I am 55yr old having chronic fatigue, alopecia , degenerative disk disease with nerve damage . What treatment should I take for acne and tiredness ?

I am 55yr. old female.I weigh between 125-130. Height is 5 5. I have been post menopausal for 10 yrs. I have chronic fatigue, alopecia ,degenerative disk disease with nerve damage. I take zolft and wellbrutin. I have been with acne as a teenager and into early adulthood. For the past 2 years I have acne on the chin basically but within the past year it is on check,forehead, nose. It can be cystic ,or just regular pimple. When one is almost gone 1-2 new ones come out. I m told that it is from stress and hormones. It is truly frustrating at any age. I thought by now I would have clear skin , since I feel that is one of the benefits being post menopausal. I also have dryness on some of my chin. I am a vegetarian by choice and within the past year more vegan. rarely I ll eat fish and eggs are organic only eaten in something. Never by itself. I have been getting headaches more often and I m tired and I don t feel like doing anything.I m doing things mechanically. Could this come from mold ,not exclusively. I m also a caretaker. What do you suggest regarding the acne and tiredness , no feeling to do anything.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum
the tiredness and "lack of go" feeling is due to post menopausal changes. usually it binds up within 6 to 8 years but in your case its for more than 10 years. so i think you can go visit a psychiatrist. he will give you mild doses. later on you can switch off. for acne please visit a good skin specialist to undergo proper antiboitic treatment. if already taken without any result then please try homeopathy for acne. it has excellent result.
take plenty of fruits and liquids. divert your mind in some good activities like sports, meditation, hangouts, reading etc. i suppose once your hormonal balance is achived the acne problem will also be solved.
I hope I answered your query. Wish you good health.

Thanks for query,
It seems that these all problems are due to Manopausal syndrome.
Due to hormonal imbalance during this period cause all problems you mentioned.Depression is one of them.
You require hormonal treatment.
Consult gynec and seek his advice,
Attend Manopausal clinic and go for counseling.
Ok and bye.
