Exclamation blood pressure & menstrual cycle problem

so any of you who read my past posts know, my period is absenst past 4-5 years, & i have high blood pressure & weight problems

i finally got into a new docter, a woman.. she was really nice, she sent me for blood tests, they should be back any day now, im kind of nervous.. she just sent me for a bunch of different hormonal diseases/syndromes because thats what she thinks it is..

as soon as i told her about all my symptoms, the first thing she said to me is she thinks i could possibly have polycystic ovarian syndrome. i already know what that is because i read up on it on this webpage
anyways my symptoms are;

absent period
VERY high blood pressure
incredible weight gain [ since i stopped getting my period ]

although i dont have alot of increased body hair, as most people with pcos have. at least this docter is doing something about it, eh ?

anyways my blood pressure was extremely high when i seen her
before .. about 2 months ago it was 168/110, & this time when i went to see her it was 156/120. she was extremely worried.. but she uped my dose of accupril to 20 mgs.. i have to go back soon & she said she might have to double the dose, depending.

anyways all comments appreciated
thanks, melissa
