Please go in and get your iron level checked. It sounds like you are severely anemic. Anemia is a very bad health condition and will only get worse without proper treatment. Find out what number your iron level is, and learn all about how to raise it up. You'll need supplements and a change to your diet, and possible a blood transfusion. Sometimes it's even caused by a cyst in your uterus, which needs to be surgically removed before you can get better. However, that usually only applies to women who have had children. But you won't know until you go in and see your doctor. Please let us know how it goes at the doctor's. I've also had this problem before, it's very common and nothing to really worry about with proper treatment.

Please, please, please speak with your doctor. I am glad whatever diet you're on helps your epilepsy but clearly, other issues are going on.It could be diet related or something completely unrelated.

Talk to your family Dr about this. If you don't have an Ob/Gyn, ask for a referral to one, and also talk with your Neurologist and a Registered Dietitian. If you don't have a Dietitian, ask your Dr for a referral to one who specializes in the seizure aspect of your health. You may be able to tweak your diet a little to reduce the problem.

Make sure that ALL health professionals are communicating with each other. You can ask that they all be cc'd in any communication and include yourself in that list, then you will know that the communication is there.

Good luck,
Kris

Have you talked to your OB/GYN about this issue ? The diet you're doing may help your epilepsy, but it's causing issues with your menstrual cycle.

Have you talked to the doctor who prescribed your special diet ? Do they know you've been having problems with your period ? If not, you have to tell them. The Spark community is definitely not qualified to answer your question.

If you don't have an OB/GYN, ask your doctor for a referral. But in this case, you need a professional medical opinion. Any information you receive from the Spark community will be totally anonymous and anything you are told by a well meaning member could be damaging to your health.

That's why you should start by talking your personal physician and an OB/GYN.

I was wondering if anyone else had their problem and did they solve it? I am only have a 3-4 day break between the end of a period and the beginning of a new one everytime I diet. Its putting a real stress on my relationship. The diet eases my epilepsy so I cant change it, any help would be grateful
