I gave birth 6 months ago, and since then I've had the following problems, and instead of slowly getting better, they seem to just be getting worse:
*My periods are insanely heavy (soaking a super plus tampon AND a maxi pad every hour for at least 6 days), they used to be very light
*I am cramping so badly I end up doubled over, or throwing up from pain - never had a cramp in my life before 6 months ago
*I have not had one solid bowel movement
*I am bruising like a peach! I can simply bump into something and end up with a bruise that won't go away for weeks - I wake up every morning with bruises I cannot explain.
*I can't fall asleep, once I get to sleep I'm golden, but I will lay in my bed with the lights off until at least 5am every night wide awake
*I'm having a hard time focusing, when normally I'm a very focused person
*I'm sore EVERYWHERE.... 90% of the time I feel like I just walked away from a car accident
*I've been having random dizzy spells
*I've been getting sick for no reason, I feel fine one minute, I'm throwing up violently the next, and then I'm fine again.
*I've lost WAY too much weight. I don't excercise regularly, save for random walks around the block. I eat healthy, and steadily throughout the day eating only a large meal in the early evenings, and usually in the mornings. I've eaten this way my entire life, I have not changed my eating habits one bit in the past six months. My appetite has decreased lately, but I still try to eat the same. I'm 5'9", I gave birth to an 8lb 2oz baby six months ago - I now weigh 114lbs. I haven't weighed below 118 since I was in 9th grade!
*if I have even a minor scrape or cut it won't heal for weeks. I accidentally scratched a bug bite raw nearly a month ago, and if I scratch it at all it will start bleeding -still.
I'm just not sure what to do here. my insurance got switched recently and my new PCP can't get me in for another month, but I can't take much more of this! At least an idea of what is going on would help ease my mind, hopefully. Thanks.
