Hi, I'm a 35 year old female. I have been having strange symptoms for quite a long time. For the past couple years I have been having problems with my period (cramping, pain...) this was getting gradually worse. I went to see the GYN and she put me on tri cyclen lo. The cramps don't seem to be as severe but my flow is heavier with clots. Now I'm having problems AFTER my period. There seems to be a patterns, it goes like this:
I get my period with cramping/pain, lasts 4-5 days
After my period I feel very ill for up to 2 weeks, symptoms: dizziness, nausea, anxiety, loss of appetite, upper abdominal pain under the left rib cage, pinching pain on the lower right side and low grade fever (99.4-100.2) which lasts the whole time (1.5 - 2 weeks)
I cannot do anything for those couple weeks after my period, I'm sick and drained. I stay inside and don't go outside at all. When my 2 weeks are up I feel back to my "normal" self.
Thanks for reading
