PCOS maybe?

Postby vontinka » Tue Apr 21, 2015 8:31 am

Hey guys,

I'm new here. I recently had a episode of sever lower pain where I couldn't walk proper and ended up in the walk in then at my gp as they where going to send me hospital but I didn't want to waste time. My gp sent me for a ultrasound and then i got a letter back to see my gp again and found out both ovarys where consistent polcystic and one ovary was double the size of the other one. Suddenly it explained why I had been getting severe acne all over my body and greasy skin but I am having normal periods which are a lot heavier than usual and generally on time but lately they have been staggering a little between 6 days late or early. I have noticed a small patch of hair on my chest too but it's only minor but it looks like it's slowly getting worse and I tend to carry a bit of weight around my mid portion but I am only around a size 12/14.

I have had plenty of other symptoms too mostly anxiety and a mix of depression and feeling extremely run down. I've had tons of blood tests done but they all came back fine and I was told I don't have the syndrome I just have polcystic ovaries? I'm at my whit's end. I know something is off in my body and don't feel well with it at all and I don't have copies of any of my bloods to see if i'm borderline on anything as I know Thyroid can contribute to PCOS.

Thanks for any support & advice I need it I am so fed up with the symptoms! I am seeing a gynecologist for the first time ever soon will they check my bloods to see if anything is wrong as well?

Blood tests can be a bit hit and miss sometimes. If the pain continues then it may be worth getting checked out for endometreosis as there is a link between the two and pain is not generally a symptom of pcos. I would definitely say you have pco/pcos so low gi diet is the way to go and eating little and often.
