  • maybe iron is low, maybe your thyroid is messed up, maybe you are having blood pressure problems.

    Really, this is something you need to get checked out, there are many things it could be and all of them need attention.

  • are you sure its your period and not a miscarriage? Either way I would look into anemia. Loosing a lot of blood can cause that. See if you can get a blood test to check for anemia and your hcg levels.

  • You sound anemic. Take iron supplements and see if that helps.

  • Google "Community Health Centers" to find the master Web site of government-run health clinics that will see anyone, regardless of their ability to pay. You can drill down to find the location of a clinic near you.
