This is very interesting.
I am currently having my hormones tested. Thyroid, hormones, adrenal glands, vitamin D and some others. I'm 45 and my periods have been spoty and every 2 weeks. I am nursing my baby so that could have something to do with it. I plan on weaning him in October when he is a year old.
My problem is that I am loosing weight. I have never been a size 6 in my life but I am now. Woohoo! I have some classic thyroid symptoms (some of which could be related to post-pregnancy) Hair falling out, rapid weight loss after pregnancy. Lost 26 pounds in 9 months. cholestral drop. Went from 235 to 191. Fatigue. I told the Dr. that I could drink a dble espresso and it wouldn't even faze me.
It will be interesting to learn what the results come back as.
Oh and someone said they had a seizure disorder that went away? I'm being tested for that by a Neurologist. There seems to be a lot of common ailments that go along with fibro that leads me to believe that it is an auto-immune disease.
