During my bout with premature onset severe meno last year, my new GYN who I think believes in CFS, suggested my CFS symptoms in earlier years may actually have been hormones, the night sweats/insomnia in particular. I told him that the doctor I had then said I was too young at the time (41), but GYN said no, not really, as they're seeing symptoms turning up 10 years earlier than our previous generations. (Which makes sense because my CFS started pounding me at age 37-39.) But he also said that levels can change hourly and daily so it would have been hard to treat me anyway as I'm not a candidate for any of the treatments by pill, thyroid sensitive to soy, and the BHRT cream is looking iffy too; I had to stop it because my ovaries must have kicked in again. The BHRT may have helped reset my sleep pattern though, a lot less trouble there, for now anyway. Still fatigued, but then I have YEARS of deconditioning to try and undo. Have any other CFS women out there talked about their CFS with their GYN?
