Obviously, this is something I should ask the doctor but this a doctor I've never seen before and I haven't always had the best experiences with doctors in the past. I realize that I have to be my own best advocate and ask for what I need. I'm not going to be rushed out the door.
I've suffered from chronic fatigue pretty much my entire adult life but the older I get, the less I can cope. The last time I went to the doctor, I discovered my vitamin D was low and I've been taking supplements since then but with no change in energy. My hair has been thinning for the last few years and I didn't really care much but it's started to look bad now so I want to look into that also.
I'm a 31 year old female at a healthy weight and I exercise at least three times a week if it matters.
