A 38-year-old woman went to the doctor with several complaints that seemed unrelated but they had started within the last few months. She was feeling depressed and fatigued, with no interest in her normal activities. She was experiencing many more headaches than usual and was having trouble with her memory. She thought it might just be a bout of depression, which she has experienced occasionally since her teens. She was also having tingling and numbness in her hands and feet that was near constant.
