Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

I would like to have more details about how you are feeling.Do you get any fever ?Over how many months did you lose 10 pounds ? I advise you to visit your Physician and get examined for any underlying cause of these symptoms.I advise you to get a thyroid profile done.

Hello - Logged into my Aunt s account... she has been having severe nausea since December - lost 30+ pounds - weighs 90.1 pounds. Husband died in december... could be stress or unresolved issues. Bouts of lower back pain, leading to nausea, to dry heaves, to ER getting fluids and zofran iv. Weeks ok in between...now is almost constant nausea depending on what she has eaten. Anti depressant Paxil --- now changed to reme??? She has a bad metallic taste in her mouth... trying to insure she still eats but is difficult. Gastro tests all ok (no colonoscopy yet) Gall bladder, scans, no abdominal aortic anurism. Has Bladder recon from 2003. Gastro says NO nor allergies? How do they know??? I am ready to insist on allergy referal. What else? She cannot lose any more weight!

I am 26 years old. Female. & have a couple concerns. Fr a little while now I have been extremely tired. Several months. With that I have EXTREME constipation like 10-20 days with no BM. Also I have gained about thirty pounds in a matter of two months and cannot seem to get it off. I have dark circles under my eyes as well. I have not had a cycle in over two months. I am not pregnant. I had blood work down to look at my thyroid and the TSH was 1.82. My primary said that was normal. My WBC was 4.3 and the RDW was 11.4%. Also my ast 33 and alt 32. I am really tired of being so tired. I generally run a high pulse in the 100s. Can sleep all day. Lately I have developed headaches in the evenings. Three years ago I had a child via cesarian because my blood pressure was too high (don t know I that s relevant)! I just want some help and my doctor doesn t seem to care. Also I supposively have adult ADD. Which I guess contributes to my forgetfulness which is worse as well. Thank you!(also heart disease, cancer, hypertension, thyroid disorders. Are in family hx)

Thanks!I am very tired today and feel like I would like to go to bed....which I never nap in the day. I take blood pressure meds and just took my blood pressure. Not bad. 103/62 with a 65 pulse. I have my own wrist gauge, and an excellent blood pressure program which I log my pressure maybe every other day or so. Gives my doc wonderful readings over a month, 6 months, etc. if he needs them. I have had the band calibrated. Why am I soo tired. I have a cat that is 22 and has hyper-thyroid and that depresses me badly.
