Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 year ago):
During the past two years I have developed, in the following order, extreme fatigue, stomach discomfort (diarrhea, vomiting, bloating, gas, pain), joint pain, and problems with short memory. The stomach discomfort seems to be due to a lactose intolerance and the joint pain to a gluten sensitivity. Those symptoms have largely subsided. The fatigue is still present and conflicts with my ability to secure a job, and I think it's probably associated with the memory issues. It might be due to sleep apnoea but I have not yet completed a sleep study. I have always had low blood pressure.
Helpful on Nov, 24, 2012:
Have you had your thyroid levels checked? Be sure to ask your doctor for the complete thyroid panel. A TSH is helpful but not a complete picture and may miss more subtle indications of an imbalance.
