Does anyone have any medical advice? What's wrong with me? Anything?
Topic: Does anyone have any medical advice? What's wrong with me? Anything?
October 18, 2019 / By Lina Question:
For the past 6 months or so, I have experienced a drastic increase in really really big/bad bruises. For instance, Friday night I was standing perfectly still and felt a sharp pain just below my left knee. I pulled up my pants leg and saw a bruise beginning to form...it's the size of bar of soap. Today, I was standing in the kitchen and felt a pain in my right ankle...I looked down and I have a bruise the size of a quarter forming.
I am also experiencing extreme fatigue no matter how much rest I get. I eat healthy foods (organic milk, fresh fruits, whole grains, etc.) and I receive plenty of exercise...we have 2 horses, 3 dogs, 2 cats, and 2 rabbits...when I am caring for the animals.
The other "symptoms" are increase in hunger, increase in urination, and an increase in my migraines. The migraines are becoming more severe and are lasting for 24-72 hours at a time. Maxalt, Emitrix, or Advil help me cope with the migraines, but they are too severe for that to help at times.
(Just because)~I am 24 years old with 2 small children.
We are waiting for our insurance to come into effect so "going to the doctor" is not exactly an option...at least for 2 more weeks. Any medical advice is greatly appreciated!
Found out today that our insurance will not be effect until Nov. 26th.
I am not on any type of diet really. I eat red meat sometimes.
Thanks to everyone for their help! My husband's answer is "it could be cancer". Grrr that's his answer everytime I'm sick. :-P

Not a medical professional, but it sounds like something to get checked out. The random bruising is worrisome alone, but the headaches and fatigue point to iron deficiency. Do you have a diet that omits red meat and other proteins?
Get to a doctor if the symptoms progress quickly. Urgent care or ERs are not too expensive for peace of mind.

Do you take iron supplements for your anemia? If so that is what is probably causing your constipation and therefore your bloating. At your age, colon cancer is exceptionally unlikely. However the anemia MAY be caused by an ulcer in your intestines that can cause some of these symptoms. I'm a 19 year old female and have severe anemia and some of the symptoms your listing, my doctor referred me to a gastroenterologist who performed both an upper endoscopy and colonoscopy. These both came back fine and I'm still undergoing further investigations for my anemia. So I assume that because of your age, you also would be fine. Go to the doctor and tell them your symptoms so that they can take appropriate action. Because of the anemia they may refer you to a gastroenterologist also.
Hope this helps and good luck :)
Feel free to email me with any questions.
no matter, if you're insured or not, the only reasonable advice for you here is: go seek medical care today! you need at least some blood tests to rule out that this is something very serious.
please, for your own sake and the sake of your children, see a doctor! nobody here can help you effectively.
good luck to you

Try taking iron tablets to help your blood clot and reduce the amount of bleeding. Also make sure you are drinking lots of water as dehydration is a large cause of headaches and migranes. Make sure to take a multi vitamin everyday. That is probably the only thing you can do without a doctor.

if you are not being abused and have not fallen that you know of
a medicine such as asprin or blood thinners (anticoagulants)
infection that causes the buildup of toxin in the blood or tissues (sepsis)
a bleeding or clotting disorder such as hemophillia, von willebrand's disease, thrombocyctopenia, or another less common bleeding or clotting disorder.
other disease that affects clotting examples include chronic inflammatory diseases such as lupus
liver disease such as cirrhosis
or maybe diabetes that makes you pee alot and have most of the syptoms that you list but either way go to the doctor get checked take care

If it gets even worse, go to the hospital. A catholic one. They have special discounts for people who don't have insurance. This does not sound good hun.
Good luck. I hope everything works out for you.

Get Valerian Root, I don't think you'll get a prescription for Cannabis for your situation, honestly.
Valerian Root sounds like it would work in your case, look it up.
