I am a 36 year old female. In March of this year my blood pressure went from normal/low to 200/110. I was put on Micardis and Toprol because my pulse rate was on average 80-90 or higher at rest. A month later I was diagnosed with high cholesterol. A month or so after that I was in the hospital with visual disturbances and my left hand went numb, diagnosed with probable TIA. Many blood tests including sugar were done and normal. Six weeks ago i was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome through an ultra sound. No labs were done. Last week i was diagnosed with diabetes. High insulin levels and they want me to start glucophage. The doctor seems to think it is from the PCOS but all of these started so suddenly and hypertnesion was so severe. My hands are swollen. I can't wear my rings. I do have problems with facial hair but that has been for a while now. I had problems with pitting edema in legs and swollen eyelids which is better but occasional flare. In the last six months i started have muscle weakness in my arms/shouders/upper back. I don't believe it is from medication. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. I think something may be going on other than the PCOS but the doctors are trying to find out. They just keep giving me more pills. I find it odd to go from nothing to all of the above in a matter of months. I am also not able to have children so if that is from the PCOS that means i have had it for many years so it seems I would have gotten the other conditions a lot sooner than i did.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
