Patient :So I've been on the depo shot since October and since the I have been sexually active. I have a history of acid reflux/gerd and indigestion. I also have a family medical history of severe kidney stones as well as fibroids in the uterus. I've been having crazy symptoms. What's happening?
Symptoms: Weight gain (especially in the stomach, seems more bloated than fatty), intense lower back pain (occasionally spreads up to the center of my back), occasional pelvic pain, a pinching feeling behind my belly button, thick dark brown discharge, random heart flutters, high heart rate, a feeling like there's something behind my right lower rib and occasional muscle spasms there, and random nausea.
Thank you for writing to us.
You may have PCOD based on the symptoms you have described. PCOD has some of the symptoms you have described. It has these symptoms:
Cysts in ovaries
Irregular heart rate sometimes
You need to see a Doctor to get a USG done of the pelvis. This will help you to diagnose it. Treatment of PCOD is by taking OCPs or surgical excision of ovary if it is serious.
Hope this helps you. All the best.
