Conditions with symptom: 'anaemia'
Hi I'm 14 years old and I started my periods when I was 9 and they were fine, not too painful and not really a problem for me but the stopped suddenly when I was 11. 4 months ago, they started again but that month, it went on for 10 days and of was extremely painful and really heavy and with blood clots. Every no the since then, they have been long and painful and heavy and no pads Or tampons seem to be able to stop the blood showing up on my clothes. I went to see my go who sent me to see a gynecologist thinking that I had anaemia but the gynaecologist said it was due to the stress at school (because I Go to an all girls grammar school). But I have been weak all the time, no matter how much sleep I get. And im loosing a lot of weight and I was underweight to begin with. And I am getting more colds and health problems no matter how many vitamins I have. And I found rashes and bruises from no where on my arm. Is it anaemia or something else?! please help me cause it is embarrassing
I am 19 years old and am always tired all the time. I have been to my doctors but my blood test showned that I do not have anaemia. I have very dark circles under my eyes but do not understand why because I have enough sleep every night. This is becoming a big problem now because I'm falling asleep a lot now, even in class.
i am having the same problem. Iv benn uber tired lately and i dont know why. \i go to bed at 10 and get up at 8. thats 10 hours of sleep and shouldnt that be enough?? ive fallen asleep in class everyday in at least 3 classes. what should i do? help :(
have you checked your thyroid? i have underactive thyroid and im always exhausted. also sometimes when you get your iron levels checked it could show normal but one of the components or w.e that make up the iron could be extremely low.. my doctor was telling me about it...
I'm 18 and have had mouth ulcers for over a year and a half now. I always have at least one and as it begins to feel better a new one arrives. I've been to the doctor a few times who did a blood test for anaemia after my second visit, but as I'm a young carer trying to move away for uni in September I think she wrote it off as stress, but things haven't been constantly stressful over all that period. Can anyone help me figure out what this is!!!
Have you been checked for coeliac disease? This is how it started with me and it took 13 years to get a diagnosis. (that was in 1988 when it was less well understood). Once diagnosed and following gluten free diet no more problems with mouth ulcers and general health flourished.
This is the same advice as Diane. i suggest you get checked for coeliac disease. it worked for me.when i was ten i had many mouth ulcers and when i was diagnosed and started a gluten free diet most of them went and i fell much happier!
I'm 17 and I've had heavy periods ever since starting my period and I also get one or two blood clots throughout my period. I have also been feeling very fatigued frequently, having headaches and having occasions where when I get up, I feel so dizzy and feel like I'm about to faint. Is it possible I could have anaemia? I don't want to waste a GP's time.
Hi I have had long standing anaemia, lung problems, heart problems all unexplained. my toe nails have suddenly all died. The nails are all brittle and sort of built up. I have tried nail infection stuff for over 6 months but still remain the same. Any advice please?
Hi, I am 23 years old and have two children. I had a natural birth with both of them, but since my sons birth nearly 3 years ago, I have been described as a 'mystery' by the doctors. I have severe lower abdominal pain, which is on and off and I am also in a lot of pain during sexual intercourse. I have had blood tests and a laparoscopy which have come back clear apart from anaemia. I am always tired, which makes my uni work and looking after my children alone very hard. I have a coil fitted, but have started getting periods again over the last few days after not having any since February when my new coil was fitted. I am fed up with being told it is 'psychological' and just want a proper diagnosis :(
