Ok. So I am 38yrs young and have had fibro for years, along with a very low thyroid level (not out of normal range, but literally at the very bottom of normal).
So I went to a new doctor and she did saliva hormone testing. Well, turns out my progesterone level is very low(mine is 24, and the normal range is 75-270). She is starting me on oral progesterone suppliments, AND she said that low progesterone levels cause fibromyalgia, hypothyroidism, insomnia, irritability, PMS and weight gain!! All the problems I have been having for YEARS! I am trying really hard not to get my hopes up about this new therapy, but I really hope it works!
I will keep you all updated on it...
