Hi I am a 23 Year old female who has been having an extremely hard time to get a diagnosis about what is wrong. When I was 9 years old I got my first menstral cycle, they were fairly regular. Ever since I was 13 and had the surgery I have had low but not under the standard thyroid tests basically borderline. As the years have past I have been getting more and more symptoms and no one can seem to help me is there a special type of endocrinologist or other doctor to help me. I am at my last nerve and I dont know what or where to go from here. I live it the Chicago-Metro area or even Milwaukee area. I need help desperately. Please help me go in the right direction.

On top of all of this I have Fibromyalgia. There is a extremely STRONG history in my family of thyroid disease/problems. My mother had 1/3 hot, 1/3 cold and 1/3 normal. My moms Thyroid blood tests all came back normal like mine but once they did the iodine test they found out that it was the problem. I have tried 5 endocrinologists in my area and I am getting really frustrated with their basic nothing is wrong with you or the P.C.O.S. story! Which fits some symptoms but not all I have low levels of testosterone, which you dont get if you have pcos.
If anyone has any doctors, clinics or hospitals to go to or any ideas I would truly appreciate it! I am extremely desperate! :confused::confused::confused::confused:
