So the day started with some interesting news. I got back another set of test results. All normal except Thyroid readings which were low. Of course they couldn't tell me if that was the cause of any of the other symptoms I have, but they did offer me drugs. I think that a standard medical practice is to offer drugs to the patient before they ask so you can cut down on the amount of time you actually have to spend with them, especially since you don't actually know what's wrong.
