Hi,

Fatigue is a common symptom that follows bleeding in the brain. The treatment is to check and make sure there are no other contributing factors that can be corrected such as thyroid disease, anemia, or electrolyte deficiencies. Sometimes this symptom remains for weeks or months following the...

Welcome to HCM.
It looks to be generalized weakness due to multi vitamin,iron deficiency after heavy period.
Go for routine investigations to confirm the diagnosis.
Weight gain should be ruled out by thyroid profile.
Start B12,folic acid,calcium,minerals,l-carnitine and other supplements....

hi, i have been feeling dull pain in my stomach for a long time, the doctor gave omeprozol to treat ulcer, but it's been a year , and the symptoms are the same, lately i have bad smelling gas, loose stools, and extreme tiredness. im 33 year old women.

doctor1 MD

It was wise though to go for a trial of omeprazole but the chronicity of the symptoms you described favors more towards Giardiasis. In my opinion you should screen for giardiasis and bacterial overgrowth syndrome but don't panic, both conditions can be cured. For instance proceed with stool R/E,...

Hi, I m a 50 year female. I ve been experiencing pain in the lower left side of my body, sometimes it s difficult to walk. I m also experiencing pain under the left arm, great fatigue, bloating, and a little spotting of blood (I no longer menstruate). Any ideas? Thank you.

doctor1 MD

I was released from the emergency room on Friday - unable to walk with shooting pains down the front of my calves - body will freeze in position and right arm will turn into a claw- I breathe and then I am able to walk. The longer the distance from car to back of dept. store all mobility stops. Blood pressure is irregular and increases with pain. Right outer leg is numb - excessive fatigue. Joint pain in ankles in am throbbing pain in arms this is intermittent. Memory is as if I no longer have a filter for my thoughts. Right leg spasmed for about 30 seconds for no reason. Have been having balance issues in the past and dizziness - walk to right of wall. Also within the last 2 weeks all is getting worse. When fatigued I walk as if I am 90 years old. I am a 48 female non-smoker. I have been to numerous doctors - all test come back normal and they comment this is interesting but have no idea what is wrong with me. I have constant pain in my hip region - very tight. At the emergency I had a CAT scan and full blood work all is normal. I had a shooting pain in the back under the left shoulder blade which caused blood pressure to elevate to 212/110 as the pain subsided so did the blood pressure. I check blood pressure daily usually around 132/78 or lower. If I am in pain the blood pressure goes up. Any suggestions?? Denise

My doctor thinks I have adrenal fatigue or insufficiency after coming off a week of Prednisone (which was for sinusitis that hadn t resolved after 4 courses of Augmentin.) Symptoms included aching glands around head and shoulders, lightheadedness, dizziness, insomnia, terrible fatigue, strange aches here and there. I also have had cognitive issues - losing track of what I am talking about mid sentence. CT scan yesterday showed that the paranasal sinses are clear now and all blood tests, FBC, iron, thyroid etc were normal. My doctor has prescribed a lower dose of Prednisone for 3 weeks to kick start the Adrenal glands. Prior to my problem with sinusitis, I have had at least a year of stress due to grief, supporting others through grief, daughter getting married, changes at work and a greatly increased workload where I don t have time for leisure. I am 49 and mother to 3. I work full time.I have started the low dose prednisone but am worried that it will cause more problems. Should I stay on it?
