Ok, I posted a thread a couple of months ago, but I can't find it now. Anyways, I'm going to listed my symptoms again and give you guys an update. I would really like some opinions/ suggestions.
Intolerance to Cold
Diarrhea (no matter what I eat)
No periods since stopping Depo August 2006
I had a lot of suggestions of something related to my thyroid, lyme disease, and maybe PCOS or endemetriosis. Most recently, I've seen a Urologist who thinks my uti problems are related to my "grave lack of estrogen". The new special gyn I saw 2 weeks ago, thinks all my problems are related to the depo. He advised me the breast discharge is normal, My labs are normal, and it could take up to 18 months for the depo to wear off. I wasn't very happy when I left his office and I pretty much had made up my mind I was going to live with my problems and not go back to another dr. Then on Thursday, I woke up, started getting ready for work and I was fine for about 5 minutes. Then I suddenly, heard a loud buzzing sound and my left leg became weak and I fell. My left arm and leg both were really weak. I fell and dropped several things trying to get ready. So, I'm not a stupid person, but I am extremely exhausted with drs. So, I didn't seek immediate medical attention. I went to work instead. We have two drs on staff at the insurance company I work for. So per my boss's request one of them came down and gave me the look over. He suggested I seek medical attention. So, I called and made an appointment with my neuro, because my PCP always passes the buck to someone else. Before I made it to the neuro I threw up 3 times. I got really scared at that point, because I never throw up. My bf went with me to the dr and he was freaking out once he saw how sick I was. The neuro did an exam and then sent us to the ER. My bp dropped 15pts from laying down to standing up. He said I probably needed fluids. While in the ER, they did the usual blood work, CT, and EKG. As usual they gave me the "you are too young to have these problems" (I'm 26) and I as usual wanted to say, well damnit I do have them, now what?! After giving me fluids, I could stand, walk albeit wabbly, and write again.So they sent me home to rest with no explanation. I was just told I had low bp due to being dehydrated. To be honest, I'm not really sure how I got dehydrated. My bf thinks that I have "situational anorexia" because I've been so afraid to eat. I think it's a possiblity, but there are also a lot of other possiblities too. So my question to the forum is what do you think? If anyone does think it's anorexia, please send me some links. I'm really interested in trying to take my food in-take. Thanks!
