal swab testing
- abdominal ultrasound
- measuring the electrolytes and vitamins in blood
- EKG, cardiac echo
Depending on the tests results, specific treatment strategy will be prescribed. Your doctor would ask to run other tests after physical examination.
To my opinion, from what you are describing, being fatigue might be related to:
- work overload/anxiety
- not taking enough nutrients (not consuming healthy foods/drinks)
- lack of physical activity
- consumption of alcohol/smoking or other drugs
- medications (sleeping/anxiety pills) you might be taking
Hope it helped! Let me know if I can assist you further!
