    Thumbs up Pcos

    Hey, Welcome to our group....

    PCOS can cause you to be fatigue and sick to stomach....When you get the cysts on the ovaries that come every month it can make you feel like you have the flu....I get sick all the time with cysts that get to size of golf ball, and the doctor is like lets just see if it will go down on its own....In meantime I am in so much pain....It can make you throwup...I was throwing up vile which is the worse.....I am doing better now, but I hope that does not come back anytime soon....

    Please check out my website support group at pcos.meetup.com/196/ if you want to join my support group you are more than welcome too....I am looking for people from Oklahoma or Tulsa, but I am going to try to do some of it online...Right now I am doing a disscussion on Screaming to be Heard...Please check it out....Hope to see you there....

    That is good to do, but also research symptoms of PCOS on websites pcossupport.org is a good website

    When my PCOS symptoms get worse or seem to be bothering me more, I seem to get sick more. I am tired a lot also but it's worse depending on what other symptoms I am having. I rarely have cysts anymore but anytime I am slipping on taking my met or eating high carb/sugar, I feel more tired than usual.

    Alot of Cysters with PCOS also have insulin resistance. If you are IR, the excess insulin can can cause alot of symptoms like fatigue and make you feel sick to your stomach. If you haven't had your insulin levels checked it would be a good idea to ask next time you go to the doctor.

    One thing that helped my fatigue was taking a B-50 supplement everyday. But, yeah, fatigue is part of this!

    I feel like I get fatigue pretty often too. I never knew why, and then I found out it can be one of the effects of PCOS. I don't seem to have IR, but I do still get tired a lot. I feel like my immune system has always been compromised, too, because if there's ANYTHING going around, I'm guaranteed to catch it! I have started taking several different vitamins so I'm hoping that will help ward anything off as well as pick me up a bit.

    I'm fatigued and catch everything, but I'm also IR. With IR your cells starve which contributes to feeling run down. When your body is exhausted, your ability to fight off sickness goes down.

    I just hate when someone comes to work sick. It's guaranteed that I'll catch it and get it worse than the person that gave it to me.

    So i'm not being stupid into thinking that me feeling so fatigued, always getting the flu and so forth, isn't just me but part of PCOS?
    The doctors are only assuming i have PCOS at this stage.. my symptoms are excess hair, hair falling out, irregular periods (get it between 2 weeks to three months), acne. I don't have problems in weight gain. The ultrasound said i don't really get cysts or something, i donno, i'm a bit confused. He said i have to get some blood tests done but I gotta wait till i get my period cos that's when they need to take it (whys that???), one of the things they'll be testing for is diabetes so I guess I gotta wait. But yeh I need to wait till DECEMBER cos that's when i have my appointments with the endocrologist and gyno (the gyno didn't want to make it earlier in case i don't get my period between now and then)... so yes... blah... I feel really sick and i'm sick and tired of this
