    She's in syd, not sure where your at
    Unfortunately I'm not in Sydney but I'll see if there's someone here like them.

    B12 deficiency is common with hypothyroidism btw. I would be asking for your thyroid to be tested (t3, t4, free testo etc).

    Thank you - I haven't looked into B12 before.

    When my b12 is extremely low. I feel exhausted. I get get pins and needles in my feet and hands. Everything has that metallic taste like when your pregnant, my vision gets worse but i don't notice that until after i have a needle or two and suddenly i can see better.

    If just low is just the tiredness.

    I'm surprised she didn't prescribe metformin for your PCOS, it decreases your insulin resistance.

    PCOS, insulin resistance, b12 deficiency, low iodine, thyroid issues all relate to the endocrine system, (from my reading) Id be asking for tests related to its functioning - best of luck.

    I would be asking for antibodies testing too.... you mention immune issues - if you have one, you are likely prone to developing others.
