Hi Is all this a constant problem? What tests have you had for it?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Blood sugar, bone tests, body temp, body examination,. Have I just got flu and not realised it?

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
But Bobby you said for years--does this just come on from time to time?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes it gets worse but I didn't realise I had something until now. I used to sleep with my window open even in winter. I've had fevers in recent months.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK Have you had the following--thyroid function tests, cortisol levels, vitamin B12 and D levels, and a test either for mononucleosis or for EBV--Epstein-Barr virus?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Nothing wrong with my thyroid. I do have allergies to dust, cat, grass and some others but I take medication. But I still get allergy symptoms of sorts.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
What about the other tests Bobby?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Bobby--you accidentally opted me out. I'm back now so could you please answer my last question?
