Doctor DanB :

Hello and thanks for your question. Do you know what blood tests your doctor ran? There are a few that I think should've been run and I'd like to know if they were included in the panel of tests your doctor performed?

Doctor DanB :

Are you there?

Customer:

blood test =CBC.LIPID.CMP.TSH.HEMOGLOBIN.T3

Doctor DanB :

Thank you for getting that information. What do you mean by loss of vision?

Customer:

EVEN THOUGH I WARE GLASSES MY VISION HAS DEFINITELY BECOME WEAKER,LIKE LAZY WHEN I TAKE MY DISTANCE GLASSES OF TO REST MY EYES OBJECTS THAT WERE USUALLY STILL IN FOCUS ARE NOW OUT OF FOCUS & I NOW HAVE TO WARE MY GLASSES.. & TO READ UP CLOSE I HAVE TO WARE MY READING & MY DISTANCE TOGETHER( ON TOP OF EACH OTHER )

Doctor DanB :

Okay, I think there are a couple of possibilities of illnesses that can be causing your symptoms. The first is "Mono" or what is more completely termed infectious mononucleosis. There are antibodies that your doctor can run to determine if this is the case. The other, which is more rare, but certainly possible in your age group. This is called Giant Cell Arteritis or temporal arteritis. It can be particulary dangerous because it can cause sudden vision loss and can be heralded by the vision transiently going out, double vision, but also the constitutional symptoms you are having and headaches. I would recommend having your doctor evaluate you for both of these entities. Does this make sense?

Doctor DanB :

Does this information help address your concerns? Do you have any other concerns or questions about this topic?

Customer:

OK BUT WHAT IS CAUSING MY CRONIC FATIGUE & PERMANENT TIERDNESS

Customer:

MY CONCENTRATION,,MY SORE WEAK EYES, MY CRONIC FATIGUE, ALL SEEM TO BE LINKED TOGETHER

Customer:

YOU DID NOT REPLY OR GIVE ME AN ANSWER TO MY LAST QUESTIONS WHAT IS THE CAUSE OF MY CRONIC FATIGUE , ALL MY SYMPTOMS SEEM TO ME TO BE CONNECTED, MY CONCENTRATION ,, MY SORE WEAK EYES ,, MY CRONIC FATIGUE

Doctor DanB :

Yes, I'm sorry, I had to step away from my office for awhile. Those symptoms (chronic fatigue, difficulty concentrating and sore eyes) can all be related to either the virus causing infectious mononucleosis and also temporal arteritis.
