Started NuvaRing in Nov 2011 after I began lactating for no apparent reason
I feel like I am completely dull, lack emotions, and personality. For example, during a sudden death in the family I felt no emotional response and confused why. I feel like I don’t know who I am anymore and like my body doesn’t work right at all, like it’s not mine. I feel as if my digestion doesn’t work and my stomach just fills up and fills up. I am beginning to feel lost and hopeless with this. I do not have panic attacks, feel deeply depressed, or feel unusually stressed. These symptoms have persisted for years (some longer than others) and have begun to deeply affect my life the past 2 years (I have failed 2 college classes for being kicked out due to absences for doctors’ appointments, oversleeping, and lethargy in class, as well as recently racked up medical bills after fainting episodes began).
I have seen 2 Cardiologist, Neurologist, and Endocrinologist. I have also recently been seen in the ER after a fainting episode that lasted longer than usual, and wore a TruVue heart monitor for a month. The only things identified by these doctors are: sinus tachycardia and high cortisol level.
Also, I was a primary bed-wetter until 16 years old for reasons unknown.
