From original poster:
I'm less concerned here with the lack of menstruation
, and more concerned at the severe and abnormal symptoms that I'm experiencing. This has been happening to me for quite some time, but this particular month, the symptoms are markedly more severe and debilitating, and the lateness of menstruation is growing. What I'm looking for is a direction to go in. As a student, I'm limited financially as to what resources I can access, and would like an opinion from a professional source as to whether I should start with an orthopedic specialist, a gynecologist, or if this should be considered a vascular issue with relation to pooling in the veins. I'm also aware that an MRI
could open doors for me, but again I am a student, and my budget is limited.
