I have really bad low right hand adominal pain, shoulder tip pain, leg cramps, milk production (never breastfed, youngest child is 4), hair growth on chest and stomach and bottom, severe stomach cramps, tiredness, back pain. I seen doctor today who told me i might have polycystic ovarian syndrome, I had blood tests today and am booked in for ultrasound on friday, i can not find that leg cramps and shoulder pain have anything to do with POS.

  • If your Dr didnt check your prolactin level make sure thats done since you are producing milk. I cant offer much other advice. Good luck with your tests.

  • PCOS and Hypothryoridism and even Cushing's disease have alot of the same symptoms. Both Cushings and hypothyroidism can cause muscle pain. Hope this helps. Kiera
