To the ladies I was diagnosed with this several years ago before any of the other symptoms of CFS became apparent. I always thought this hormonal imbalance where my body produces too much testotrone was odd; nobody else in my family has this to my knowledge. I take birth control daily to regular my menstral cycle and if I stop taking it, I don't get my period at all. I've missed it for as long as a year (some people might think I'm crazy for taking medication to make me have that dreaded cycle! LOL) In all seriousness, just out of curiousity because I wonder if having that has anything to do with CFS - I saw people on here also have GERD(which I also have severely, I take Nexium everyday, can't eat without it). Thank you for reading.
