I'm from Manchester ish! My GP is helpful to me, but doesn't understand it - I've explained better in my post tonight http://forum.lowcarber.org/showthread.php?t=290532

I'm an insomniac - hence i'm posting this at 1.45am!

My biggest problem is I'm disabled - and not at all mobile - I get a hell of a lot of inflammation and just found that on this link I just got from the forum explaining PCOS suffers get this. I couldn't believe that - there's not been an explanation for the pain I get - found one!!!!! Lol. I'll be printing that for my orthopaedic consultant for certain!!!

I've been researching on the gluten intolerence since I had a dietitian suggest I start having wholegrain bread. I'm starting to think that may be a contributing factor to myself but need to test it - especially after what has been said on this thread about it!

Me either Pain keeps me up sometimes but it's not all that - it has to be PCOS. It's amazing how many problems this condition can cause

I feel like my GP feels that way with me sometimes - or I wouldn't be self diagnosing!!! She's a real sweetie, but you know the look you get when they don't quite think you're all there?

I just wanted to say that I think this thread has been hugely helpful.
I've always suspected I had PCOS. (hello, I have more hair on my body than my husband) Last year my periods went wonky and so last week I broke down and went and got a blood test done. My doctor called me the other day and confirmed that ''I had a percentage of symtoms'' which I'll be grilling him about in detail next week when we meet to talk about everything. I'll be taking notes from this thread and I'll ask every question I have until I'm satisfied I know what he's talking about.
I swear to God though, he better be busting out the drugs that make me lose body hair (but not my real hair!) sharpish like!

even if u didnt have PCOS and just was realy hairy, there must be something that they can give you for reducing the appearence of hair so even if it turns out u dont have it still ask about what u can do for the hair anyway
