Do any other bees have PCOS?
I’m overweight, always have been a little heavy but after HighSchool I gained close too 100 pounds… a good chunk of it within a year or so and slowly after that. Although nothing changed as far as excercise and stuff. I’m currently 235.
I’m almost 21.
I have regular menstral cycles. One time I didn’t after coming off NuvaRing i was late for 3 periods and it was horrible. Otherwise normal although 5-7 days and have always had a very heavy flow. I have also had pretty bad cramps usually.
In that last 6 months to year I’ve noticed that right in the center of my clevage, below it though, I have developed these brownish/grayish spots. darker spots esentially. I do have a big rack to go with being overweight, but not awkardly huge. Im currently a 42C or 40D different bras different ones.
Lately in the last few months I’ve developed this on my neck too. In the center of my neck its basically one big dark blob, it’s not extremely noticiable in some light but in others very… it moves to the right side and to the back of my neck almost… and on the sides its many spots not just one.
I do not have high blood pressure, I do not recall the last time I had my cholestrol checked, and I do not know about blood sugar levels. Although there are days when if I go to long without eating someone I get that shakey, very light feathery feeling like i need to get some food in me.
A girlfriend of mine has PCOS, is very irregular with periods and has reported the same spots as me. She currently has them now. She found out she had it because there was a lump in her breast and turned out it was a cycst.
I googled dark spots under breasts, and on neck. And I only find stuff on PCOS and Insulin Resistance.
I asked my doctor about it and she kinda blew it off like.. ” oh well your skin touches there where it folds and thats why. it could have some fungus with it but theres not much to treat it” I get that… but I dont have a permentant fold in my neck or by my breasts… when im sitting down it touches sure but when im standing up its not and im on my feet all day at work. I am very clean I shower daily sometimes twice.
Anyone have some insight? I’m suddenly afraid I really need to get this checked ASAP because insulin resistance is the beggining of diabetes. EEK help.
