I am extremely tired, I frequently have to the restroom

Customer Question

I am extremely tired, I frequently have to the restroom through out the night at least 5-6 times. There are times I am light headed, thirsty. I am also gaining weight and feeling hungry a lot, I also am having a lot of stomach up sets, my body aches a lot. I have had my blood checked as I have anemia but the last test I had done the Dr. said was fine.
JA: Is this a time sensitive issue? What type of specimen are they testing?
Customer: they are testing for my hemoglobin.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I don't know if it pertains to this and it is embarrassing but I have no sex drive. I had a hysterectomy 29 years ago I had huge fibroid tumors. I do experience mood swings as well.

how old are you?

after age 50, many women have menopause where their ovaries stop working and this can cause fatigue and weight gain and loss of sex drive.

overactive bladder muscles, drinking fluid or coffee or caffeine or alcohol during or after dinner can cause you to have to urinate more frequently at nigh time when you sleep.
