    And ,as I mentioned on your other post, these are all symptoms of hormone imbalance, particularly low thyroid function. Please get a thyroid panel done.
    This can also be a symptom of hypoglycemia, which many of us have as well. Have you tried a high protein diet, and eating small amts. every 3 hrs.?
    Also, you could be perimenopausal. That can start as early as age 30. Again, the treatment would be hormonal. There are natural things that can be used instead of synthetic, but you usually need an alternative doc to get them prescribed.
    The choking sensation you mention in your other post can be caused by panic due to hypoglycemia, but if you do not feel panicked, and your heart is not racing, hypothyroid is morel likely. Feeling faint is classic for hypoglycemia, and anyone who eats a lot of refined foods, esp. sugar, is likely to have it eventually.
    It is proven that the hormonal axis is out of balance in people with fibro.
    You can read more about it by going to chronicfatigue and a dot org, and/or drrind and a dot com. We cannot print URL's here, so that is a strong hint of how to find the info.
