  1. I appreciate everyone's response, thank you. She did mention that she thinks my stomach pain is probably from gastritis or colitis because I frequently have diarrhea, and said that it can feel like a sharp knife stabbing pain depending on where it hits in the intestines, I just find it hard to believe that pain would always be hitting my ovaries. And quite often. She wants me to document the stomach pain and diarrhea to see if they correlate. She is convinced because my periods are regular that I am fine? But I've read nowhere that you must have irregular periods to have pcos. My periods are l
  2. Saw a doctor at uc Davis about ttc. She normally doesn't do anything about failure to conceive until actively trying 1 year, but when I pressed about my stomach pain she agreed to schedule an ultrasound for 3 months but expects it to be normal and suggested I probably have ibs. I mentioned the tachycardia because my hr was 150 walking to the office and 113 as my BP was taken, she said it's probably my body's way of compensating for being so skinny. Does this statement have any merit? I'm 5'9.5 at 120 (usually fluctuate between 117-130 so I'm at a low point at the moment) I always figured I am
  3. How exciting! Congratulations <3
  4. @BuffRockChick that's great that you're making headway with you husband, I hope your appointment goes well!! It'd be just my luck to bring along my s.o and have the doctor tell me that nothing is wrong. He'd be like, "see? You're fine. Chill out." You're right I need to find a better way to talk to doctors. I often get flustered in those type of situations. It doesn't help one bit that I get worn out by talking and have to take big breaths in the middle of my sentances. I usually bring a list to hand them when they ask for symptoms. The ovulation test will be a great prep for my next appointme
  5. My dad has severe cluster headaches. He would often bang his head against the wall and sometimes curl up in a ball sweating because the pain was so bad. However he gets them 3 times a day or more, not a continuous headache. If that is what you are experiencing then I am so sorry. Have you tried oxygen? I can ask him what he does now to manage the pain if you'd like. I know that he uses medical marijuana and believes it is the only thing that truly helps, and he's tried many many things over the years.
  6. Thank you both. @BuffRockChick I know exactly what you mean about the diagnosis and getting him to understand. That's why, we'll that's one reason why, I wish a doctor would take me seriously. He tends to listen when it's "someone who knows what they're talking about" *eye roll* I've been called lazy too! What a smack in the face that feels like! And I think he has come to know the crabby irritable me as who I am. I pretty much have, too, at this point. I have had 1 ekg done while I was having an episode of SVT. It took me a while to realize that's what happened because I didn't und
  7. I wish I knew what caused this! Though I suspect I have mast cell activation which I suppose would account for the itchiness. I scratch so hard I bruise all the time, especially legs. I'm constantly itchy I'm random places. Wish I knew how to help, just thought I'd let you know you're definitely not alone. Take care
  8. @BuffRockChick thanks for your concern love. I understand where he is coming from but he can be hard headed about a lot of things and when it comes to my heart he doesn't want to believe anything is wrong. It is stressful for him too but I think we will both feel better if nothing is wrong with the echo. He doesn't know yet about the pcos. I think that would be too much for him to handle and I'm trying to deal with it on my own. I know he will find out eventually. So glad you were able to get pregnant. Gosh that is such a long time to wait. My dad recently started pressuring me about grandkid
  9. @MomtoGiuliana thanks a lot. From what I understand a reproductive endocrinologist might be my best bet. There's one in Sacramento at uc Davis. It's far, but hopefully he is accepting new patients. My s.o is completely against me taking any kind of medication that regulates my heart even without being pregnant. Of course according to him, he just thinks "everybody runs differently". Starting to think there's no white light for me.
  10. Just felt like giving an update...Managed to weasel myself into the only cardiologist office that would make me an appointment, 45 min away, month wait. There's been no communication from my primary since I turned in the 30 day monitor, but she was getting the reports "almost instantly" according to a lady from the life alert company that watched the monitor when I pressed. Not too worried I guess. Apparently the cardiologist wasn't too happy I didn't have a referral, because he came in with a coffee and came in got super comfortable in his chair and took a sip before even acknowledging me, li

  12. Ohh I just love to cook and bake. I especially love that I can have control over what I'm eating because I can be soo picky sometimes! My crock pot and rice cooker are used verrrry often. I was recently gifted a food processor and I'm in love. Days that I don't feel like cooking, usually throw 2 cups of brown rice in the cooker and steam some vegetables on the stove. With teriyaki sauce or ranch, that's a good enough dinner for us. Usually the day after grocery shopping (or...whenever I get around to it..) defrost 3 or 4 chicken breasts, put them in the slow cooker with some water and so
  13. Thanks for sharing! Brittany Murphy's brother discussed her having had POTs (or maybe it was general dysautonomia? I can't remember at the moment) in an interview. Is the article suggesting chemotherapy for POTs? I can't quite grasp what the research concluded as I've been pretty out of it today.
