Unhappy Feeling weird... could it be because of Birth Control?

Sorry, my story will be kind of long
I went to my Gyn dr last month due to having heavy menstrual cycles, and spotting in between my periods. My last period was on 10/1/12. I had a vag ultrasound done, and found out I have several cysts on both ovaries, as well as fibroids in my uterus. He says I am not ovulating, resulting on forming cysts. Well, he prescribed me on Provera 10mg bid for 5 days. While on them, I noticed I would get shortness of breath, and tachycardia. After finishing them, I started my "period" on the 3rd day (10/19/12)

Went back to see him this month to do another ultrasound. He says I still have cysts, (which grew in size) and the fibroids and said that my lining of the uterus was thickening again. So, he prescribed me birth control pills (Lo Loestrin Fe). I started taking them that same day and started spotting that night, and the following morning as well. By the 3rd day, I had started my period (11/8/12)..(Heavyy first 2 days) and lasted 6 days. But since Ive been on them, Ive been having shortness of breath, tachycardia (with minimal or no activity), anxiety, and just get weird feeling like if Im going to faint or something. I dont know if its a bad adverse reaction or if Im just overanalyzing things.
Has anyone else ever experience something like this?

This could be a side effect, or anxiety due to all of what you are going through. You need to call your dr, and tell them what you are feeling. They will know best

Thank you for your response I did actually call them this morning. They told me they doubted it was due to the pill, because it's such a Low dose, but still advised me to stop taking them, since I do have history of getting s.o.b and tachycardia with b/c pills. Hopefully these symptoms do go away

Re: Feeling weird..could it be because of Birth Control?

I'm also on Lo Loestrin and have the exact same thing! My gynecologist also prescribed it because I have cysts on my ovaries. I haven't mentioned what's going on to the doctor because it really seems to come and go and I know you're supposed to give birth control a couple months to see if the side effects go away. I had a feeling they'd tell me it had nothing to do with the pill anyway. Are you feeling any better not taking the pill?
