Swollen, hard lymph nodes in neck, purple toes, brown spots on skin. Related to pcos?

I have swollen lymph nodes in my neck the size of grapes. They are hard and do not move and I have had them for some time. Is this related to PCOS? Even when they were sore when i was sick four months ago they were not movable. The swelling has gone down but they're still there. I have a doctors appointment in two weeks to discuss my pcos where i will mention them. I also have purple toes? And brown spots on my skin. Are these related?

Hello,
They can be interrelated .
you need to see Gynaecologist and get the hormonal assessment done .
Also need to get done CBC ESR .Thyroid profile.
Neck swelling that can be enlarged lymph nodes they are mostly separate but a proper examination is required for them and if they do not decrease in size then an excision biopsy will be required.
