I have brought this up to drs before and they all tell me its just because I'm nursing my daughter but seriously! She's almost 2 and we've cut back to once a day now. My weight has just kept going down. I'm 5`6 and I barely weigh 100lbs. My eatting habbits aren't fantastic but for the most part I think that I eat pretty well. When I told the dr last time I was at like 110lbs about 8 months ago or so. Its been a pretty slow decline in the weight loss but I'm still loosing. They said that once I stopped nursing it would go back and that 110ish (possibly lower-it was a while ago)was fine for my height. I even pointed out the chart that they had in the room saying that low weight for a woman of 5`6 is 115lbs. They still didn't care!
Now I have a very hard time staying warm unless I'm asleep in my bed with heavy-warm blankets wrapped over me. The cold seems to come from my core rather than my extremities in. As soon as I start to get cold my entire body starts shaking like its convulsing or something. It hurts so bad!
We unfortunately don't have insureance right now (we're working on getting it again) so I really can't go to a dr just yet but seriously I think something is wrong with me!
Is there anything anyone can suggest or anything I can research for when I do get to see a dr?
