Leigh's Story

im not sure yet on my diagnosis.

i am a 36 yr. old mother of 3 children. 18 yr., 11yr, and 20 months. i've noticed after my 11yr. old i developed depression and what i thought was high blood pressure.

when i was pregnate with the 11 yr. old at 4mo. into the pregnancy i had major surgery to have 2 cysts on my ovaries removed, both the size of grapefruits. my daughter was successfully delivered 5 months later.

after the delivery i have battled depression. well about 6 months ago i started having vision problems driving and after my milk drying up 2 weeks after my 20 month old son was born, my breast started feelin heavy again. i mashed my nipples and to find out a yellowish dishcharge comming out of my breast.

i had my tubes tied, cut, and burned, but still went to take a pregnancy test. it was negitive. i have no insurance so it took 5 months to get an apt. at the community hospital.

i went last week to the doctor and he had plenty of blood test ran and has me schelduled for an inner and outter uterus ultrasound, a mamogram, and a MRI to check my pitutary gland. i am always thirsty, dizzy, have headaches, get tired real quick. not to mention my face has blown up so puffy, and i weight about45more pds. than i did at the delivery of my son. all my blood work shows is my thyroid is out of wack.

i am a stay at home mom now, and just wanted to here from anyone to see if anyone has had these symptoms. thank you all for allowing me on your board.
