Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Yes. There are a number of medical conditions that need to be ruled out.
Things like diabetes, thyroid disease, liver problems etc can all cause symptoms like you are experiencing.
The best thing for you to do is to get in for a full physical examination and some blood work with your primary care MD on Monday. Hopefully she will be able to find the source of your lethary and get you feeling better.
Is there anything else you would like to discuss at this point or have all your questions been answered to your satisfaction?
I hope this information was helpful for you. But I do work for tips so I want to make sure you are happy with me before rating me. If you have another question on this or a related issue feel free to fire away. And please let me know if the rating system gives you any troubles. Thanks in advance, Dr. Rick MD FACS
We have been experiencing problems with the chat system for the last few days. Our engineers are working on it. However, I'll switch over to the Q&A system. This system works a lot like 'text messaging' but an email is sent to each of us anytime something is posted to this thread. We can continue to work on your question there..... :)
Why was I sent to an eye specialist?
