I need advice, I have NO clue what is going on.
Not sure what is going on.
But I have NEVER spotted between my periods. My cycle has always been 30-35 days. I have 3 kids. All vaginal births, no complications. I am 36 years old.
My period ended a week and a half ago. And two days ago I started spotting. First it was pink- light pink. Now it's a purplish/brown color and just small amounts of stringy discharge, but not in clumps... but every time I go to the bathroom and wipe there is at least one small string of brownish/purplish stuff.
I am also having mild menstrual cramping off and on and during my normal periods sometimes I have cramps and sometimes I don't.
For months now I have had this odd feeling/sensation in my lower right pelvic area that comes and goes-- some days it doesn't come at all. But I can actually feel a muscle contracting and it popping outward for just a split second.. and there is a sharp pain accompanied by it. Then it goes away. Today it happened right before I pee'd. I had a full bladder but I also drank a lot. I pee often only when I drink a lot and I normally do drink a lot during the day.
I workout as well... 5 days a week. But this tightening pushing of muscles that comes is only on my right side- like there is something underneath it pushing it outward for just a second. like a muscle cramp sort of.
I do have lower back issues as well, tilted pelvis, mild scoliosis, my hips are lower on the right side- not sure if that has something to do with it. But the mild cramping and the spotting I am having right now is what worries me. I am NOT pregnant. I just had a period in the beginning of March. It started March 7 and normally I am heavier the first 2 days then it goes to spotting, then I go a full day with NOTHING then I bleed a little again on the 5th day and I spot for a few more days. That is how my periods have been for the past year. But they come every month around the same time and they go away.
I started taking Wellbutrin 8 days ago. Maybe that is a cause, however the pressure type movement in my lower right has been there for a very long time, but only comes once in a while and there is normally a sharp pain with it that frightens me if I am walking or standing, but when I am laying down it will just tighten and you can see my skin raise a bit- like movement underneath off and on at times with no pain- lately it has been coming more often.
I had a pelvic exam last July and forgot to mention that to my doc. She felt everything though and said it felt fine and my pap was normal.
I also just recently started getting heat sensations in my legs, only in some spots and not others... it's so weird. I rub it because it comes on fast and it's like my leg is right by a fire. But only in certain spots.
I am taking more vitamin supplements due to leg cramps at night, and Xanax only at night because I clench my teeth pretty bad and now my left side of my jaw is lower than my right.
My insurance plan IS HORRIBLE and I only have 1 visit left until Next January with a co pay. I don't know what to do about this or if I should just ignore it until my next pap - like I said, my menstrual cramps are not severe, most of the time they are mild and on occasion during my period I will have they are more aggressive the first few days. And my back has been bothering me again which makes me think it's mimicking mild cramps.
I AM A MESS!! Any thoughts??
