I'm 30lbs overweight, and was a bit of an emotional eater but It's reduced a lot. However, I get insatiable cravings for baked goods like bread,doughnuts,croissants etc,tea/coffee, and chocolate. I was a hard to feed baby,but when introduced to solid food I would eat copious amounts of bread,milk, cereal and chocolate. I have a dark ring around my neck, and my face also is dark and ruddy,and I Was diagnosed with acanthosis nigricans at 14. I Have excess body hair on my chin, upper lip, underarms,between boobs, lower tummy, lower back, back of thighs, even bum. Hormone tests were done about a year ago, but the results were supposedly normal. A scan was done for PCOS, My mother had acanthosis and PCOS, but no cysts were detected. I also have regular periods so PCOS was ruled out. I can't help but feel that there is an underlying hormonal issue or chemical imbalance though, I also suffered from anxiety and depression since early childhood. should I go to the doctor again? what exactly should I ask for?
