My baby is 1 in June. He is the 5th and last child. I had 4 daughters before him and after having my 4th my health hasn't been right. I have had unexplained symptoms for around 5 years ( my daughter is 5 years and they started when she was 4 months old). I went to the doctors when my daughter was 6 months old, had tests and they came back normal apart from vit D which was very low. I had treatment for that symptoms still remained. I had irregular periods that's came every 41-45 days which were never like that before. I have been fobbed off over the years and never found a cause.

Anyway fast forward to my 5th baby who is 11 months. I am still breastfeeding him around the clock ( he feeds several times a night and day!)
He was breastfed until 6 months exclusively without any top ups of any kind but my periods still returned when he was around 3 months old. THey have been irregular coming at various occasions with spotting on between. One period took 61 days to arrive but I had spotting in between but not actually a period.
I had a period 1.5 weeks ago and I'm now spotting. I'm sick of it. I went again to the doctors the other week, she examined me and sent me for a scan which didn't show nothing. Then the doctor doing scan recommend do blood tests which I had and my TSH was normal! I'm just stressed. Now I have pain in my right breast shooting deep burning pain.
What do I do next? Can I ask to be referred to an encrineologist even though my TSH was normal because a lot of my symptoms fit with thyroid issues.?
