Customer Question

I'm having nausea, abdominal swelling and occasional abdominal pain, spotting for days before my periods, small red spots in various spots all over my body, and fatigue. Any idea what it could be? I've done various tests and a colonoscopy, I had low ferritin and at one point high C4A, but other than that, everything has come back normal
JA: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?
Customer: I start spotting 20-22 days after one period ends. Pretty regular, I would say. My abdomen hurts, I get joint/bone pain occasionally too. In my hips, or gluteus area
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Oh I have chronic yeast infections too, though those seem to be getting better, with some major diet changes, after almost a year and a half

how old are you?

most common cause of nausea, abdominal pains below the left ribs is from excessive stomach acid production.

stomach acid reducers can help decrease stomach acid.

sodas, gluten allergy, lactose allergy, poor diet, alcohol, fried foods, oily foods can cause gas and bloating of your bowels.

you may need to go on birth control pills to help your spotting and menstrual cycle to be more regular.
