I've been to many doctors who find it hard to believe I am still suffering from extreme side effects from Depo Provera, the birth control injection. I got the shot mid December, and since then my life has been reduced to the confines of my own home. I used to exercise 6-7 days a week and lived on my own. I had a personal trainer and a strict diet. My symptoms such as fatigue, dizziness, tight, knotted and stiff muscles, constipation, etc. have taken away my freedom, independence, and will to live. I have been on the brink of suicide from the hopelessness. No doctor can help me in alleviating symptoms or determining when I will feel normal again. Does anyone, from personal experience or knowledge have any advice or answers? I desperately want my old life back, when I had all the energy and confidence in the world. I am 18, feel like I'm 80, and have not been able to enjoy life. I am 100% sure the symptoms are solely from the shot, as I had no side effects or health problems, not the slightest complaint prior to getting the injection.
