Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
Have you been seen for this particular problem?
Had any blood tests?
Do you have any other medical problems?
Are you on any medications for anything?
How are your periods?
Please let me know.
No haven't been to docs with this yet, I have had the mirena coil for 5 months which has stopped my heavy periods, I take oxytetracycline for acne Ive had since age 13, no other medications.
For how long are you having tiredness?
Ive always been tired since teenager but just managed it but now realising it just isn't how other people are
I think that you should have a few blood tests done:1. Thyroid hormone test if you have not had one done recently.2. Vitamin D levels in the blood. Vitamin D deficiency is very common indeed and can be the cause of the aches and pains that you are having.3. You are most likely near your menopause and hormonal disturbances when a lady reaches near menopause can cause aches and pain and increasing fatigue.
So these are the things that need to be considered and ruled out.
Are you with me?
yes I have been tested for thyroid couple of years ago but it was normal, the muscles have always ached its always been a constant effort
I think that you should be tested again for your thyroid.I would also test vitamin D levels along with FSH and LH levels to see if you have undergone menopause or nearing menopause as that can also be the cause of your symptoms.
yes shall do that
