Thank you for the additional information.

There are several conditions that can cause the symptoms that you describe. The most common would be a nutrient deficiency, such as of iron, folic acid or vitamin B12, any of which can cause anaemia and general metabolic symptoms. It also could be related to certain hormonal conditions, such as diabetes or thyroid disease. Other metabolic conditions also should be considered, such as liver or kidney dysfunction; these are less likely in someone of your age, but will be readily excluded with a general chemistry profile.

If you have not yet been seen, it would be appropriate to see your GP for a physical examination and blood tests to screen for the various conditions noted above. Statistically, the single most likely would be iron deficiency, but the usual approach would be to perform screening tests for several of these conditions initially.

If I can provide any further information, please let me know.
