What does this general medical examination result mean?

Went to my doctor today for my yearly physical. He said I was fine and just ordered a routine blood test when I don t eat for 12 hours......when I got the after visit summary I got the below as the visit results. I suffer from anxiety and am freaking out, His office is closed now. I have seen all doctors for heart, stomach, prostrate, and lungs and just have to see them once a year. Why did he say I m ok but put this as the diagnoses for the visit?

Hi,

You need to calm down. As none of these disorders are anywhere causing you significant issue except for your chronic fatigue which is being triggered by your anxiety. You need to have a controlled prescription for very early signs of these diseases which may be normal variants with persons having any such family histories and these have not caused any problem as yet.

Also a regimen with anxiolytic therapy and pain killers and supplements as well as blood thinners can be helpful to control all your symptoms.

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

Wishing you a speedy recovery.

Regards,
Dr. Saddiq Ulabidin, General & Family Physician
