I feel awful!

A couple years ago I got tired of feeling awful so I went and had a ton of tests on because I get Dizzy, shaky,my heart races and have nasty cramps. Well they couldn't find anything wrong with me.


Fast forward to after my loss. I went to the check up after and tried to get him to look into what the HECK is wrong with me. I was totally ignored I was told just to come back as soon as I get my BFP and I should go on birth control to regulate my hormones. :( I feel awful today and I just want to know why and for someone to help me so I feel better and hopefully have a successful pregnancy next time. DH thinks I need to see a doctor, but I am unsure where to even go?

From a fertility perspective I am not sure what this could be but what you are describing sounds a lot like something I went through. I had unexplained fatigue, shakes, out of breath, extreme cramps. I always seemed to pass that finger prick test for iron but I applied for the Peace Corps about 10yrs ago and I had to do much more extensive testing and they found that I had almost no iron stores. I get IV drips of iron about every 2 years and B12 injections. I feel way better. My red blood cells are smaller than average so I still get tired faster but I am way better than I was 10 yrs ago. (I went on bcp to help with reducing blood loss during AF but since I stopped a couple years ago to ttc my iron has been harder to maintain since AF is super heavy for me.Perhaps your loss caused an extreme drop in your iron?)
Maybe ask them to do a more detailed blood test of your iron stores. The doctor that finally figured it out for me is a Hematologist/Oncologist. I hope they can figure out what is affecting you soon. I know it's no fun to feel that way all the time. :(
