Customer Question

Hi, My name is***** will be 30 in April. By 3pm I'm falling asleep, my energy levels are very low. I can't fall asleep until late at night. My insurance was cancelled and they don't want to re assign it back to me. I did take Lexapro but due to my insurance I couldn't fill my last prescription. My migraines are back and at full force. I shake at times and always feel drowsy and dizzy. No I am not pregnant.

What is your medical question for us?

This state of affairs can be due to hypothyroidism.

You need a thyroid function test right away.

You can call your health department and see where the neighborhood clinics are. These are on sliding scale.

You could also enroll in a teaching hospital medical clinic. These are on sliding scale.

Depression can also cause your sympotms, and a drug like lexapro can also help migraines.

You also need: all routine labs, B vitamin levels, magnesium levels and vitamin D levels.

Any clinic can do this.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
