I have been lurking & posting on the other boards but just scrolled down and found there was a Birth Control board *yay*
So I was on Norgesterol (sp?) for about 10 years. I stopped on May 21 and had my "bleed" & then just didn't start another pack. First month off was ok, had some bloating/cramping around the 2nd week off, figured I was ovulating but since we are NTNP I am not charting or anything.
I got my period on the 16 of June, so 26 days later. Very light bleeding for 2 day followed by 2 days of brown discharge. Now, for the past week or so I've been experiencing some crazy symptoms of lightheadedness, dizziness, off balance, exhaustion. At first I thought I was pregnant so I took a test (negative), went to the dr and was diagnosed with vertigo and had blood work done incl. an HCG test which I belive was neg (he said everything was normal on my voicemail so I'm assuming) ...
My question is, would 6 weeks off the pill lead to me feeling this way? It's really affecting my life, I can barely get off the couch I'm so tired. I'm sleeping normal, eating normal, attempting to keep my exercise routine. It comes and goes but the "off balance" feeling is almost always there, my legs feel like they are jello. The doc gave me Meclizine for the dizziness feeling which I haven't really taken yet because I hate meds.
This is also causing my anxiety to go out the roof ... I'm freaking out at what is going on.
