Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I have the following problems in my daily life. Social phobia, inferiority complex, lack of concentration, and fear of everything. I am not interested to do anything. I am leading a sedentary lifestyle. I also masturbate a lot. I am thinking consistently about my future and living without happiness. I am also suffering from hypertension and palpitations. Please help.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

First of all, an inferiority complex, social phobia, poor concentration, and fear of everything can be a manifestation of depression or anxiety disorders. Having said this, we need to understand that the same symptoms can be present in abnormal thyroid function. The presence of hypertension and palpitations is another factor, which points out that, we need to rule out thyroid problems. I mean to say that please get T3, T4, and TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone) from a nearby laboratory as this could be the only thing as possible root cause of your problem. In addition, we also need to evaluate the renal function. For doing the same please get blood urea and serum creatinine test from the medical laboratory. Once the two tests are done, revert back to me with the details of the report.

Thank you.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
