PCOS and metformin

I have a history of PCOS. I was continuously gaining weight so my endocrinologist suggested metformin but the medicine made me nauseous all the time so i discontinued it. But after leaving the meds i am again gaining weight. I didn't want to rely on medicines all the time but keeping weight in check is becoming an issue. I feel very lethargic and have mood swings. Have a history of hypothyroid but my doctor took me off thyroxine as TSH levels were really low (4years ago; immediately after which i gained weight and kept gaining, complicated by PCOS). Should i start with metformin or do i need to get other tests done. Can it be related anyway to thyroid (Latest TSH levels are normal). Is there an alternative treatment available.

AntiTPO greater than 1300

6 month ago my wife was diagnosed with slightly elevated TSH(6) and asked to start with 25mg of thyronorm. Within 3 month the TSH level went down to 0.05 so the doc asked us to stop medicine and retest after 2 month. This time the TSH level went to 100. Doc suggested to do anti TPO test to check for auto immune disorder which we got result as greater than 1300.Unfortunatly my regular doc has left Bangalore so I have to restart with a new doc. Before I do that I wanted to check what does above result of anti TPO ? Anything to worry about?
