I want to know about what proper test I need to get to be diagnosed with PCOS and what I need to look for in a doctor. I was diagnosed but I am finding out she did not do some real important test on me. I know I have high cholesterol and tryglycerides and high blood pressure, but I am also wondering if anyone would know of any good doctors to go see. I was told to go to a Reproductive endicrinologists but I am struggling to find one with a good reccommendation and who really understands PCOS. I know I have it because I have no period, I gained 100 pounds in 2 years, I was already 55 pounds overweight when I did gain the weight, I have facial hair and I am blonde even my eyelashes but the facial hair is dark, I have some skin tags and discoloration in my thigh area, I crave starches and sugars I get sick If i do not have them nad I get sick after eating them and I have a blood sugar monitor and my blood sugars do get high but my fasting blood sugar has never been over 120, I also have headaches and alot of pain in my neck and back, I feel real depressed, I am so exhaustred and I can not think or focus, and my vision gets blurry. I also have no health insurance and my hubby only makes $1,000 a month and we are just broke. The OBGYN nurse put me on Provera which is making me feel horrible. I guess I feel hopeless. She did nothing but a pelvic exam on me and checked my Blood Pressure and then diagnosed me with PCOS. I also can not lose weight and when I exercise my heart rate gets up to 240 BPM and I get dizzy and faint. If anyone here is from North Alabama and maybe about not over 360 miles from Florence Alabama I would like to know of a good doctor to go to please, and the necessary test I do need. Thank you.
