I'm going to the doctors and really don't know what to say...

This is going to sound crazy.

At the end of august I was late for my period, only by a week, when it did come it was heavy, with lots of clots and pain. Very similar to when I had an early miscarriage, I'm my head I knew this was a possibility but kind of ignored it.

Since then I have been bleeding every 10-14 days for around 3 days.

I've also been run down, spots, mouth ulcers, aches and pains and often high temperature. I don't know if these are linked. pregnancy tests have been negative and we are very careful with condoms

This past week I've been very nauseous, on and off, felt so bad on Saturday I stayed home from work (I worked through the sickness all week) and was sick a number of times. By tea time I felt fine, had tea, glass of wine, early night felt ok. By 6o clock yesterday morning I was up being sick, temperature high etc. I only ever get sick when I'm pregnant, so for peace of mind did another test, was inconclusive as only one line but in the wrong place.

Last night I started bleeding again, heavy and lots of pain. So thinking it's just period related.

But it's 10 days since my last bleed.

I don't even know what I'm trying to say because it doesn't make sense.

Once again I'm throwing up. DP and DS have had a bug, but with me it's coming and going.

The doctor is going to think I'm crazy going in with a list of ailments like this, I'm convinced it's something to do with my periods/bleeding.

Does any of this make sense?

Definitely go in, not crazy at all. Could be endometriosis or something?

See the doctor. Describe your symptoms as you have above. I can't see anything crazy about thinking they might be linked.

It's not your job to make sense of it, that's what your Dr wend to medical school for! Just present the symptoms to him/her and see what they say.

Perhaps it might help to write down the list of symptoms from your post, to make sure you don't forget anything?

It doesn't sound at all right, and you're definitely right to get ti checked out. Hope you feel better soon.

Thankyou, I just feel a bit silly going in with a list of ailments.

But I will, I have an appt just before lunch, when I told the receptionist she booked me in to an emergency appt. Which rarely happens round these parts so glad I don't have to wait.

Endrothingy (I'm useless at spelling) is a thought, never considered that. Think
I should stop trying to self diagnose and see what the doctor says blush

Good luck santas , aufaniae is spot on ,but I do sympathise it's hard explaining complicated stuff to GP .
Fingers crossed your GP is on the ball ,let us know how it goes .

Thanks all. I said everything I wrote here. She has referred me for bloods done and to POAS. She hasnt really hinted as to what she thinks it could be. She said the pregnancy test is to rule that out. I can't see how I could be after all the bleeding!

Fingers crossed it's something easily sorted smile
