i have been suffering from upper abdominal pain, headaches, constipation, and fatigue, I am not feeling well and my concentration is decreasing, I suffer from headaches that come and goes.
I have been doing cbc each year or less and each time I have relative lymphocytosis but the last cbc also showed slight left shift (bands 7%) and my esr is high abdominal scan was normal but I didn't have a check on colon or stomach yet. I also sleep alot but I wake up tired and with severe joint pains.
can anyone advice with further tests. I cant perform well at work and i am so tired all the time.

Thank you

You sound like you're pregnant.

But if that's impossible, then you may want to get tested for ibs (irritable bowel syndrome)

the tests to get an ibs diagnoses are like what you've done abdominal ultrasound scan if you don't want to be exposed to the ct ray scan...my doctor said as long as you do an abdominal scan it's a diagnoses...mine was sound scan not ray scan....still i was given details of my organs which i kept also for my records, the results were normal, i did blood tests, including cbc, esr, cpk, crp, tsh , hepatits and diabetes blood tests all normal i did emg for muscle pain and it came clear but this is not necessary if you don't have muscular pain, (EMG) I had a colonoscopy and manometary, clear, in a physical exam they found my colon full of s***L an indication of constipation...ca125 and transvaginal ultrasound normal but i did them because i used to experiance light periods due to stress but ca125 ovary tumor marker test is needed if bloating is the case. i hope this helps

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
I would suggest you thyroid function tests and serum cortisol to rule out organic cause. If these labs were normal then consult psychiatrist to evaluate you for chronic fatigue syndrome.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
