Hello, welcome to the site! My name isXXXXX and I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
I'm sorry to hear about this
Are you on any medication now?
I dont take any medications now. I dont smoke, drink modestly. hardly drink pop. eat all right. i take a greens supplement. For the most part i believe its stress, depression. I own my business and its become very stressful. And alot of other things have happened. My BP is normal. Lately, i been feeling slight side aches. some pressure in my chest. My memory has gotten really bad. I feel like its from stress. i been real sleepy and never can get enough sleep. Ive had these symptoms before when i was in college and felt stress. not sure if its anxiety or stress or depression.
Are you there?
Are you interested in trying medication and have you had any tests? I ask because you may have hypothyroidism
Um, im not sure on tests. I think i been tested for that. not sure though.
Okay, I think you should have your thyroid checked with a test called a TSH
If it is low you will only require supplements
If it is normal then you may try antidepressants
i had a testosterone test done. and that was abnormal i guess. the number was 344. (NNN) NNN-NNNNis normal. not sure what that means
That may also cause you to feel tired and depressed
You may require testosterone replacement
so, i need to see an endocrinologist. and have blood work?
You can see a general doctor, and just request for blood tests (TSH)
Is there anything else I can help you answer on this topic or anything I can help clarify?
i will call tomorrow and see if the doctor has ever had that test done.

whats your opinion on medication, if i go that route
levothroid is a good drug for the thyroid
fluoxetine is a good drug for depression
what do you think of my symptoms
I have been a naturally tired person my whole life.
I think you may have hypothyroidism or depression
i was once told when i was little that i had over active testicles.. not sure what that means. i used to get side aches when i was like 10. they would get real bad.
Okay, I don't know if that is related to your current symptoms
ya, i just thought of that i never had told anyone. didnt even know what it meant
Is there anything else I can help answer on this topic?
what you think about trying to get energy. what would be a good route
You may consider exercise if your tests are normal
It seems to be taking you time to respond, I am not sure if there is a computer problem
o, im just thinking of what to do. i didnt really wanna go see a doctor. costs too much.
Then you may have to take the test at a lab
Those are the only solutions, unless you try to obtain the medication online, which is usually illegal
ya, i just found a site you can buy generic meds. idk the legalities.
It is usually illegal
It is likely a scam
I would not trust it
the depression med you like. i was just thinking of trying something for a little while and seeing if i feel different. Do you think thats a bad idea?
yes, I think it is a bad idea, I would never advise my patient to do that
just seems like doing nothing is not a good idea. im sure ive had my thyroid tested.
Okay, I am sorry, I am not sure what question you would like me to answer in your last reply, can you please phrase the response in the form of a question so I can answer?
I'm sorry,I have to go see a patient soon, are you still there? If you are please respond
ok, sounds good. thanks for help
You're quite welcome
