Are you there
Expert:  Dr. Mark replied 8 days ago.

He has a variety of symptoms that can be of many causes.  It’s easy to check carbon monoxide levels .   He needs a full physical exam and battery of tests. He may have an infection.  I would do a full blood work up and see what turns up. I’d recommend a cbc, complete metabolic panel, sed rate. CRP and thyroid hormones.  Then depending on the results we move to additional tests.  Right now there’s too many possibilities to diagnose him.

Ok thankyou..u Di say register and get an urgent immediate doctor's appointment fo bloods etc too..appointments are so hard to get fter the COVID situation and some doctors surgeries aren't issuing appointments before 8 weeks hence my worry and coming onto here for help.
Expert:  Dr. Mark replied 8 days ago.
Is he feeling better today?  Any fever?  Would you consider going privately to get him evaluated much quicker?
Customer: replied 8 days ago.
He feels the same,no better,no worse, no fever. I would love to go private but simply can't afford it after being made redundant due to COVID..I don't even know the cost of private doctors..if anything like vets then I definately couldn't afford that
Expert:  Dr. Mark replied 8 days ago.

I hope he gets to see a gp soon.  Should he develop fever or his symptoms worsen then he’ll have to go back to the emergency.

Expert:  Dr. Mark replied 8 days ago.
