I have had fibro for almost 15 years now. I just turned 50 and am starting to go through menopause. I don't know if it's the fibro or just normal menopause, but everything seems worse, the pain, the depression, the 'mind fog'. I don't know if I should just hang in there, or try to get help. My doctor doesn't seem very supportive. The wonderful doctor that diagnosed me and helped me in the early part of my fibro has retired from practice. I just don't feel like ME anymore, and I hate it. So, what do you think, does menopause affect fibro?
