Is there something wrong?

I have a very broad mixture of random symptoms, and I want to make sure that they are not connected.

1. I have no appetite whatsoever unless it is for sweets or something cold or wet. For instance, I won't eat bread because it makes my mouth feel dry. I have been drinking protein shakes and yogurt. This has been going on for over a year.

2. My lower back hurts. On both sides, at random times. I have had this occasionally (used to be if I ate lots of sugar at one time), but in the last month or two it has been happening daily.

3. Headaches. They make me throw up and completely stop my day. They are ALWAYS on the front, right side. Once again, these have been happening for years.

4. I used to get cracked skin around the corners of my lips, and it was suggested that I try to take vitamin B12 supplements. The supplements instantly cleared up the cracks, and I started to feel much better. Now, however, missing 1 or 2 days makes me very ill. I get extremely dizzy and my headaches get worse and are constant. This goes away once I get the supplements back.

5. I have been on birth control pills for several years now because my period (not long after they originally started when I was 12) were almost constant. I would be on my period for about 3 weeks, then off for 1. After several different kinds of birth control failed, I am on a pill that keeps my periods very regular.

6. Just general not feeling well. I don't have the energy that I used to have, and my motivation is lacking.

I highly doubt that these are all related, but I thought I would put everything out there. Many of these things have been happening for several years, and I am positive that something would have flagged. They are getting worse now, though. I go to a doctor in a couple of weeks, but I would like to have a little idea going in. Thanks!

Re: Is there something wrong?

FOr one thing, it sounds like you are anemic. It could be the cause of several of these things. You might call your doctor's office and see if you can run in for blood work (fasting) one morning about a week before oyur appointment. That way they'll hav the full results when you go in for the appointment. I always do that for my annual physical.

Sounds like you are having side effects from the birth control pills. They can cause many side effects. You also are having migrane headaches. They cold be from the birth control pills too. I would stop them.
