I wish I could help you with a referral, but I live in Florida! I just wanted to encourage you to take the time to find a GOOD doctor. Not just a specialist, but one who cares about helping you. Take it from someone who spent too long with a doctor who didn't!
I have also had trouble with Metformin...my doctor eventually explained that you can take it in a lower dose and then gradually work your way up to the full strength. This really helped me tolerate it better. Taking it in the evening (in case you have some stomach upset side effects, at least you're home) with a meal also helped. Overall, I still find PCOS to be very confusing so don't be afraid to ask questions. The biggest thing that has helped me has been cardiovascular exercise and starting to lose weight. I also take high quality fish oil suppliments and tried acupuncture. I ask my doctor, talk to a good pharmacist, read reliable online medical information (WebMD.com), and talk to people here when I need to find out what others have tried.
Nobody is going to be a better advocate for your health care than YOU! Best wishes and we're all here when you need help!
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
