Hi everyone, I just found this site, maybe someone can help me. Ive been lactating heavily from my left breast since December. The right, just barely. I had my son in April of 2008. I went back down to my pre-preg weight of 115-120. Since December I have gained almost 40 lbs. I have ulcerative colitis and eat very small meals. Nothing in my life or diet has changed to account for this incredible weight gain. I have alot of back pain, I attribute it to all the extra weight Im carrying. I had a prolactin level test done when this started, nothing. I have no insurance so I dont know where to go from here. No one wants to help me and theres obviously something wrong!! thanks for reading

Not sure if this is relevant to you but it very well could be a side effect of medications.
