Help me please..I am a 41 y/o female. I have been to endocronologist, every ist you can think of.. I will start at the top and work down..My face from the chin down looks like a pizza, I can grow better facial hair then most men..my legs feel like they are in cement and my feet burn..My blood sugar fluxs from 90-166 with one at 220. i am so tired (but can't sleep 'cause of the legs) it has taken me 9 months to loose 30 lbs even though I exercise 30 minutes a day strech 10 and walk 15 min 6 days a week and hike 2 miles in the woods on sunday. I am on a 1300 low carb/fat eating plan for the last 9 months. my weight is 171 and I am 5'2. I was finally treated for gastroparisis by instaling a gastric pump last dec. I am constapated so bad that I have to take 2 extra strength exlax and follow that up with 3 6 mg zelnorm just to "go" I pee all the time. and now it's "let me run more blood test.Those blood levels are just not high enough for diabetes" Thyroid is great, I had a hysto. 20 years ago. iron is wonderful (even though I bruise like a bananna) Testostoran level was a tad high but not to bad. I have peed in a jug for 24 hours, had God knows how much blood drawn from, eaten radioactive eggs, and I am tired so tired of the run around. Has ANYONE heard of these symptoms. :eek:

Please help me
