I get constant headaches with it as well. Ive also had a dry throat for a few weeks with mucus build up at the back of my throat.. im in desperate need of help
Assistant: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?
Customer: Daily. I occasionally experience nausea but no vomiting

Customer: Anxiety, depression and acid reflux

Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Sorry to hear about this

What about your thyroid function tests?


Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I haven't been tested for that since July which came back normal

How old are you?

Have they retested your iron levels after treatment?


Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Im 30 and no I haven't been retested yet
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The fatigue and tiredness wasn't too bad until I was diagnosed with a yeast infection on my vagina which was about 3 months ago now, ive been feeling awful since then

Please wait for the answer


Thanks for the details

You need to have a retest and see if the iron levels are back to normal

This will be required as failure to respond could be one reason for this

If that is back to normal then there is a possibility of fibromyalgia as well

That need to be treated as well

So you must have a further evaluation as I stated above

Please do let me know if you have any other question
