How do I know if this is it?
I am 32 years old and have 2 children. While I was pregnant with my second child I had experienced terrible spider veins, vericose veins and horrible leg pain. I went to my OBGYN and they said they couldn't do anything for me. As soon as I would get out of bed in the morning to put my feet on the ground I would be in horrible pain. They couldn't figure out what was wrong.
Now 2 years after having my children I still have leg sensitivity. I had the vericose veins removed and some of the spider veins but I am still feeling leg pain and lower back pain (they just ache). My PMS symptoms have always been bad but now they are worse. I have a wierd pressure feeling below during my first couple of days during my period. Almost like I have to push out a baby. It is very hard for me to stand. I get extremely fatigued and I crave food like crazy. My mood swings are horrible and I don't even want to be in my own skin.
My OBGYN thinks the pressure feeling is endrometriosis since it runs in my family but they can't be sure unless I go in for a test. They want to put me on birth control and they say that will stop the issues. Birth control gives me instant spider veins!
I am at a loss. I feel horrible. I eat very clean, excercise every day and I still feel awful. I dread getting my period because I feel so bad during that week. I went to a nutritionist a long time a go and she put me on hormone cream and I remember feeling like a million bucks.
I am not sure if this is what I need but I am willing to try anything. How do I know if I need the cream and how much? where do I get it?
