What is your question?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Im 33 year old female. Suffer from depression and on a 10mg anti-depressant. My problem is the last two weeks ive felt really exhausted even after 7 hours sleep. got my bloods taken and thyroid came back clear, as did diabetes test. However, ive a kidney infection and im on anti-botics for that. is there anything wrong with me...if something was wrong would it show up in bloods? my CRP was high.

If you had thyroid testing, what is your exact TSH value?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i dont know..i was just told all is ok
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.
Never trust that.
Most doctors go with the accepted normal range from .5 to 4.5.
However, international and national groups have realized that over 2.5 can by hypothyroid, with symptoms of fatigue.
In addition, any infection can do it.
These would be my first things to look into.

ive itchy skin, back is out in heat rash...can you help
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.
You should go back to the doctor.
The rash should be examined in person as well.
NO, we do not diagnose or treat on the site.
You have every justification to go back to your doc and find the exact values and get further testing.
If you can't see your doctor, go to the ER.
Do so now. A rash can indicate infection as well.
