Hyperparathyroidism? MS? No balance, migraines, bone pain, dizzy, lightheaded, high calcium levels, low D levels, chronic fatigue, memory loss, etc.

Hyperparathyroidism? MS? No balance, migraines, bone pain, dizzy, lightheaded, high calcium levels, low D levels, chronic fatigue, memory loss, etc.

High calcium: This is probably not MS. The symptoms are not that particular to MS. Calcium levels should be normal in MS. How high is your calcium level? That can lead to several of these symptoms. If this is too high, perhaps treatment and/or referral to an endocrinologist is indicated. ...Read more

Hashimoto thyroidism, HGH bld pressure vitamin d sufficient, excess weight gain, feel tired all the time, would amphetamine boost my energy?

Hashimoto thyroidism, HGH bld pressure vitamin d sufficient, excess weight gain, feel tired all the time, would amphetamine boost my energy?

Yes, but: It would be potentially dangerous and possibly illegal depending upon the source of the amphetamines. Why put something in your body that is harmful and can potentially kill you? Also get off the armour thyroid, which is ground up pig tissue and have your doctor put you on brand name T4 replacement, which is better and safer. ...Read more

Dexpression, lathergic, low level of vitamin b12. And vitamin d deficiency, low level of energy?

Dexpression, lathergic, low level of vitamin b12. And vitamin d deficiency, low level of energy?

And your question?: I'm not sure what you are asking. Yes, vit d deficiency can cause fatigue. It is easy to correct with 5-8000 iu of d3/day. B12 deficiency can be serious too- try 1000 mcg of sublingual b12/day ; if that does not help try injections. See http://bit.Ly/1fnt3ox ; http://bit.Ly/1607tg3 if fatigue persists after correcting then see a good doc to explore the many other possible causes of fatigue. ...Read more

Many symptoms are different in different people. Some patients experience irritability and insomnia, while others feel a loss of energy and sleep more, for example. ...Read more

Antidepressants and low energy level, what to do?

Antidepressants and low energy level, what to do?

Low energy: Low energy level is also a symptom of depression, so it's possibly a residual sign of depression, rather than caused by meds. However, there is also a little-appreciated antidepressant-induced apathy syndrome. It's an uncommon side effect. Also, some AD meds are inherently sedating. Talk w your doc about trying other meds - or you may want to focus on psychotherapy as a mode of treatment. ...Read more

Can the anti-depressant, cymbalta, (duloxetine) affect testosterone, LH, FSH, PRL or TSH levels in any way?

Can the anti-depressant, cymbalta, (duloxetine) affect testosterone, LH, FSH, PRL or TSH levels in any way?

Here are some ..: The causes for low-T are many, can be primary or secondary. Over the last decade, more awareness in drug-induced HPG axis dysfunction has emerged leading to low-T. Now, it is increasingly known all drugs exerting their effects on CNS will in time affect HPG axis, notably the opiate-related drugs. For cymbalta (duloxetine), up to present, it does cause low-T in few patients, but reported at 0.07%. ...Read more

Blood TSH levels are 0.6 range is 0.5 - 5.5..I have anxiety depression and tremors and fast heartrate, is this related?

Possible: Tsh is "technically" in the low normal range so you cannot say that the thyroid is causing your symptoms at this point. It's still possible that the thyroid is the culprit but the only way to know is to check a complete thyroid profile: free T4 and free T3 (liothyronine) and possibly thyroid antibodies. The possibility is higher if the ft4 and ft3 is also elevated. ...Read more

Hypothyroid tests good yet very sluggish! how improve energy, concentration, +/or mood on own? Already eat healthy, sleep enough, and exercise a lot.

Hypothyroid tests good yet very sluggish! how improve energy, concentration, +/or mood on own? Already eat healthy, sleep enough, and exercise a lot.

More to it. : Fatigue is always a hard problem because the symptom can mean different things. Many people can't exercise, eat well sleep enough because they are so fatigued and depressed. You are ahead there. Are you mainly sleepy, dose off when still? See a sleep doctor. Or you don't feel right inside, nothing makes you feel happy? Talk to your primary care doc or counselor. No simple fix. Don't go it alone. ...Read more
