Any clue??

Posted by kmiller11205 @kmiller11205, Wed, Jan 23 7:59pm

Something has changed in the last 2 months. I’m 43 and 49 weeks old, female . 5 ft 140lbs. I know I have PCOS. I had a cat rupture on ovary on Dec 2, only second time in life that’s happened. First time I was on invitro drugs. I know shake, people call it tremors but I don’t. I say vibrate or pulsate. It’s constant, sometime you can see it in my hands, legs, lips, body. Buts it’s constant not a twitch for several weeks. Mri was fine. Bad cholesterol is high, good cholesterol is low, blood pressure is 154/90, non fasting glucose 154 . Thyroid perfect, lipids perfect. A1c blood test 5.8. Any clue what’s going on??

@kmiller11205 Hi, and welcome to Connect.
Your symptoms sound unusual but sometimes symptoms that appear to be unrelated actually are. I know that from personal experience when I had NASH cirrhosis but it was not yet diagnosed. One of my symptoms was shaky hands. That was diagnosed initially as Essential Tremor, but it turned out to be from cirrhosis. None of your other symptoms sound anything like my symptoms though. It is possible that you have essential tremor, totally unrelated to your other symptoms. If so, that is a nuisance, but benign.

Have you consulted with a doctor? You definitely should. I was told by some doctors whom I know that generally doctors of internal medicine are better diagnosticians than family practice doctors so I would start there. That being said, my internist did not diagnose my cirrhosis, a neurologist did!

You mention A1c so I presume you have diabetes, well controlled. Most doctors of internal medicine can treat simple diabetes also, in case that is somehow contributing to your other symptoms.
I will be interested in hearing what the doctor says about your symptoms, I hope you are able to get an appointment soon.

No I don’t have diabetes, I have PCOS so insulin resistance goes with that and they were just checking but haven’t said diabetes yet. Thanks

@kmiller11205 Thanks. I was not familiar with PCOS so I just googled it. I saw that it makes a person more susceptible to diabetes so that's why they track A1c.
I hope your doctor can give you some help with this, it's miserable to not know what a problem is. If your doctor cannot I would seek a second opinion at a major medical center. Not doing that was my biggest regret when I went for a long time with no diagnosis.
