I am 18 years old and I grew up with not going to the doctor or dentist very often. My parents don't have health insurance and hardly any money. When I went to the doctor when I was 16 after begging to go I told the doctor that I have had my period since I was about 14. But in the last year it had started slowing down to where I only got it once every couple of months, I have very bad acne, and that i weighed about 190 pounds at the time. She took some blood and told me that my hormone levels were good and my metabolism was functioning like it should. She told me to use birth control. Well I went on birth control for 5 months and only got my period twice. I had to stop because I didn't have the money to keep buying it. Well since then I am now 235-240 pounds, still get depressed, have migraines out of the blue, get moody, and my period only comes about once every 8 months or so. I am not pregnant and their is no way I could be. Lately I feel really hungry but when I start eating I feel really full right away.
I have proof that until I hit puberty I was fine. I only weighed like 120 pounds and I was very active.
I am still active now. I walk or bike everywhere I go. I don't have a car. I am also in marching band. I get jittery for no reason and i can't focus. I go to a counselor and my depression is very low right now. They don't know what to do either. I have bad teeth too. I brush twice a day and use mouth wash but I have yellow stains and my teeth sometimes hurt. I am also getting my two bottom wisdom teeth.
I don't know what to do any more. I am tired of being tired and moody. Please give me something to go on.
