So my symptoms started about 3 1/2 years ago with hair thinning, infrequent menstrual cycles and extended cycles. Then about 1 ago now I started have fatigue episodes and upset stomach along with constipation and diarrhea episodes. I also notice around the same time I started having heavy flow and very abnormal cycles. Sometimes I start out spotting dark brown blood or end the cycle this way which last 1-2 days then in the middle I pass huge blood clots and bleed enough that I have to wear a tampon and a pad at the same time due to what I describe as blood burst. I can go through a large box of tampons and pads in less than a week. I was told I have heavy cycles and was directed to have a uterus ablasion (sorry if I spelled that wrong) I was told by the women clinic not necessary and given 3 months of birth control to regulate my hormones and cycles. Well as of last October now I have been having tingling sensation in my right arm and sometimes down my right side of my body into a throbbing pain in my right shoulder, back and chest. Oh and my cycles are still heavy but regular with the 2 days of spotting and 3 days of heavy bleeding and 2 - 3 days of spotting. As of last month went to ER due to symptoms nurse thought I was having cardiac problems. ER ruled that out and gave me anti nausea medication and Ibuprofen and sent me home. As of this past friday my symptoms are back along with lack of appetite, nausea, tingling in my right arm and down that side of my body, fatigue, dizzness, and the throbbing pain in my upper abdomen, chest, back and right shoulder. I have also started the spotting today and I noticed blood in my feces and this was prior to actually starting spotting. This isn't the first time I noticed blood in my stools but chalked it up to my menstrual cycles. I feel like I am falling apart or going crazy. I am a 42 year old mother of 3 that has had a tubligation 17 years ago. Oh my blood work last month came back all with in normal limits, radiographs of chest and EKG was all normal along with heart enzyme snap test was negative. PLEASE HELP.View Thread
