Hi, was wondering if anyone could help, i have the following symptoms.

Lower right abdominal pain
Chest Pain
Bleeding every second week (for 2-3days)
Peeing often but no pain
Right lower back pain
sore head
losing weight slowly

the above come and go, never constant pain....

i have said to doc about the bleeding etc and he said its my hormones or my pill! i have been on this "mini pill" for over a year and not had a period in two years due to having the contraception injection and then the mini pill. Then all of a sudden the above has happened..

hope someone and help me with this. :(:confused::confused::confused:

  • I think it is the pill causing your symptoms, please get off of the hormone therapy and give yourself a couple of months to get back to normal. If you are still having the pain then I recommend an ultrasound to rule out ovarian cysts or fibroids. Consider trying acupuncture to help regulate your periods and manage your other symptoms. Best wishesDOM

  • Not sure what it could be. You might try an endocrinologist to see if your adrenal function is okay. This is kind of a stretch/stab in the dark, but it's possible that the more frequent periods (menorrhagia) could be from ovarian failure; and the fatigue, frequent urination, headaches, and weight loss are from adrenal insufficiency. Together this might be Schmidt's syndrome...But it really sounds like you need to go to a doctor who can figure your symptoms out.Good Luck! Sorry you don't feel well.
