Re: Fibro and peri meno...anyone else?
i just posted in another thread about the relationship of FM to hormones. i don't have any proof and i've not done enough reading, but i'm sure that there are hormones that can make it flare up.
i suffer from pcos (polycystic ovarian syndrome), which means my hormone are completely up the creek. lately they've been going haywire and my monthly cycle is just crazy. around the same time that my cycle started going weird (i.e. weirder than usual - i've never, ever been a regular person), i got these FM pains.
i also remember that my mother, around the time of her menopause, suffered with cronic fatigue syndrome. she was also under a LOT of stress as her mother had died not long before, from a long battle with alzheimers.
hormones, stress... i think they have a huge impact.
