Re: Stage 1 OC - How were you diagnosed?

mnemosyne,

The reason I threw out that question was to see if I could figure out what the doctor's might be missing. I'm not obsessing over symptoms for symptoms sake, I want my life back. I haven't been able to eat a normal meal for over 9 months. I can only eat a few bites at a time, have nausea and have lost 30 lbs. I'm 5'9" and 115 lbs. a week ago, but gained 5 lbs. overnight and am now bloated. I've had every gastro test imaginable (I think) everything comes back normal. I've had periods that were 2 1/2 weeks apart and now 8 weeks with no period. I have pelvic pain intermittent, sometimes stabbing and tremendous fatigue. I also have low blood pressure. The only thing they have found so far are cysts on my ovaries, but want to watch and wait. Because of the cysts on the ovaries I was just wondering if the doctors could be missing something.

My mother did die of breast cancer at 55, was diagnosed at 46 and my brother had testicular cancer.
