Have you had your thyroid levels checked?

I had my throid checked and the Doctor told me all was fine, I keep going back to the Doctors who cannot understand why I am tired all the time. I really do feel for you as I know just what you are going through. I get up in the morning, take kids to school, do housework and then fall asleep until picking up kids again. I then go to bed early and have no problem with sleeping. My Doctor cannot understand why and I am getting pe-ed off.

I am exactly the same. Although I'm not sure if it part of the pcos?? or something else. I was diagnosed with pcos a couple months ago and the so called specialist was awful. He did not tell me anything about it. During a recent life insurance medical for my mortgage they found sugar in my blood so I am now going for tests for that. The tiredness gets me down so much though. I get in from work of an evening and dont feel like doing anything!

Sometimes when I leave work I feel like I could literally just lay down on the street and sleep, I then proceed to make myself feel bad as 'I should be able to pull myself together and do more!'
I get so tired all I can do is sleep :cry:

Perhaps the tiredness could be something to do with insulin resistance?

I found that this was the cause of my constant tiredeness and lack of energy along with the effects of being overweight - the extra effort I had to put in to do anything whilst lugging loads of extra weight around all the time.

I've found following a low gi/low fat diet has helped me lose and maintain the loss of more weight than ever before and has also given me more energy, because it helps to reduce insulin resistance. When eating low gi foods I also don't get the tiredness and urge to eat more carbs to boost my energy, a couple of hours after eating that I used to get.

I get this sometimes - had to get a colleague to drive me home once as was ready to drop! I find eating little and often helps, if I have this and eat a handful of almonds or some museli then it generally goes away. Regular exercise helps too.

Im the same.. but when I went to docs on Friday.. she said oh your ok!!! (yeh thanks for telling me how I feel luv) then said you should make sure you eat straight away in the morning (yeh like we can all do this as soon as I wake up) and then gave me some pills to loose weight.. but I still feel really sick in the morning and sometimes through day if I have not eaten for ages.... I can sleep anytime of the day, even if I have had a good 8 hours sleep at night.. arrrrggg docs!!!!

I hope things start to improve for you now Theresa.

At least it was good that they were doing that clinical trial about PCOS, or by the sounds of things you would still be struggling to find out what was wrong with you.

Have you been given any advice about diet Theresa?

If you are not already familiar with it, low GI eating was originally developed for people with diabetes and lots of us PCOS ladies seem to have found the principles helpful whether or not things have progressed to diabetes - lots of info on the losing weight and healthy eating board.
