I am absolutely grasping at straws here, but I know we have folks with allergies, thyroid problems, etc, and we all know people who know people...so... After difficult child 2 was born 5 years ago, despite being c-section, I had the same problem with him that I did with my older son - bleeding that lasted well over a year before it stopped being constant, then 50-75% of the time for another year after that. My gyno thought I had endometriosis, put me on continuous birth control pills (shouldn't have a period at all on that), then did a laproscopy when that didn't work. He did find some endo, not a lot, but cleaned it up, etc, after the first year.. I was a month away from a hysterectomy after the second year when all of a sudden, it stopped. About 2 months before it stopped for good, my heart went crazy, my chest and arms and legs hurt, I was sick to my stomache and had diarrhea, and my heart was skipping beats and then doubling up on beats. husband dragged me to the ER and they sent me to cardiologists, etc, and it never happened again. (which is what the final autopsy report says my dad died from, by the way, instead of a heart attack like they initially thought.) All thru pregnancy, and since difficult child 2 was born, I've had chronic sinus infections from about October-March each year, and occassionally in the summer. I can not shake them. I was on antibiotics for a summer one when my heart went crazy, and its taking stronger and stronger antibiotics to kill the infections. Just before difficult child 2 was born, I had allergy testing done. I was mildly allergic to cats, dust, horses, and mold. My doctor sent me for more allergy testing after this last winter of infections and of the same 60 things I was tested for 6 years ago, I'm allergic to 55 of them, and all are moderate to severe. He also did a cat scan and my sinuses are 90% blocked. I can't get any doctor to look at all these things together. To me, they all sound hormonal, but I don't know what to ask them to look at or if I'm going to the wrong kind of doctor. The gyno wants to continue the pills or do hysterectomy if I dont' want to stay on them; I don't go back to the cardiologist; allergy doctor wants allergy shots, its all due to allergies... They may be right, but aren't hormones and your immune system fairly closely related? Is there something else I should be looking at instead of each individual thing seperately?
