I was diagnosed recently with menorrhagia after years of suffering and bouncing from doctor to doctor. I was given Provera to stop the bleeding and moved directly to a birth control pill. At the time I had some blood tests done. I had a high sensitivity CRP test that came back at almost four times higher than normal as well as a SED rate that was 41. Also my folate levels were five times higher than normal and my TSH, 3.8. My doctor explained that is was normal to have such inflamation because I was bleeding so heavily.

Well, even though the pills have worked, my joint pain and inflamation has not gone away. I am still fatigued like my body is one big sore bruise. Other symptoms are; joint cracking, joint swelling, fatigue, loss of balance, memory loss and confusion, weight gain, loss of appetite, spots in vision, mind numbing headaches, heart palpatations that come and go, dry skin, exessive sweating but feeling cold, and difficulty sleeping.

I am only 26 years old. I know I have PCOS but I am almost certain that it can't just be that. I do not have diabetes yet and there is no possiblity of lyme disease because of where I live. I am open to any other suggestions, thank you.
