I'm 26 years of age, and up until this point and life have been diagnosed with Acid Reflux and IBS, having no Medical Coverage at the time I'm hesitant to take myself to a Doctor... but I fear despite my stubborn nature, my time is numbered and I can't keep putting things off...

My period was 36 hours late, and came with surprisingly heavy bleeding, some blood clotting included. Since my period has subsided I've been feeling "off". Almost every morning I've been awakening to a mild nausea. This nausea typically tapers off upon eating, but I've found can also be BROUGHT on, simply by laying upon my left hand side of my body, shifting positions doesn't offer me a "miracle cure" but it definitely doesn't add MORE to the queasy feeling.

Besides my nausea I've experienced such things as headaches (sometimes very severe, almost to a migraine level), a mild feeling of being off-balance/dizzy, a very sharp, almost cramping pain in my lower Pelvic Region (feels like menstrual cramping magnified in pain by 12) and have been feeling very clammy. Sometimes, despite sleeping directly under a fan, in a room that's already air conditioned, I awaken in an all out full-body night sweat.

I thought if I monitored my symptoms long enough, watching as things progress... one ache goes away... a new one begins, I'd be able to pinpoint what's going on with me, but each day presents something new and more disturbing to me.
