Patient replied :
I am 5'7 and i weigh 230 lbs. My mom has been a nurse for 30 years and she thinks i may have some kind of thyroid and hormone imbalance i have dieted and excersised and and i can not shed more than 10 lbs. I dont gain alot of weight anymore , its mostly a gradual gain over time. I have had the general test for thyroid and it came back both times normal. I dont know if this is worth mentioning, but i do have quite a few hairs on my breasts, chin, neck and down below my belly button. It is nothing like a beard or excessive but it is noticable. I also have a very high sex drive, but most of the time I will want to have sex but i am so exhausted we dont. I figured i needed a OB-GYN for the female stuff. I guess one question i have is could a hormone imbalance be the cause of my headaches? I litteraly have one from the moment i wake up until i finally fall asleep at night. Thanks for any advice.
Sure I would help you with the OB - GYN issue.
I think you are very likely to have PCOS - Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.
This is basically a condition of hormonal imbalance.
The ovaries get studded with multiple cysts, and they do not rupture to form mature eggs.
It is typically characterized by irregular , delayed periods, heavy periods with clots, unexplained weight gain, thick, coarse hair growth on the chin, hair etc, dark pigmentation of the nape of the neck , groin, armpits.
You need to consult an OB - GYN.
Then please go for an internal exam, pelvic ultrasound scan and the following tests, preferably on day 2 of your cycle -
FSH, LH, TSH, Prolactin, OGTT, Free Testosterone, Lipid Profile, DHEAS.
This will clarify the diagnosis.
Treatment consists of a preparation called Metformin, and dedicated programme for weight loss.
Even a 5 % weight loss will result in regular cycles.
Yes, it can cause unexplained headaches too.
The above tests will check for thyroid levels also.
Hope this information helps you. Would be glad to answer discuss further.
