I'm trying to search anywhere for help but the doctor at this time. I don't have the money to go get tests and such. So I'll just go through whats up with me here.
For a few years now I've been having very very heavy periods, and lots of times for longer than 7 days. Just this past month, I started my period normally and it went away in 5 days, then 3 days later it came back VERY heavily..for a few days. That stopped and about a week later I got it again, not as heavy, but for another 6-8 days. I noticed that lately when things like that happen I logically get lethargic, but I've also begun to notice pitting in my fingernails. So far its just on my thumbnails.. it usually appears when I get my period and starts growing out afterwards. Should I worry? If there is a chance I may be anemic, what should I do about it? I have been told there is a type of anemia that runs in my mom's side of the family. I can't remember what its called though...is there a specific one or can tendencies for all be passed down through families?
