Hi, wondering if anyone has any idea of whats going on with me as it seems to be ongoing for me this year.

Was at the doctors last week with severe pain and swelling in both of my ankles, he ran blood tests and everything came back fairly clear (little anemic). He said I had very severe amount of fluid around both my ankles so but me on dieuretics which have relieved the pain a small bit but fluid stil there.

Earlier this year I have had a Breast Biopsy done as I had found a few lumps, all came back clear, I have been having gynae problems where I was having my periods for 2 to 3 weeks a month so had a Micro Endeo. Ablation carried out but still in severe pain, although the blood clots are no longer a problem and bleed now for about 7 to 10days now (on difane for this pain). I have also had problems with severe constipation where I don't have any urge to empty my bowels (sorry it that is too much information).

I am in my mid thirties, not overweight and exercise a little. The sequence of events for this year as outlined above are

February - Breast Biopsy
March - Gynae problems got severe
May - Constipation problem started (have never suffered with this before)
Nov - Fluid on the ankles - unexplained.

I would really appreciate if anyone has any idea of anything that might be a common denominator with all of these problems or if it is just pure bad luck. I am so drained from it all and feeling very run down. Many thanks.
