I feel terrible!
by Chantel Harp
I'm not sure who to address this to. I am curious who is writing all this information. I feel like I have some solid answers to problems that have plagued me since I started having my period at the age of eleven.
I am a 41 year old female that has Always had an issue with Pms. It has been progressively worse as I have aged. I took bcp's for at least 15 years. I have been through the "bio identical pellet " treatments,that were very expensive and not a lot of good. About 10 years ago I started having irregular bleeding. I was sent in to have an ultrasound and learned I had fibroid tumors. It was a watch and see thing. The pelvic pain was constant. I was referred to a doctor that specialized in fibroids. I told him about my mid cycle depression , constant pelvic, water weight ,migraines,major blood sugar problems,yo yo weight gaining,and just so many problems its hard to even list. He told me that I was too young (37) to have my hormones tested. I knew that I had hormone imbalance. He ended up doing a hysteroscopy and removed one fibroid. There was one that remained. No change. . I still had pain. It was a quality of life issue at 39 and I chose to have a hysterectomy. My surgeon ended up being very difficult. She insisted that I keep my ovaries. I was up in the air on this. My main issue is that I have always felt that the (my ovaries ) have never worked. I deferred to her expertise and kept them. I was had been taking prometrium for a long time but my dr insisted that I stop it and just let my ovaries work. In a very short time I started to have a return of pelvic pain. I had an ultrasound and I had four ovarian cyst. They were not there when I had surgery. I am still having constant pelvic pain,major depression (am on 60mgs of cymbalta,spironolacgone,bydureon,and metformin. I have now been diagnose with type two diabetes. My endocrinologist believes I have pcos. Oh yes I forgot I am also taking liothyronine. I have so many issues my bed side table looks like a pharmacy. I just want to have a good life. I have always felt bad. I have ordered your pcos vitamins and the cream. I am at the end of my rope. I spent half the day crying. I have zero energy. I am praying that these things will change my life. I would appreciate any input in my case. Also who are you?
