    The symptoms are so general they could be caused by a variety of different things.  It might be a process of elimination to figure this out.  The first step is getting a comprehensive battery of blood tests that include thyroid function.  Her symptoms sometimes occur in people that have a thyroid problem.  If she decides to pursue a blood test, its best to have the blood test scheduled at least a few days ahead of a doctor office visit to discuss the test results.

    she needs to see a doctor so they can do tests, so they know if there is something wrong with her heart.
