Hi! My name is Robin and I was diagnosed with PCOS and hypothyroidism June 2008. For a year and a half, I have tried everything to lose weight, only to continue gaining weight. I was happy to hear that there was actually a reason for my weight gain.
My doctor put me on Metformin and Levoxyl, but I took then a little less than a month and was having chest pain, high blood pressure, and swelling. I stopped taking them a week ago and am using different herbs to treat the PCOS. I am kind of experimenting to find out what works best. I am trying to keep a daily journal of my symptoms and such so I can see if my PCOS is getting better.
