I have a serious question about postpartum depression....I am 10 months post partum and I have been extremely ill physically mostly and sometimes emotionally. I really need to know can this illness make you feel so sick on a daily basis .
Extreme fatigue
shortness of breath
muscle weakness
off balance
moodswings/ depression/anxiety
light and heat sensitivity
cold extremities
low blood pressure/ low temp
tingling on scalp sometimes lip twitches sometimes
I do not have a thyroid problem/ no lupus/ all blood work fine ,no hepatitis
MRI was normal ,echo was normal
Hope I find out whats going on soon its driving me crazy and making me more depressed by the day
thanks maebae

Hi Maebae,

This sounds like depression with some chronic fatigue. Have you mentioned it to your doctor. You could probably use some help to feeling better.

Do you have pain in your muscles? This is the way that I felt with fibromyalgia with the pain. But was very fatigued and week. But the doctor's have to run all these tests to rule everything else out. Then they do a tender point test to see if you have it. I am just saying this because your symptoms reminded me of mine. I am not saying that I think you have it.

Try walking. exercise makes you feel better and can give you some energy. Also relaxation like meditation. Or yoga.

Anyway I hope that you feel better soon

Hugs, Karen
