This is Dr. David

I am sorry about your wife.

she needs to see a doctor and get blood testing to check iron levels, ferritin levels, vitamin D levels, thyroid hormone levels, B12 levels. low levels of these can cause fatigue.

at age 64, she is most likely after her menopause and has low estrogen levels. estrogen hormone replacement therapy could help her increase her energy levels

if she is not drinking enough fluid or water, she could be dehydrated, this can cause dizziness

she needs her ears checked for fluid which can cause dizziness.

he could have low lung capacity from lack of exercise which can cause shortness of breath and weak voice.

she should get bone density test to check for weak bones and osteoporosis which is very common at her age.

is she willing to see the doctors for these tests?

let me know if you have other questions.

if done for now, please leave positive rating above the chat box so I can get credit for helping you today

we only get credit for helping clients after positive feedback

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

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!

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.
