Thank you
Expert:  Dr Geyik, MBBS replied 9 days ago.

Can I please ask your age and if you have any medical conditions or take any other medications?

Expert:  Dr Geyik, MBBS replied 9 days ago.

Have you had any recent trauma?

Expert:  Dr Geyik, MBBS replied 9 days ago.

Do you have pain anywhere else, chest pain, breathing difficulties, neck pain, headache, numbness anywhere, change in vision/speech/face, etc?

Expert:  Dr Geyik, MBBS replied 9 days ago.

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.

Dear Dr GeyikThank you what blood test can I ask for to see were there is inflammation in bodyThank you
Expert:  Dr Geyik, MBBS replied 8 days ago.

There are blood tests such as ESR, CRP, other more specific blood tests that your doctor will know.

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
Unfortunately getting an appt with my NHS GP is absolutely zero chance waited two weeks for prescription and when I had phone call when I mentioned all of this was told to see chiropractor for my shoulder and neck and all the other symptoms not taken into consideration my really worry and concern know is the extreme hairloss and thinning that has come so quick and suddenly my body doesn’t feel right even with my stool it doesn’t have good smell it’ll ever ever had that I must have inflammation somewhere
Customer: replied 8 days ago.
Thank you DR much appreciated
Expert:  Dr Geyik, MBBS replied 8 days ago.

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.
