Feeling weak and giddy

I was diagnosed with Diabetes in 2005. I was on glador 1 mg. For the past 5 years I have been taking Metformin 500 mg BD, Vildaglyptin 50 mg BD, and Telmisartan H 40 BD for hypertension. Recently my sugar levels were elevated. Doctors prescribed 1000 mg Metformin BD and Voglibose in addition to the above. I also am taking BGR-34 4 tablets a day daily for one month now. I take statins and clonazepam for anxiety. I live alone and have no much control over what I eat because I have to depend on outside food. My job though sedentary is stressful and so is my personal life. Of late I feel no desire to eat and digestion is very bad and there is bloating. I take patoprazole 40 mg and Domperidone 10 mg once daily. there is a persistent chronic pain in one shoulder. Most importantly, I feel terribly weak and dizzy. I am unable to think clearly and am always stressed. Zero exercise tolerance. Darkness before the eyes. What is the problem with me?

Thyroid opthalmopathy

My mother has been suffering from thyroid opthalmopathy from last one year. Symptoms: Thyroid hormone fluctuation (generally hyper, long term methimez (10 mg) usage turns into hypo) , eyes are swelled, protrusion from eye socket, redness, irritation and continuous watering. she is using steroids of different dose (60,50........5 mg) for her eyes from last 7 months. Recently, she is getting back pain continuously ( we are assuming, it is may be due to steroid usage) Now she is suggested to go for thyroid surgery which is planned at the end of this month. Here i am attaching the concern reports regarding this. Can you please go through and suggest, Is it really advisable and is there any other complications after surgery. It is completely curable......???? what is the success rate of this surgery......???
