you should talk to your doctor about getting tested for H Pylori bacteria in your stomach which can cause bad smell from the body.
you should also have a breath hydrogen test to check for small intestinal bacteral overgrowth condition.
dry mouth can cause bad teeth and gum infection and bad breath as well.
Would any of these things explain the excessive night sweating and low moods? Also falling asleep is a worry, I am normally energetic but when I get in from work I fall asleep regularly even befor putting my son to bed.
you should have your estrogen levels checked as well.
low estrogen can cause sweats and low moods.
what was your thyroid hormone level?
He just told me it was normal and my bloods were on the lower end of normal.
you should get your iron and ferritin levels checked as well
and make sure your TSH level is between 0.3 and 3.0
you need your B12 and vitamin D levels checked as well?
I have been taking B12 since I stopped eating meat and eat extremely healthy so should not be lacking in anything
are you still having your regular monthly cycles?
Yes and moderate to heavy bleeding
you might need a gyn exam as well to check for vaginal bacterial vaginosis or vaginal fungal infection.
when was your last gyn exam?
This started around the same time or a month or two later after abortion if that is significant
your female hormones could be coming back to normal after your abortion and this could cause your odor as well.
He did a gun at the very start of the testing, maybe march
This was over a year ago, should I not be back to normal?
if you are having excessive anxiety or panic symptoms, this can cause excessive sweating and odor as well.
The door is not from the vagina
excessive anxiety can cause dry mouth and poor sleep.
I had thought of that, I just notice it from getting dressed after shower so not stressed at that point in time
are you passing gas?
Yes, more than usual at times
you should ask your doctor to get testing to check for H Pylori bacteria in your stomach.
What is this?
you could have bowel allergy like lactose or gluten allergy which can cause bad gas odor.
H Pylori is a bacteria which can live in the stomach and cause worse stomach acid and bad odor of the body.
Again, something I had thought as I went through a time of being constipated then dioreah, I cut out gluten for a while and then cut out dairy for a while but again no real change although I am not constipated anymore
Would this cause the other symptoms too?
H Pylori can cause increased stomach acid and upset stomach symptoms.
and ask your doctors to check your iron and ferritin levels.
