78year old female. Feeling weak for 2 months now. Can't do

Customer Question

78year old white female. Feeling weak for 2 months now. Can't do my housework, I don't feel like going anywhere, I just feel rotten. Have been to the ER twice , once I had nausea & diarrhea. Second time was the next day. I almost passed out and was taken by ambulance to ER. All my blood work was spot on. I was slightly dehydrated the first Time. Have been drinking 60 oz. of water/fluids daily. I have a-fib., high blood pressure, under-active thyroid, neuropathy (am not diabetic), I take metroprolol, Lultaq, levothroxine, and Neurotin. Any ideas appreciated. LD

have you had your TSH thyroid hormone levels checked?

are you exercising regularly?

are you keeping a food diary to see what foods you may be allergic to causing nausea and diarrhea?

are you drinking alcohol? this can cause nausea and diarrhea.
