I am 22 and I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 19. I have been on birth control since I was 16 years old (and it masked my symptoms until I was 19 and tired of taking meds). Now, I am suffering from random things and I am determined to find the underlying cause of my problems. I am a senior in college, premed, and I am tired of doctors not looking at the overall picture when treating me.
Depression/anxiety IBS Jaw surgery because my jaw was growing to the side Sleep apnea Septal/adenoid surgery for sleep apnea Nightmares every single night Exhausted all the time - I could sleep forever if I had the time Decreased concentration Joint pain, always cracking and stuff! Lower back pain Knee pain weight gain Random stomach pain after eating sometimes.
I probably forgot something.
What else do you all have besides PCOS and have any treatments helped??View Thread
