Headache for 20 hours now, fatigue and malaise feeling. Warning sign of impending stroke? Should I be scared?
Headache: If you've had a headache for such a long time you need to see a doctor ASAP. You need to have your blood pressure checked and may need a CT scan or MRI of the brain. With your age I would be more suspicious or a migraine or an aneurism than a stroke. Either way you need medication attention ...Read more
I'm experiencing fatigue & Malaise. Ongoing for at least 1-2 yrs but seems to be getting worse. All hormone and blood testing has been normal.?
You may be depressed and may need medication for it. You may wish to consult a psychiatrist.
Exercise may help. It may sound counter-intutitive but exercise could alleviate fatigue. Start with an easy exercise like walking and gradually increase the intensity. Exercise is as effective as medication for mild-moderate depression.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Fibromyalgia concern: 30's female with generalized pain, fatigue, and malaise might have fibromyalgia. Rheumatologists can discern. If there is low back pain with sciatica then pelvic girdle instability becomes a concern, with widespread compensatory upper body muscle spasms. Chronic muscle pain begets restless sleep, which begets depression. Investigate medicinal cannabis and Osteopathy. ...Read more
Would untreated lupus and celiac (2-3 yrs) leave a general feeling or malaise/fatigue? Turning into hypochondriac but know its serious.
Why does post-exertional malaise not kick in until the following day for me? Moderate exertion causes extreme fatigue and/or joint pain the next day.
See a doctor: This can occur with a wide variety of underlying medical conditions and in and by itself is so non-specific that without clearly relating it to other factors makes it difficult to discuss. You need full history and physical. Good luck and hope this works out to your advantage. ...Read more

PLEASE... Rubbery swelling PLS cervical node area, no US scan or blood results yet temp +/- 38C 9+ mos, sweats fatigue malaise. Honest possibilities?
Lots: Most enlarged painful lymph nodes in the neck of young healthy people without prior serious medical history will be reactive to infection in the throat or skin. If nine months of fever night sweats and malaise is real, I would worry about lymphoma or tuberculosis. Lots of other rare possibilities such as sarcoidosis, metastatic thyroid or squamous cell cancer Castleman disease etc ...Read more
Is it true that aerobic exercise is fatal for people with exhausted adrenals/chronic fatigue? Can post-exertion malaise progress to post-exertion death? And what is the mechanism of fatality in that situation?
Adrenal insufficienc: People with adrenal insufficiency do have chronic fatigue and very easy fatiguability with exercise, but death from exercising is not a consideration as their body would prevent them from exercising to that point. It is true that serious medical events like infections, heart attacks, bleeding ulcer, etc or major surgery can cause dire consequences, however as they lack adequate adrenaline secretion ...Read more

Symptoms fatigue / headaches/ malaise. Work up 2008 negative except elevated CRP now elevated CRP 2.73, sed rate 22, ANA positive speck 1:40, ch50>60?
That's good: I would urge you to draw no conclusion from any sed rate reading that's not extremely high unless there's specific symptoms and signs. Millions of healthy young adults have positive ANA at a titer of 1:40 speckled. I'd urge you to get into a fitness-focused lifestyle, hang out with quality friends and do meaningful things. Best wishes. ...Read more

Constant bloating, gas, belching, fatigue, and malaise. Comes on suddenly and lasts weeks on and off. IBS? SIBO? Or what?

Aeromonas found in stool. No gastro symptoms but fatigue/malaise for a year. Autoimmune conditions ruled out. Blood counts fine. Treatment needed?
No.: Not all Aeromonas species are pathogens. Aeromonas has been isolated from the stool of asymptomatic individuals. Even if it does result in diarrheal disease, it is usually self-limited requiring only supportive care, such as fluid repletion. The only instances in which antibiotics are required include severe diarrhea or diarrhea in an immunosuppressed patient. Your fatigue/malaise is unrelated. ...Read more

I continue to have a high ANA level but negative for autoimmune disease. I always have a gen malaise. Fatigue occas lightheadedness and dizzy. Any idea?
Other reasons: Having an elevated ANA suggests that you are more at risk in developing an autoimmune disorder- but this is not certain. There are many other causes for fatigue, malaise etc. Assuming your other blood tests were normal (cbc, thyroid etc), consider depression, sleep apnea etc as yet other potential causes for your symptoms. Good luck. ...Read more
Fatigue, malaise, weight loss, low grade fever. ASO screen >400. On oral amoxicillin, 10 days. No better. What needs to be checked next? What tests?
Strep test: Did you have earlier ASO titer which then documented rise of ASO? If you truly had strep infection which was not sensitive to Amoxil (amoxicillin) there are plenty of others available. Your doc should speak to the ID maven at your local hospital and ask for advise on treatment in your particular zone. ...Read more
6 hours post a sexual encounter, I had pins and needles in my feet progressing upwards with chills, 2 days after fever, fatigue, malaise. Anythng serious?
Std: The onset of your symptoms is too soon for a sexually transmitted disease as the incubation period is longer than hours.

See your Physician if symptoms persist or worsen or if you develop lesions on your penis or abnormal discharges.? partne ...Read more

Have lupus. Bad fatigue, malaise, joint pain, aches for 1 week. All Normal Labs. My Rheumatoligist doesn't think lupus flare. Can I assume virus?
? viral: After a week of prodromal like symptoms, I would expect common viral infections to declare themselves with noticeable signs and symptoms like sore throat, cough, rash, diarrhea, etc. Absent such signs and lack of fever, your symptoms are nondiagnostic and treatment would be symptomatic with rest, adequate fluid intake and Tylenol as needed. If symptoms persist or worsen, reconsult your rheumatologis ...Read more

Probably IBD: Acute inflammation on colonoscopy suggests inflammatory bowel disease. Transvaginal utltra sould needed for Gyn pathology which doesn't appear to be associated with this problem. Rather a biopsy of the site of inflammation needed that produced the loose stools. If bx positive then proper meds needed to resolve problem ...Read more

Chronic lethargy. Contract frequent infections/ailments (cellulitis, bronchitis, hives, headaches, panic attacks, and so on). Chronic malaise. Severity of fatigue makes me listless. Please help me.?
See doc: Truthfully, sounds like you have a multitude of symptoms affecting many different organ systems. May need a series of blood tests, good physical exam etc to pin down cause. Certainly may have root in autoimmune disorder of some kind, versus various infections such as tick bites for example which can have widespread issues, or something as simple as allergy. Best to see your doc. ...Read more
