Hi doctor,

I am suffering from the heavy headedness and weakness. I sleep for more time. When I wake up in the morning, I feel heaviness, especially in the back and side region. Because of this, I feel tried to do any work. I do not feel active the whole day. I also feel pain in the legs, below the knee level for the past three months. Some doctors suggested that it was because of indigestion. I have the habit of smoking. What could be my problem?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • The symptoms described by you can be because of some conditions like hypothyroidism (decreased thyroid level in the body), vitamin D deficiency, etc. It is better to get evaluated for the same.
  • I suggest you get the following investigations done to rule out these conditions:
  1. Thyroid function test.
  2. Serum calcium.
  3. Serum vitamin D.
  • Meanwhile, I suggest you take tablet Shelcal (Calcium) 500 mg, twice a day for 10 days. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take medicine with their consent.
