Diagnose your symptoms now!
  • check your overall health status
  • learn what you should be doing right now
  • have a doctor review your case (optional)

Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose poor recovery from exertion, we could:

  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.

Step 1: List all Possible Causes

We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "poor recovery from exertion" as a symptom.  Here are two possibilities:
  • Chronic Fatigue-Fibromyalgia
  • Hypothyroidism

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
having non-scalp scaly/flaky skin
incoherent speech
swollen cervical nodes
unsound sleep
low free T4
major fatigue for 3-12 months
metallic taste in mouth
frequent 'chills'
poor concentration during cycle
low HDL cholesterol level
high iodine consumption
moderate afternoon/evening fatigue
... and more than 70 others

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of poor recovery from exertion:
Cause Probability Status
Hypothyroidism 96% Confirm
Chronic Fatigue-Fibromyalgia 64% Possible
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process
