Hi everyone, little bit of info about me. My name is Lauren, I was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome in 2015. I have other symptoms such as acne, joint pain, feet feeling cold, fatigue, pale skin, dark circles under eyes, heavy periods, thyroid swelling, palate and tonsils sore. What tests do I ask for? I have so many I don't know where to start! Thanks in advance.

Ishaddick,

Ask your GP to do a thyroid function test and thyroid antibodies test. Joint pain can be due to vitamin D deficiency and heavy periods due to iron deficiency so ask for vitamin D, ferritin/iron, B12 and folate to be tested too.
