Underweight and weakness at 24 years.

Posted by @subjobs32, Nov 17, 2011

Before you read further, let me tell you its quite long.
Can I discuss this with some medical professionals too ?

About me:
-24 year old guy with a 25′ waist (thin) !!!
-Height – 5’11
-Weight – about 120 pounds
-Structure – frail
-Mind – Not very alert, but when stomach is ok, sharp and intelligent.

Current Problems:
-Get tired easily/quickly (haemoglobin ok, but at minimum for male of my age – confirmed)
-Low blood pressure (do not remember value)
-Mild & infrequent constipation, gas.
-Low weight, strength, stamina, alertness.
-Noisy and painful movement of joints in fingers, wrists, ankles (urine tests do not indicate possibility of arthiritis)
-Feet and palms get cold easily (perhaps reynauds syndrome)
-Quality of sleep, 5-6 hours, erratic.
-Get weak during dangerous or tense situations. (Adrenal problems ???)
-Low rectal prolapse

Barium meal test-ok
Ultra sound-ok
Thyroid tests-ok
Urine and Blood-ok, except haemoglobin is at minimum.

Diet in teenage – Poor, lot of fast food, spicy stuff, cola, coffee etc.

I had hyperacidity for sure almost every second day and it seems that I had IBS (due to frequent constipation). It hurt me for 5 years, despite cutting the poor diet. The constipation is almost over for more than 2 years, after I took anti h-pylori medication.

Possibility of Gluten or Lactose intolerance ruled out, but not confirmed.

Can anyone suggest what this could mean and how I can get out of this problem(s) ? Cannot be frail and dull at young age. Need to be faster and better.

Have your pituitary and adrenal function checked. Make sure you have copies of the labs and doctors notes. I noticed they sometimes ignore what’s right in front of them. Good luck.
