I was recently diagnosed with PCOS. My only symptom was new and excessive facial and body hair at age 30. I still menstruate regularly, am not obese, do not have acne, and am not insulin resistant. An intravaginal ultrasound revealed that I do not have polycystic ovaries.
My gyno explained that my blood work revealed a greater than 3:1 ratio of my LH to FSH, which is why she is diagnosing me with PCOS. I also have elevated DHEA levels, which she said may or may not be related to PCOS.
The thing is, I have a slew of other symptoms that presented at the same time of the facial hair. They are: dizziniess, episodes of extreme tachycardia (170 bpm and over with problems with the heart ruled out), excessively cold hands that happen in "attacks", a deep feeling of fatigue and lethargy, and what I think is a mild feeling of confusion and "brain fog". My urine was tested for catecholimines due to the tachycardia and it came back as normal.
I think I might have been misdiagnosed and was thinking it could possibly be a pituitary or adrenal tumor - given the other symptoms. I am due to see an endocrinologist but in the mean time wanted to see if anyone with PCOS has the other symptoms I have or if anyone else might have been misdiagnosed with PCOS and had something else and if so, what that was?
