Unhappy low temp, hypothyroidism, flu?

i wasn't sure where to post this, i have hypothyroidism that is being treated with 100 mcg synthoid. i am also on 2 anti depressant medications. for the last 2-3 weeks i've had an overall feeling of being run over by a mack truck. no high temp though. i've had diarrhea, and vomiting. I'm not pregnant i've done 4 pregnancy tests, three different brands, i had my depo injection on December 13th.( my daughter was just born on 7-3-09) I've been bleeding for 8 days now. before my last pregnancy, my periods would last 4 days max, i would have minor clotting, and very minimal cramping. Since last Wednesday, i've been cramping so much i've had to use a hot pad, and even that doesn't always help. my bleeding is very erratic, i go from the light pink blood to the dark dark red in a matter of hours. the clots are normal for any of my periods.

so what the heck is wrong with me?? my body temp is 95.4-95.8. i've taken it 6 times in the past 4 hours. normally i run 97.3. i'm crampy, nauseous, and just all around feel like crap.

Re: low temp, hypothyroidism, flu?

Sounds like you're anemic (iron deficency anemia) from the heavier than usual period. Maybe you should see your GYN, or at least a family doc, and get your red blood cell levels checked.

Having you been craving weird foods, like crunchy things, ice, etc? Here's an info page on iron deficency with other possible symptoms:

And congrats on the little one!

Re: low temp, hypothyroidism, flu?

It may be worth investing a few dollars to buy another temperature gauge - just in case
the one you have is not precise and give you more anxiety.
