I'm new here and I want to ask if these symptoms are related to PA. I'm 30 y.o., stay-at-home mom and I gave birth to my DD in June 2016. According to the doctor, I lost 65% blood, so I got iron solution injected three times.
Almost every day I'm feeling extremely fatigued, clumsy, confused and I also have anxiety, balance problems, brittle nails, dry skin, dizziness, dehydration (checked to my Gyn and he only said I should drink more water), blurry vision, tingling sensation on my face, muscle spasm everywhere, sharp pain on my muscle which lasted for few seconds, brain fog. It was horrible and I'm still breastfeeding, which makes it worse.
.I took an iron supplement for a month and I stopped because I thought I have no iron deficiency anymore. Some days I feel okay but some days I feel worse.
And then, I started to have difficulty swallowing in October 2016, 4 months after delivery. I feel like I cannot push food and liquid to my throat. It feels like my swallowing muscle weakens and it feels horrible. The difficulty swallowing mostly happens from the afternoon until night time. I went to a GP, ENT, Gyn, Neurologist and have done an endoscopy, EMG, head MRI, allergy test, blood test and they couldn't find anything. Sometimes if I'm starving at night, I eat my baby's food. I'm really desperate.
I was sent to hospital twice in March and August 2017 because of difficulty breathing and got a blood test and ECG done and they were all good.
I also did home test kit to check my B12 levels but according to them, my B12 is still normal (67 pmol/l) (German standard). My neurologist said that he wants to check my B12 again next week.
I don't know what I should do now. I cannot take care of my DD properly. I cannot do what I want to do. I'm fed up
I'm sorry for the long post. I hope someone can help me figure out what it is.
Thank you so much!
