What Causes Extreme Fatigue Along With Headaches And Racing Thoughts?

My boyfriend presented with extreme fatigue, headache and racing thoughts last Saturday. Racing thoughts have subsided and little but extreme fatigue and muscle weakness is not improving. Muscle weakness in legs is getting worse. He went to the doctor, but they said it is probably a virus, he also got a blood test done for Lyme disease. We are very worried

Hello,

The headache, muscle pain are symptoms of viral infection. So you can investigate him with full CBC to check for presence of lymphocytosis.

Paracetamol can be prescribed SOS for his symptoms.

If fatigue is since long time than I suggest him investigate with sgpt, sgot estimation, urea, creatinine estimation, serum calcium estimation, hemoglobin estimation, serum TSH estimation for primary work up.

Hope I have answered your question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
