Heather's Story

I have been fighting a never ending fight since 2000. I was diagnosed with PCOS and have been treated for it for the past 7 years. I have never gotten any better only worse.

In the begining my only symptoms were stomach pain, head aches, body aches, and weight gain. Now I have what I have been calling for the past few years a stress knot but for cushies it is known as a buffalo hump.

My doctors think I am crazy but I also have the moon face and stretch marks, mood swings and bruises. I am trying to get them to test me, but they think I am crazy!! I'm starting to feel crazy.

I need some help and don't know where to turn.
