Okay

He doesn't have diabetes? Doesn't take any anti-depressants, right?

This would be concerning if this has been started recently or has become significant recently.

There are medical causes for this including infections like tuberculosis, brucella

Anxiety

Or something more serious like lymphoma (a kind of cancer)

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Doctor: Dr. Sohaib, Doctor replied 8 months ago

In majority of cases there is no clear medical cause identified, in which case it is considered idiopathic

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Thank you for your answers I will check with his doctor just looking for a simple answer.
Doctor: Dr. Sohaib, Doctor replied 8 months ago

Now for him if this has started recently and associated with any other symptoms like sleep disturbances, or fever, or weight loss, I would be concerned and would have him evaluated in terms of physical exam and some basic tests like CB/CRP

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Doctor: Dr. Sohaib, Doctor replied 8 months ago

If this has been present for long; may be this is normal for him.
