Hi Everyone!

I need help. Something is wrong with me, I'm just not myself. Here goes:

I had an m/c 6 weeks before having my daughter who is now 7. I got pregnant with my second in 2006. I lost weight the whole pregnancy, ate adequately, didn't over do anything.

Right after she was born, i started gaining weight. Not out of nowhere, I did eat and no excersice.

After she was born, I never had cramps during my period ever again. I always did ever since I was 14. But after 8 months and still no cramps, I noticed a very light period until my second day where I would bleed/clot heavily especially after excercise or lots of running around. The next day, it would be gone. It seems as though it would try to get out all at once and then clot.

So I went to my ob who found my thyroid levels were 11 when it was supposed to be 5 so I went to an endocrinologist who said I had pregnancy induced hypothyroidism. No synthroid but I did go back to find my levels were at 7 instead of 11. She said to stay off the synthroid until my symptoms come back.

I hadn't had any of the bleeding episodes until about a month ago when I did LOTS of running around.

I have been diagnosed with panic/anxiety disorder and have them only in certain situations. I am not housebound and have found helpful tools to keep me going.

Well my question is with the hypothryoid. They say your hair gets dry and thinning. I have the opposite, oily hair. so is my skin, not dry, I am more on the oily side. they said cold intolerance, meanwhile I am always HOT not cold. Also, body temp. I have never gone below 98. Sometimes i am at 99. The only thing i do have is the occasional heavy bleeding.

I am sometimes down or irritable. Tired but not severly (i do have small children, LOL)

Just wondering if there is something else besides hypo. that I am being confused with.

Here are my symptoms:

Clotting and absence of cramps since my second was born (19 months)
more anxiety
bad nausea a few days after period
"just don't feel right"
very FOGGY
forgetful, brainfog

nothing is very severe, except for the clotting.

Any help would be appreciated!!!!!
