Prolonged periods

Hello,
Ive been having prolonged periods over 3 years now. Wonder if there is anyone who could help me, my symptoms are:
prolonged onset of period, painful heavy regular periods (lasting about 12 days)
sensitive to cold
Hashimotos thyroiditis
lactose and wheat intolerance
intolerant to coffee and alcohol
chronic cystitis
eczema
feeling down and sad
weak neck
need for fresh air
sensitive to draft indoors

I have found information about wheat causing hashimotos thyroiditis, so now on strict gluten and dairy free diet, feeling a lot better but my periods have not changed yet.

Please would you give me some advise on what to do and how to treat this condition.

Kind Regards,

Kristel

Prolonged regular periods, I usually have about 4 days small bleeding and then it nearly stops for a day and after that my normal period starts, which lasts 6-7days on top.
Also Hashimotos thyroiditis, Ive found information about gluten intolerance connected to thyroid problems, after going gluten and dairy free about 4 weeks ago, started having symptoms of hyperthyroid and decreased my medication to half (natural desiccated procine), my symptoms didn’t go, so I stopped taking thyroid medication completely. I was originally only taking the smallest dose of medication which was about 54mg. Been feeling better after stopping medication and gluten free, less brain fogg, clear head, hair is not falling out as it was before, better skin and nails. However my period was again long, stronger than before and very painful.

10. Since how long are you suffering from each complaint
About 8 years ago when I stopped using contraceptive pill, I started having spotting 1-2 days before my normal period, and now 3 and a half years ago started having proper bleeding instead of the spotting and it lasts about 4 days, it decreases for a day of no bleeding or spotting and then after that I get my normal period which is extra 6-7 days. In total it lasts about 12 days.
I took contraceptive pill again couple of years ago, it didn’t agree with me and I stopped taking it.

It affects my daily life when having strong period, especially when doing my job. It affects my mood and energy levels.

19. How does it feel like?
I feel hopeless at times, I try to find answers on internet as I don't believe in curing with pharmaceutical drugs. It feels like an endless battle.

24. What are you showing by that gesture of your hand (Habits or Actions)?

25. Current and previous remedies/medicines you are taking or took in the past?
I have not taken pharmaceutical thyroid medication, I took about 6 months a herbal supplement for thyroid from Megafoods, I felt really good when taking this, but changed to dessicated porcine as I thought this would be more suitable before or during pregnancy (I took this medication about 3-4 months).

Uncompleted university degree, after taking contraceptive pill 8 years ago, lost ability to concentrate, got really depressed and could carry on.

I work in a hectic office, most of my day answering phone calls, working on computer, and leading a big team. Noisy and no day light.

29. Desires, likes and dislikes for food
I like eating bananas, I don’t really mind any food.., I have healty diet, and try to have as much organic products as possible, when eating meat I usually have chicken or fish, I eat pork or cow or lamb only occasionally (maybe once a month), I also eat vegetables..
I cant have cold food as I start feeling cold instantly, so I don’t have often cold foods or drinks, When eating cold salat for example I have it with hot tea to keep me warm.
I also use olive oil and coconut oil when cooking, and stay away from bad fats and caffeine.
As mentioned before I am intolerant to coffee and alcohol, black tea, dairy and wheat. I noticed being intolerant to coffee and alcohol also about 3 years ago. I havent consumed coffee and alcohol over a year now.
Food sensitivity test which was taken year ago also showed intolerance to some fish and sea food.

30. Name of foods which increase your problem
After eating sweets I get moody, irritable, I try to stay away from sweets as much as I can, usually just have fruits (but also not too may)

31. Mind-behavior, anger, irritability, hurry, impatient…and so on.. How are you different from other persons, public speaking or not , you can describe all of the details about your behavior, love and affections.
I dont like speak out in public, being in the centre of attention. Dont like public events, talking to strangers. Generally shy. Prefer to do everything in a very high standard, sometimes tasks might take longer because of this.

Winter, autumn

I dont know which side of the body is affected, however, I do feel right side of my body is generally weaker, for example my right eye is more short sighted than the left, when I had eczema in childhood, it used to be more on the right hand than left etc.

36. Color of the secretions/discharges e.g urine, stool, sputum, Saliva etc.
Sliva normal, see through, urine sometimes smelly (when havent had enough fluids), I think my digestion is a bit slow, but taking spirulina supplement daily and this seems to make going to toilet regular.

For Females Only

37. When is the period during the month approx date? Any monthly cycle issues? Regular, early, late, before problems, after problems, pain, any other discharges?
Period is regular, 29 day cycle, but lasts in total about 11-13 days. My periods are heavy and painful. My period moves every month a little bit forward as it is 29 day cycle, so it is not always during the beginning or end of the month.
On the first day of spotting I experience strong PMS, and am irritable until bleeding stops.


38. Are you pregnant? If yes, please give pregnancy start date? Any current issues?
I'm not pregnant, but thinking about having a baby soon.

Hope here is enough information,

thanks you
