Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello. This is Dr Geyik and I will be assisting you today.
Can I please ask your age and if you have any medical conditions or take any other medications?
Have you had any recent trauma?
Do you have pain anywhere else, chest pain, breathing difficulties, neck pain, headache, numbness anywhere, change in vision/speech/face, etc?
Hair loss can be due to low iron levels and/or anaemia and hopefully iron tablets will help with that.
Your other symptoms are non-specific and I agree with you that something is not quite right. I feel you need further assessments and investigations. So I suggest you contact your GP for a review and to discuss this. You can also contact 111 and explain your concerns and they can pass this to your own GP. They are both linked.
I am sorry for the late reply; I finished my shift yesterday.
It sounds like you have a lot of symptoms. Even though Covid-19 can cause chronic symptoms (long Covid-19) you have multiple different symptoms and the exact cause is not clear. To me it looks like you need full assessment and further investigations to find out what is really happening. There are other blood tests that can be done to see if there is any inflammation in your body. If you can't get hold of your GP, you can contact 111 and they can see you at the weekend or after 18.30 today. They can at least make an initial assessment and document their findings and send them to your GP for further action.
There are blood tests such as ESR, CRP, other more specific blood tests that your doctor will know.
You can still call 111 and they could make an assessment and send the findings to your GP. This could be quite helpful.
You are welcome.
