Your PCP?: If you have a PCP, he/she should be able to help you in managing almost all your symptoms, which are difficult to attribute to any one disease. So let's handle them one at a time. This requires you to make a list by order of magnitude or severity to your mind. Some of the symptoms suggest an element of stress either in your home or work life.
