      No problem! That’s how I felt before this website. No one knew anything, no one understood. I love researching, talking to doctors and actually finding solutions that improve the symptoms!! And I’m glad so many people can relate- I’m not alone!!!!

      Hopefully your doctor can order some bloodwork and test your hormone levels, insulin, dhea, thyroid and get you on a great treatment plan!! Supplements, diet, exercise, acupuncture and meds can all help!
