  • oh i just did a long post to you and it didnt work ive noticed my fingers are beging to change shape my nuckles are larger and my fingers are bending. get doctor to test you for rheumatoid arthritis. That can cause many symptoms. Are you still deficient in B12? Are you testing now okay for that? B12 deficiency can cause a ton of different symptoms. Ive also read if one is deficient in one of the B vitamins.. one may also be deficient in other of the B vitamins. So I suggest taking a good vitamin B complex. I have Vit D deficiency myself and one thing Ive found from that is that most doctors dont know much at all about Vit D or about how it affects the body. By searching online in the past, Ive found out that that can affect the body in many different ways too eg calicum can be affected as Vit D helps calicum absorption etc So if your deficiencies arent properly treated and fixed.. Maybe they could be causing your symptoms. I also suggest taking a good general multi vitamin too.. as you could have other deficiencies which you arent aware of. If one has one, its more common to have others. I also have PCOS and with that, like most with PCOS.. i used to get very bad period cramps and pain. A doctor put me onto 2000 mg calicum per day (due to a study which said it helps PMS symptoms). That calicum has fixed my pain and cramping. So maybe that is something you can try too. (it took a couple of mths before it started working.. but Ive gone to severe pain, to none at all cause of that).

  • PCOS is linked to rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Your should get checked out for RA. If your doctor questions this link, show him/her this: http://linkinghub.elsevier.com/retrieve/pii/S0049017202701108
