Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
Have you been in a lot of stress lately?
Some but no more then usual lol
so whats the usual :)
haha... probably would be considered a somewhat unhealthy amount..I have PTSD so I stay somewhat anxious...good days bad days...its that time of the month and that is also a stressful time for me as mine are quite heavy
how are your periods?
For how long?
pain isnt too bad but they have been heavy for 5yrs now
since my last c section
Do you regularly check your hemoglobin and routine blood tests to make sure your hemoglobin and complete blood counts are okay because you are bleeding a lot
They did an Iron Study on me about a month or so ago..I was quite anemic and my actual Iron level should have been between 50 and 100 or something like that and mine was at 22...so it was pretty low..I just started Iron supplements a week or so ago
hemoglobin was at 10.8
That is a little on the lower side.
I would like that you should get this treated, I mean the heavy bleeding if you are not getting it treated already
Plus your symptoms that you are mentioning the chest symptoms are most likely either due to anxiety or premature menopause
you may be nearing your menopause prematurely and a lady can have a variety of symptoms like what you are describing when near menopause
menapause can cause a buzzing sensation like that?
It can cause a large number of symptoms
a small list is given in the link that i just sent you
yes I see it...43 seems so young for menapause lol
I understand but your heavy periods suggest that you may be entering there, the way to confirm it is to have your FSH and LH hormones checked
Plus I would like that you should also have your thyroid function i.e. TSH tested if you have not had that done already
because a malfunctioning thyroid can also cause period problems
yeah they check that like twice a year..its been totally normal so far
but I will ask about the hormone testing on my next visit
any more questions?
no I dont believe so...I really appreciate you talking with me
