Hey doc i spoke with...
Hey doc i spoke with you a couple times before. I had pneumonia back on April 15. After the pneumonia cleared in my lungs I was still having fatigue, light headed, groggy headed feeling sick. I would say Now i'm 85% back to my normal self. Energy level feels normal for the most part. I have gotten so much better but i still feel at times fatigued and that sick feeling thru out the day. Its been 2 months since i was diagnosed with pneumonia should i go back to see my primary?

Hi again

Just to check here--have you recently had your thyroid function check and a check for anemia?

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
my TSH was 2.130 And yes i have been checked for anemia also all came back normal. My doctor did supplement me with Vitamin D because mine was 25 which he wanted it a little bit higher.
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I have been having chest flutters but i think thats just anxiety. my heart blood work and ekg came back fine.

Then I still think it's a hangover from the pneumonia but I think you'll be over it in about another two weeks

I don't see a need to check with your doctor right now

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
