I am feeling so hopeless I am wondering if anyone out there can help?

Here are my symptoms:
-Fibroadenoma's
-Breast pain
-Irregular periods since April/May 2010 (I have have 4 periods since April)
-Each period is 3 days long or less, and are either extremely heavy or very light
-Doctors have ruled out PCOS

The Drs seem to be brushing this off, but to me its just NOT normal to such sporadic periods, tumors and breast pain (they assure me the pain is not related to the tumors).

Any ideas?

  • Have you had your hormones checked? It sounds like your hormones are out of balance. I have read that an increase in testosterone will cause excessive hair growth. I would go to a doctor that is willing to do more than just the regular thyroid tests. Get everything done including tests for Hashimoto Autoimmune Thyroid Disease. Good luck.
