It's been about a month and I got my period a week ago. The first few days it was light. Now on day 6 it is really heavy. I feel like I have been bleeding for a month and feel so drained. I'm cranky and very short with my husband to the point where we are barely speaking because I have been so "mean" as he says. Is this normal? Is or was anyone else like this. I'm totally okay with the miscarriage. I know there was just something wrong and that it's normal. So is it just my hormones?

Then this morning i had a light purpleish brown period with a lil bit of tissue and that was it. ive been feeling really light headed and nautious for the past week too.

These included feeling very weak, shaking all over, light headed/dizzy,numbness/tingling on fingertips and toes, slight shortness of breath and chill. I felt like passing out, flushed. I figured it was from not eating so I grabbed a burger and it seemed to alleviate the problems. Well, it happened again around the same time of day a few days later. But this time, eating didn't help as much. Eventually the symptoms went away. My colleagues observed that I looked very pale.
Last time I had one heavy day of bleeding and I passed some clots and then it turned into a normal period. This time I've been bleeding really bad and I'm passing many many big clots. THis is the 2nd day and I'm a little freaked out. I'm waiting on my doctor to call me now but I thought you all could help in the mean time. Is this normal? I've probably passed 15 big clots today, some of them were palm sized. I've been feeling light headed and overall weak.
I was on the pill, and decided to change to Loestrin at the end of July 2009. I had a normal period in June, July and August. The August period was light, but i assumed this was because of the change of birth control. I also spotted all of August and September, but the doctor assured me this was because my body was getting used to the birth control. So I had a very very light period at the end of September.

It helps with the panic attacks, but I have this heavy headed feeling that just won't go away. It makes me feel like I can't do anything and need to stay in bed all day. I've had CT Scans, X-rays, EKGs, Blood work every test possible and I am medically fine. I've been trying to cope with this the best way possible. I do feel alot better then I did 6 months ago. I have noticed that my anxiety and panic only comes in late October and stays until early February.
Honestly there could be a million different reasons for your period to not be that heavy and to feel light headed. If you are worried about pregnancy then take a test but even if your period is abnormal if you got your period you are most likely not pregnant.

Hello Everyone, I m/c on July 8th. On Aug. 6-9th I had a very light period. I'm not for sure, but isn't your first period supposed to be fairly heavy after a m/c? I know everyone is different, but that seems a bit odd. We have been ttc and again, I have all the symptoms including a protruding tummy (I show way early and have with my previous pg's.) I'm hoping all the symptoms are not in my head...
Hi Taylor, I am 20 study Biology and I have experienced almost exactly the same thing as you descirbed. I used to have it whilst asleep, and wake up as if from a nightmare, but the fear was something different, much greater. I couldn't describe it to anybody as I couldnt find the words that would be appropriate. Just now I was lying on the sofa watching Topgear, and it was a scene showing a car driving on a country road, with very peacefull music.
Definitely call and ask. You could develop anemia pretty quickly at that rate. Are you feeling tired and light-headed? Keep up on your fluids (not coffee or sodas) and take a multivitamin to help out a bit. Hope you feel better soon.

If you are pregnant, you wouldn't get your period. Some women think they get their period while they're pregnany, but its not actually a period. That being said, you're probably not pregnant. Have you taken a pregnancy test? That would definitely clear things up for you. Are you ttc?
I am a young (25) female that was diagnosed with Social Anxiety disorder years ago. I have been on Paxil and Risperdal for years and both have worked well for me. In the past few months I have been experiencing other health issues..I have a hypothyroid and my period came and then never went away. I have been working closely with my OB/GYN to fix this problem. Last monday I had a DNC and they administered a Depo-Provera shot to get the bleeding under control.
-Tightness or restrictive pressure feeling in the middle of chest -feeling sensation of a strap across my forehead sometimes -constant Dizzy light headed feeling -very light headaches -my energy level fluctuates from day to day. some days feeling really bad and other days feeling not so bad (I never feel good!). -I always feel fatigued / tired. -my arms and legs feel numb/tingly (this is not major *apparently* as I have had a check up with my Doctor).
However I was on my period when the surgery was done. I started light bleeding on Jan 2. On Jan 6. I experienced some really bad cramps, and heavy bleeding, passed a couple of clots. I contacted my Dr. on Jan 7 and was called in to be checked. My Fibroids where inflammed and kicking against the surgery. I was placed on some hormone pills to shrink the fibroids, today is better than yesterday.
I crawled into bed, it took about 30 minutes to get home, and after about 5 minutes of lying down, with no warning it felt as though my heart did a flip in my chest, I immidiatly felt light-headed, i jumped out of bed ran to the kitchen got some water and began sipping slowly thinking this is an anxiety attack, but not taking the chance and taking 2 asprin just incase. it took some tea, and it took an hour until it subsided enough for me to sleep.
Hie, for the past 2 weeks i have had this heavy headed feeling, sometimes at the back of my head, sometimes it feels like the whole head. The feeling will be there constantly. Throughout the day, sometimes i feel throbbing pain at both sides of my temple. Apart from that, my eyes focus seems to be getting weird - don't really know how to explain the feeling, but it feels like my focus expands and then shrinks. My eyes also feels tired easily since this whole episode started.
