I have been having sleeping issues. I go to sleep at night perfectly fine but during the day I am tired all the time, coffee doesn't even help anymore, I can sleep all day every day if given the chance, my energy levels are allmost completely depleted. yesterday I swept my back porch and felt like i was going to have a heart attack after a couple of minutes. My heart was racing. About a couple of weeks ago I was passing what appeared to be clots during a bowel movement and that occured a couple more times after that. I also had pain in my lower left back. I went to my doctor and they did an ultrasound and xray and found that I have a kidney stone and arthritis in my back but that doesn't explain the other symptoms. I don't know what else to do or if this is associated with something.
I think you should see a doctor as soon as possible. They may run some blood tests including a thyroid test and complete blood count. If you have blood in your stools, you should see a doctor as soon as possible. They may order a colonoscopy, barium enema and/or CT scan of the abdomen.
Please see your primary care doctor as soon as possible.
Thanks for the response, I don't have the blood anymore but the chronic fatigue is still there. I also (a few months ago) had a varicose vein removed on my right knee and know have chronic pain that developed and does not go away, I can't bend that knee for long because it starts to hurt even worse. It scares me because I keep thinking it's a clot which I have been told there would be other issues if it was. but my main concern is the fatigue. They did all the blood tests and came up empty for anything.
