I am a fit 24 year old woman and haven't had any previous

Resolved Question:

Hello, I am a fit 24 year old woman and haven't had any previous health problems. But For about six- nine months I have been extremely tired all the time, have blurry and very tired sore eyes and lots of headaches. I go dizzy when I stand up from sitting and get out of breath easily. Also recently I have been very achey, particularly my back and shoulders. I have had blood tests which came back normal.

Thank you .
No I don't have fever or rash and the blood tests were just for diabetes, vit d and thyroid. My knee joints hurt sometimes and are clicky.
Expert:  Internist replied 1 year ago.
there are many possible explanations of your symptoms.likethyroid problem.vitamin/mineral deficinenciesanemiamuscle problems like polymyositisfibromyalgia can also present like this ( excessive stress and anxiety are often associated with this.connective tissue disease like SLE furthermore dizziness on standing suddenly and getting short of breath easily can be due to volume depletion ,and or anemia. I recommend following tests after a complete physical and thorough history by your doctor. CBC and ESR.. to check anemia and see if there is underlying illnessTSHserum electrolytes including magnesiumserum ANA and CPK levels. you can take multivitamins without checking their levels without any harmif all test and physical turns out to be normal , then it is fibromyalgia, and you will be benefitted from daily amitryptyline. discuss these options with your doctor.please let me know if you have any questions/ if i should provide clarifications.kindly leave positive ratings above chat box.feel free to ask any follow up questions you have. thank you
