This may be a transient viral process which is likely going to imporve and your symptoms should resolve shortly. occasionally, however, this may take up to six months. I get these types of questions from many patients who are in bad physical shape. There is something about being overweight and deconditioned that tends to bring on these symptoms as well. Although, in your case I think that the viral etiology is more likely.
My suggestions are to :
1. try to get back in shape. It might be difficult now because of all these symptoms, But you should not geive up.
2. check an echocardiogram to make sure that your heart function is normal. It is not absolutely necessary, however, especially is you have no insurance. A simple exam done by an experienced physician would certainly suffice.
I HAD AN MRI OF MY HEAD DONE A FEW WEEKS AGO
THE NEROLOGIST SAID I HAVE A NON SPECIFIC SPOT ON THE LEFT BACK OF MY HEAD
SHE HAS REQUESTED I DO ANOTHER MRI
DO I NEED TO DO THE WHOLE HEAD OR CAN I DO THE SPECIFIC AREA?
