Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am board certified and I have 40 years of patient experience. I will be happy to help you today. I'm sorry to hear that you do not feel well. Your symptoms of being cold and fatigued could be due to having hypothyroid disease and Myxedema. Please request your doctor to order a blood test called TSH now. If Myxedema, you need immediate intravenous medication to control and reverse this life threatening problem.

I am here to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, please kindly rate me 5-Stars. Thank you
