If someone could help me i would be very gratefull, long story short, I have been having pregancy symptoms for a year now, yet at no point have I ever been pregnant (no children, one failed pregnancy 6 years ago). I started puberty at age 3, however i was given hormone injections to halt this (I dont know what kind, sorry) until I was around 11, at which point i stated menstrating. Since last March, I have had a number of symptoms which are listed below, in addition to having meningitis in June (i caught it from a collegue, i dont think its related)

No Periods - since March 08
Migraines, less frequent now, bi-monthly
Bleeding Gums - recent (past week, & tooth crumbled) - despite good dental hygine
Itchyness - constant, all over body
Difficult/Unable to sleep - varies
Carpal tunnel (on one occasion, lasted aprox 8 hours, then disapeared overnight)
Cramps in legs - weekly
Hair falling out - daily
Dry skin (& scalp) - past month
Lactating - daily
Pains in joints (mainly elbows)
Sickness - better, now periodic instead of every day
Toilet more frequently - past two months
Smells different (can smell popcorn/meat when not present) - constant
Increase in cup size (D to FF/G since summer - despite loosing weight)
Moodswings - according to others, more apparent to me now - have got worse
Back pain - since March, mid to lower back
constipation - regular

If anyone could shed some light, i would be eternally gratefull, have been to breast clinic, no lumps. Family history is bowel disease on mothers side, mental issue (skitzophrenia, ocd etc) on fathers, again doubt this is related, but you never know. I have also had numerous blood tests for hormone levels, all are normal. I have been on POP for 6 months, COP for 5 years prior
