I’ve also stopped having my period for 8 months. pelvic pain and accompanied by fever and dizziness + frequent headaches on the right side of the ear and my headaches have been going on and often for the past 2 years.. And also my extended family has a history of uterine tumors (cysts). Hmm.. Guess what disease is this? Thanks in advance.
Hi Furukawa Keiko
Thank you for your question
First you need to understand, not all the complaints you experience are related. It could be that the conditions you experience are all separate complaints and are caused by different diseases. Second, seeing the number of complaints you are experiencing, I feel it is impossible to determine the possible causes of all the complaints you are experiencing without a physical examination of your condition directly and without carrying out an appropriate investigation according to your condition.
Complaints of menstrual disorders that you experience can be caused by many things, especially related to the condition of female hormones in your body. There are several conditions that may cause your period to be delayed (including your periods being stopped for a long time), for example: the use of contraception (the contraceptive pill or injectable contraceptives) which can change the hormonal balance of a woman's body; Disturbances in body weight (overweight/obese or underweight/malnutrition or associated with significant changes in body weight (poor diet, nutritional deficiencies); excessive physical stress; excessive physical activity or physical exhaustion; diseases of the brain ovaries and uterus (polycystic ovary syndrome); systemic diseases such as diabetes or diseases of the thyroid gland. If it is associated with the conditions you describe that your family has a history of uterine tumors (cysts) in your family, then you may have the possibility of experiencing the condition similar conditions. Lower left abdominal pain does have many possibilities, for example complaints in the gastrointestinal tract, urinary tract, or ovaries. So it is not always that left abdominal pain is caused by problems with the reproductive system alone, but it can still be caused by conditions other. Regarding your stomach that looks enlarged, this could be due to This is due to the accumulation of abdominal fat due to your increased weight, but it can also be caused by a certain disease that causes a buildup of fluid in the abdominal cavity (ascites) or a certain mass (lump) in your abdominal area. Given that it is still difficult to prove without direct examination, it must be examined directly by a doctor. In addition, it is necessary to carry out supporting examinations such as CT-Scan examination of the abdominal cavity and also ultrasound of the reproductive system (ovaries / ovaries and uterus) to determine the possibility of disease in your body. For headaches that last a long time and recur, there could be a certain disease that causes these headaches, such as migraine conditions, tension headaches (tension headaches) or cluster headaches (cluster headaches). Remember that fatigue conditions or strenuous physical activity can cause headaches, so you must rest and maintain your fitness. Under certain conditions, hormonal changes in women can indeed cause headaches, so it's possible that if you experience female hormone disorders related to your menstruation, then you can also experience this kind of headache. Actually, to deal with this headache, you can take headache relievers such as ibuprofen or paracetamol. However, if the pain persists and recurs as you are experiencing, then you should consult a doctor for appropriate treatment.
Again, your condition must be examined by a doctor directly and you need to carry out additional examinations according to your condition (on doctor's advice).
You should immediately consult your nearest doctor.
Hope this answer helps you.
