Hope you can help me out. I'm a 22 year old mom, and I'm about 4 months postpartum. I was induced and had a very traumatic delivery. Ever since I gave birth I have had a lot of problems.
I feel like I can't breathe all the time and I feel sickly. Sometimes it flares up out of nowhere and gets really bad. All the tests I've had done come back normal (blood tests, EKG, chest-Xray). The doctors say I am fine but I feel terrible ALL the time! I've been on anti-anxiety and anti-depressants to try and help. The anti-anxiety (benzos) helped a bit, but my doctor won't prescribe anymore. But there is NO relief for my symptoms. It feels like there's something wrong internally inside my body, but it's hard to explain. It is a horrible feeling I have all day, everyday. I also have bad gastric reflux. I just want to feel normal again! One nurse said she thought I had dysautonomia. Another nurse said my body was probably stressed from childbirth and it would take about a year to recover. I sometimes wonder if the epidural was responsible. I eat healthy and exercise. I was perfectly fine before having my baby. Now my quality of life is horrible and I wonder if I will always feel like this! I have no idea what's going on inside my body.
Please help!! :(
