Hi Wray, I am having extreme problems and don't know where to turn. I have had extreme menses the past 2 months. So much so that March I enterd the ER with symptoms which they thought were a blockage in the heart.
Turned out it was severe anemia, not just low iron, I didn't have enough hemagloben to carry oxygen to sustain body function. I needed a blood transfusion (4 units) and still my hemagloben was just above critical low. I don't believe in just being cut up without knowing what the cause of the problem is. It seems as though most doctors think women only need estrogen. I think I may have too much or maybe l have low thyroid hormone. I have gained 15 lbs over the last 12 months and my skin has become dry in addition to almost bleeding to death.
How can one find out, are there tests? And when you find out, are there doctors who take it seriously?
