I saw my new doctor two days ago to get the lab results. Apparently I have zippo/nada hormones so she's convinced me to get on these. Also she gave me a spray I'm supposed to use twice a day that will help my own body make human growth hormone. And my throid is fine. By the way, I'm 68 and had my last period at 40. This doctor specializes in FM/arthritis, aging, etc. and said that hormones greatly affect muscle pain, fatigue, skin aging, etc. I know I've read this in several Suzanne Somers books.
