Hi, there. Sorry if this is a long post. :)
For the past 10 years (since I was about 8), I have struggled with weight gain and inability to lose weight. When I hit puberty, I didn't start my period on my own, it had to be induced. I took birth control pills to regulate it, but when I stopped, so did my periods. That was 4 years ago. I also have a lot of excess body hair, facial redness, muscle weakness, insomnia, extreme fatigue during the day. I carry all my weight around my middle and in my face (despite everyone in my family being built differently). A few years ago, a gyno thought I had PCOS and tested me, my results being negative. I have since been tested for Cushing's twice, using two different tests, both being negative, as well.
I went to an endo and saw a nurse practitioner who told me I had PCOS, despite testing negative a few years ago. He tested me again. When I got my lab results, my testosterone, FSH, and LH were all in the normal range. I called and confronted him on this fact, and he told me to make an appointment with the actual endo. That appointment is next Tues. In the mean time, I want to know if any other ladies with PCOS had normal test results. My testosterone was 73, my FSH is 2.3, and my LH is 6.2, all normal, as far as I can tell. Does this sound right? Or could it be something else? He didn't even test my estrogen and progesterone. He also didn't have me fast like my gyno did the first time.
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
