Customer Question

Ok here it goes I have been to five doctors
I am always tired even if I sleep all night
My knees have been swollen on the inside for months
We put my son in daycare because I can't pick him up. If I crouch I shake like my ankles with break because of the lack of muscle strength
My abdomen is swollen and it looks like I'm pregnant which I am not
Chronic diarrhea
Persist cough
Anxiety so strong I shake but I take meds for that
I overheat all the time
And i get random yellow yellow/green black and black/brown bruises randomly
Also on inside of my arms where my elbow joints meet from that crease up is swollen both sides.
The swelling on my knees on the inside will sometimes streak red and blue

Forgot to add infections persistantly
Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 1 year ago.
OK
Many people can bruise easily.
If it is not normal for you, you need liver studies, coagulation studies and platelet studies.
To rule out a bleeding problem.
Also, ANA panel, to rule out autoimmune disease, along with a sed rate to see if you have hyper inflammation.
Thyroid studies need to be done as well.
A screen for heavy metal toxicity should be done.
Take this list back to your primary care.
OK, so that is an initial answer….

I don't bruise easily I a few months back fractured my foot in my sleep also. And this pain makes it hard to move around at all and so does this weak tiredness is there anything to help?
Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 1 year ago.
You have to have a diagnosis to treat.
Just based on your story here, I would suggest seeing a rheumatologist.
Muscle problems or autoimmune problems seem most likely.

I don't see cancer, but if that is your doctors concern, then you need to see a hematologist.

Proplapse is a surgical problem. Not related to bruising.
