Hi, a very late reply to this post but before I was diagnosed, I became increasingly tired. My brain became foggy and the exhaustion became so bad, it felt like I had glandular fever all over again. In my case, I had insulin resistance that is now being treated with metformin. This is a recognised issue relating to PCOS and you should ask for a fasting glucose test, as well as thyroid function tests. I see you are on metformin, so they should be rechecking your hormone levels periodically anyway.

The pain could be endometriosis and if it is making sleeping difficult, this could also explain why you're tired. xxxxxx

Hey, I believe it is, for me I am quite chubby, so weight loss helped alot with tiredness, although I still struggle getting to sleep sometimes!

But as someone else mentioned it could be due to insulin resistance, diabetes, extreme hormonal changes etc etc! A blood test will definitely be beneficial as to pin pointing the cause :) I really hope you get it all sorted out :)

I also get extremly tired and its not easy I have a busy lifestyle but I still try to get enough sleep and rest when I can. Going to my Gp later on today to see if I can get some prescribed iron and may be ask for a few tests and blood tests to be taken. PCOS can really get on your nerves also trying to lose two stone,good luck everyone

Hi me too!
Better since started low GI/GL diet though, even drove back from Norwich at 1.30 am on Friday without fighting to stay conscious! First time in ages! Also feeling harmonious during the day. I was wondering if its something to do with pcos, massive bags of rubbish!
Was really struggling at about 11 am at work, we buy rounds from coffee machine and I was having cappuccino it has sugar in it anyway, also my dietitian has told me that the powdered milk is made with sugar! So even tea & coffee isn't any better, now I am bringing my own and I do feel loads better. Wondering if it is up and down sugar levels!?

Modern world and pcos don't mix!!
