Just thought I would throw out a quick question. I have developed a series of (medical) symptoms over the past 12 months that I thought some of you might be familiar with and might be able to give me some things to research. Over the past 12 months I:
Have not had a period in over 12 months and have a real increase in facial hair (all blonde and nearly transparent, but still heaps more than normal), And in the last 6 months I have been losing my hair (head hair) and (having just gone through a mild Australian summer) I have found that I have absolutely no tolerance for heat, I can barely stand any temperatures above 23 Degrees Celsius (74ish F). And, as anyone who is overweight knows, I am pretty much exhausted all of the time, as in I could sleep for 16 hours straight, be awake for 10 hours and be exhausted again (this is the extreme that has started happening lately, but obviously can only happen on my one day off)
I have spoken to my doctor (GP), but have only really admitted the problems in the past month (I was basically blaming all of my problems on my weight and thought it would be selfish to waste the doctors time, when I thought the response would be lose weight), to my surprise I have been sent for a huge number of blood tests which have shown so far:
*I have no of the hormonal markers for PCOS
*I have not got diabetes or insulin resistance
I am waiting for results on Thyroid hormone levels, but I'm not sure what else I or the doctor should be looking for?
Any suggestions would be appreciated
