Had miscarriage, skin breaking out and alot of coursework. Ferling very tired and emotions are everywere could it be stress?

Yes: It sounds like it. Consider talking to a therapist, taking some time for yourself, and even consider an antidepressant if you do not see improvement in your symptoms within month or two.

Spacy feeling, head tingels n sometimes sensitive 2 light from a mild concussion last yr n recently had miscarriage. Is this playing an affect on sym?

See your doc: I would start with your primary care provider. They may be able to help to narrow down your feelings of spaciness and detect any associated neurological findings. He/she may order additional tests such as MRI or ct of the head.

Possibly: 1st, check a urine pregnancy test. If that is positive, see your ob. He will likely test a quant hcg, (blood test). He may repeat that test in 48 hours and may even do an ultrasound. All of these tests will be use to determine if you have a good pregnancy. Best of luck!

Recovering from anemia after miscarriage. I have been getting painful headaches everyday in the back of my head and neck. Is this normal? How long?

Recovering from anemia after miscarriage. I have been getting painful headaches everyday in the back of my head and neck. Is this normal? How long?

See below: Headaches are not normal. The cause is not easy to determine without additional history and physical examination. These may be due to tension and one way of getting around tension is by exercise. You may wish to start exercising, first thing in the morning. Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.

Since miscarriage, I break out in a rash right before and after my monthly. It itches really bad and welts up then bruises. Isn't ezcema, what is it?

Rash: Your history is interesting but I am not sure it is related to the miscarriage. You do not describe where the rash is, but you need to have a doctor look at it for a proper diagnosis. Some individuals have cyclical hives with their menstrual cycles, and that may be your case.

I had a miscarriage 3 months and now I have developed a rash on my stomach, hands, feet, legs, everywhere! Could it possibly be puppp? Also 13 days late.

I had a miscarriage 3 months and now I have developed a rash on my stomach, hands, feet, legs, everywhere! Could it possibly be puppp? Also 13 days late.

Not Pupps: Pupps is a condition that occurs in the late third trimester and it resolves spontaneously almost immediately after delivery so this would not be a cause of your current rash. A dermatologist or primary care doctor would be a good place to start of evaluation. If you are late for your period consider doing home pregnancy test.

I've had frequent head aches and a dizzy feeling now for 6 days. Could it be because I've recently had a miscarrige.?

I've had frequent head aches and a dizzy feeling now for 6 days. Could it be because I've recently had a miscarrige.?

Maybe: Headaches and dizziness can result from many different things, from dehydration or lack of sleep to bleeding, among others. If you are continuing to have a lot of bleeding (greater than 1 pad/hour), you should go to your local er to be evaluated. Otherwise, make sure you are taking care of yourself (i.e., eating well, sleeping well), and follow up with your doctor if you continue to have the pain.

I lost a large clot been haven pregnancy symptoms head aches an cravings have I had a misscarraige?

Take a test: The first step is to do a home pregnancy test. If it is positive then a miscarriage is possible and an evaluation of bleeding during pregnancy should be done. If the test is negative then this is not likely a miscarriage.
