I am a 36 year old woman. When I was 26 I was hospitalized for stroke like symptoms. They never found a dx. When these episodes, which lasted about five years, would start I would be extremely fatigued for a few days before then the right side of my face would paralyze and I had right side leg and arm weakness, severe. My right hand would also tremble. I was dragging my leg with me. It would last months and get somewhat better and come back. Sometimes I started out my day and no paralysis and then it would start any time of the day. It was not bell's palsey. I had every test known to man. No dx. I have recently been dx with hypertension and high cholesterol and was in the hospital in June for a TIA. last week I was dx through an ultra sound, no labs yet, that I have polycystic ovary syndrome. I was wondering if these could all be related. I am also infertile, and didn't know why until the recent dx of PCOS. No children. Went through all of the procedures, drugs, etc. Also staring in my early 20's I began having severe back pain. Higher up toward the kidneys. It radiates into my flanks and stomach. It does not feel like muscle pain. it starts after lying down and intensifies the longer I lay down. It is quite severe pain. I also have bloating of my stomach about three weeks out of the month. I am wondering if this could be an endocrine disorder other than PCOS adn the disorder could have caused my PCOS along iwth the other bizarre symptoms i have had for so many years. All of this and no dx, maybe it is related????? Help!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
