I have been recently diagnosed with PCOS. This is after a year of suffering with exhaustion, terrible mood swings, irregular periods and symptoms that I thought were maybe related to me going through the change of life early. Unfortunatley, I was misdiagnosed with everything from bi-polar to chronic depression and put on all kinds of medication that increased my symptoms making me have severe panic attacks, lethargy to the point of not wanting to get out of bed, etc. I have two little guys 2 & 3 years old. I do not want any more kids, but it seems that my symptoms have increased after the birth of my two year old (ie., high blood pressure, cholesterol, inablity to lose my baby wieght, etc.) I just started Metformin this week 500 mg and will go up to 1000 mg within two weeks. I just want to know when I will start feeling better. PLEASE CAN ANYONE LET ME KNOW HOW SOON METFORMIN STARTED TO HELP? I really need some hope here. I am having trouble taking care of my own two kids, have had to give up my job of 15 years, etc. I want some hope!!!! I would appreciate any support, information or help anyone can offer. Thanks, Amy

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
