Maybe SLE maybe not.: Diagnosis of rheumatologic disease is generally based on symptoms with support from lab. Sounds like you have a rheumatologic disease and are being treated with a rheumatologic agent perhaps by a rheumatologist. They can explain your particular situation better, but suffice it to say tests are not always right and a single test does not generally make or break a diagnosis. ...Read more

I have a cortisol level of 0.8. Can that cause weight gain, extreme fatigue, joint pain. Low bp, heart palpitations? What should I do?

I have a cortisol level of 0.8. Can that cause weight gain, extreme fatigue, joint pain. Low bp, heart palpitations? What should I do?

Complicated: Normal 8 am cortisol is 8-23 micrograms per deciliter. Since you don't use units, it's not clear if you're normal or not. Moreover, even if it's low as I think you're hinting, your Symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) may have suppressed it. A cortrosyn stimulation test is needed. Finally, low cortisol could cause fatigue and low BP, but not the other symptoms. Clearly, you need to stay under your doctor's care! ...Read more

Throat pain and itchiness, joint pain, night sweats,fatigue. Do I have the flu? Or something more serious such as throat cancer? It's been 6 days.

Flu: Are those the choices in your mind? flu or throat cancer (in a 24 year old)? do you have history of anxiety or obsessive-compulsive disorder? why would you think "throat cancer"? and how would throat cancer cause joint pain? sounds like the flu.

Hello. : Hello. I don't know if those symptoms just came on. The combination of palpitations, chest pain, dizziness, nausea and dizziness is worrisome. I realize that you are a young woman. These are some of the symptoms of a mycocardial infarction (heart attack). Chest pain, tightness, squeezing or fullness is the most common presentation. However the pain can also present in the upper back, the upper middle abdomen, jaw, head, teeth or in the arms (left more than right). One could have nausea, vomiting or it could feel like indigestion or heartburn. Feeling short of breath, sweating and just feeling out of sorts can also occur. About a fourth of people have no significant symptoms during a heart attack. Although your symptoms could be caused by a number of things and you are young, i none the less recommend that you call 911. It is important to determine if you are having a cardiac event. ...Read more

I have been having extreme fatigue, dry skin and muscle and joint pain. I had some labs done and my calcium was 10.6, TSH 8.54 FT$ .99, and PTH was 19?

I have been having extreme fatigue, dry skin and muscle and joint pain. I had some labs done and my calcium was 10.6, TSH 8.54 FT$ .99, and PTH was 19?

Tests Normal?: 53 F Iowa gives lab tests but no normal values for the lab tests. Never send lab tests to us without sending normal values from the lab that did them. This is because most analyes do not have universal reference standard and thus different labs may have different normal values and ranges. Also if we know why labs were being done it helps interpret test results. So send medical Hx as well. ...Read more
