Fibro is a secondary disease to me, I have had it for many years undiagnosed, but one GP told me the same thing that it usually applies to women around the menopause age. I too have gone through it YAY, I almost held a party when I finished my periods, started at 14, 2 weeks per month apart from pregnancies, until I was 50.
They say its 95% female, so I wonder if the men who have it, have a higher amount of hormones/oestrogen? I do hope I haven't offended any men here??? Women can have higher testosterone too, we need it to maintain libido, bone density and muscle mass.
