I’m new to this forum and and looking for some advice.
I have been diagnosed with PCOS and also have a number of symptoms that can be associated with thyroid issues, from what I’ve googled!
I’m 26. Have been loosing quite some hair over the past few months, I have horrendous period issues which could be related to the PCOS but also thyroid possibly? Also experienced weight gain, pain in joints and am currently being investigated for unexplained pelvic pain. As well as feeling generally unwell for months. Because of all these problems also experiencing depression & anxiety.
I’m constantly worried the doctors will fob me off as there are so many things wrong and no one seems to be able to diagnose me with anything but I’m living in constant pain 😫
I want to ask my GP to investigate my thyroid but I’ve read online there are various tests and some are not as thorough, and there are certain ones you need to have for accurate results.
Any similar experience/ advice on how to bring up this with my GP and what tests I should as for?
