Question: hello, lately I have noticed muscle soreness in my back and some joint pain. eye twitching, fatigue, some dizziness.usually when working. I work a physical job 5 days a week 8 hours a day and I'm 30. I was currently diagnosed with stage 3 rosacea, dermatitis. I am on protopic and myocilin. that might not be connected, but I figured it's relevant. I would like to figure out what's wrong as it's becoming difficult tiki work efficiently. thank you

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for your question.
There are many causes for your symptoms. It can be from anemia, stress, sleep problems, thyroid problems or other conditions. I will give you some things to try and if it does not get better in a few weeks then see a doctor for an exam and some blood tests. Make sure you are drinking at least two liters of water daily. More if you are working in heat. Avoid alcohol and caffeinated beverages like coffee, tea or colas because they can make you dehydrated. Cut down on sugars and starches in your diet because they can make you tired (starches are bread, pasta, potatoes and rice). You do not have to get rid of these in your diet, just eat less of them. Make sure you get at least 8 hours of sleep at night. Take a multivitamin/multimineral supplement daily.
I hope you are feeling better soon,
