8 months ago, very suddenly, I was hit w/ SEVERE fatigue, no focus/concentration, very low energy, occasional racing pulse. Many tests were run.

Blood Work, CT Scan + Ultrasound:
3-cm gallstone
2.7-cm liver hemangioma
Polycythemia (NOT Primary)

'92 - removal of congenital blockage in right kidney, resulting in 15% function on that side
'10 - Chrone's Disease diagnosis, thought I've had no other problems and take no medication for this

What's going on? How can I feel better?
