Customer Question
For several months I...

For several months I have had what I call a "mushy" headache and fatigue. No one seems to know what the problem is. I have to push myself to do anything. No desire to exercise or play tennis or do some of the chores needed around the home. My primary doc has now decided to refer me to a neurologist. I am usually a high energy very active guy.

Doctor's Assistant: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?

It is every day all day and no nausea

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I had heart surgery 3 years ago and recently had a heart flutter episode but my cardiologist says there is no connection to my head and fatigue issues.
