Detailed Answer:
Hi there,

I have gone through your medical history and understood your concerns.

Feeling pain in your shoulder might be related to muscular-skeletal problems (arthritis, muscular pain, etc.). Taking pain-killers together with local massaging with essential oils and applying warm compresses are highly recommended.

Being constantly fatigued and drowsy with sweating hands and cooler sides might be related to:
- thyroid problems: should run thyroid function test
- anemia: run complete blood work
- minerals deficiencies: should measure blood electrolytes

If everything is ok, should continue with taking vitamins, eating healthy and doing more physical activities. Being sociable, visiting friends or family can also help.

With regards to using Enalapril, can you please provide your bp readings or other cardiac tests you run for further evaluation?
Thank you!

Brief Answer:
Run other tests to exclude other health problems..

Detailed Answer:
Hi there,

I have gone through the lab reports you uploaded, and noted that your thyroid hormones were within the normal range.

At this point, I highly advise to run:
- complete blood work
- measure electrolytes level
as mentioned earlier to exclude other health problems.

Hope it helped!

Brief Answer:
Please provide all the EKG pages...

Detailed Answer:
Hi back,

Thank you for providing EKG report. Can you please attach all the EKG pages (with graphics). I need to have a look at the other part of the EKG as I need to analyze them myself.

From the partial report of your EKG, I noticed only sinusal tachycardia that should not be a problem. You need to reduce stress anxiety, start beta-blocker and take chamomile/valerian/aloe vera tea or supplement.

Thank you!

Brief Answer:
Control stress/anxiety...

Detailed Answer:
Hi back,

I am happy that your cardiac frequency have been normalized (up to 65-73). This is indicating that anxiety/stress is causing all the symptoms you are experiencing.

I advise to go on with controlling stress/anxiety. If cannot succeed through lifestyle and diet changes, then, should start a betablocker. I'd prefer atenolol as it carries less side effect as compared to others.

Hope it helped!
