What causes low mood, low self esteem, anxiety and joints pain?
Welcome to HCM.
I have gone through your details. Sorry to hear that you are suffering from number of health issues. I understand your concerns.
Low mood, low self esteem, anxiety etc suggest that you are probably depressed. I mean, with so much health issues, anyone can be depressed.
You have number of drug allergies. But I think you have not been prescribed antidepressants. I would suggest that drug like sertraline (prescription drug) can help to lift your mood. It is a good drug with minimal side effects. Hopefully, you should get an allergic reaction to this.
Other than this drugs like lorazepam (prescription drug) can control anxiety.
Also, at this age, damage to small blood vessels of brain is common. This can cause sppech problems and low memory.
Since your concentration is impaired, this can also affect memory.
You can discuss about this with your GP. Hopefully he will listen to you and help you this time.
Feel free to discuss further if you have more queries.
Also with sertraline why would I need a drug allergic reaction?
How can I rule out T.I.A's? as first occasion left on sofa for 24 hours initially not aware of anything then gradually came out of it by being in a dark state not recognising my nearest and dearest, then coming round to be able to stand, then discovered memory problems and speech. memory declined after two further episodes in 2015 December and January 2016. December 2016 then had another turn memory even more impaired. Confusion is very paramount.
Thank you for you help
Sertraline should work.
Sorry for late response.
Loss of family could be a cause for your low mood. But the treatment for this would still be sertraline.
I mentioned about allergic reaction because you have so many drug allergies already. I did not mean that all other drugs would cause allergy. But just be careful while taking any drug (including sertraline, although it is not known to cause allergy).
The neurological symptoms which you are having can be because of TIA. The confirmation would be by MRI of brain. It will reveal the brain injury, if any.
Kindly consult your local doctor and discuss the above points.
If you have more queries, please feel free to ask.
Wish you well.
Can take B complex vegetarian.
Sorry for late response.
Vitamin B12 deficiency is usually uncommon.
But the injectable B12 is indicated if the deficiency is severe.
However, as you are allergic to albumin, you should avoid the injection.
I think B complex vegetarian supplement which you take, should be sufficient for you.
You can take dairy products if you are not allergic to them.
Hope this helps.
Wish you good health.
