    While it is unlikely you have cancer you should make an early appointment with your GP/family practitioner. I hope you are well soon.

      A blood test will not diagnose everything and it depends which tests were conducted. Your symptoms do need further investigation so back to your doctor and explain your tiredness in addition to weight loss

    Hi sree12945, you mentioned that your blood test came back normal.  Did your GP include a thyroid function test? I had hyperthyroidism and weight loss is one of the symptoms as is tiredness and extreme hunger (among others).
