My dissertation to complete my PhD is on fibromyalgia. I will do some research on the testerone angle because that one has not come up in my research lately anyway.

Came across this article yesterday. Interesting to say the least, but not sure what to think really. This is from Health Rising, a blog by Cort Johnson. He does a very good job of keeping abreast of all the latest news and research for fibro and CFS/ME. Here is an excerpt:

"Testosterone, women and fibromyalgia? Could a male hormone be causing trouble in FM? ...

Testosterone may be responsible for many features associated with males but its also secreted in small amounts by the adrenal glands and the ovaries in females. While males produce and use about 20 x's the testosterone that females do, females are actually more sensitive to the hormone... These researchers...assert FM is an inflammatory nervous system disorder and they believe testosterone plays a role in that inflammation...The authors propose several mechanisms by which low testosterone might affect pain sensitization in fibromyalgia..."

The rest of it can be found here:
