Can hormone levels effect fibromyalgia?

A friend of mine is experiencing many of the symptoms of fibromyalgia but has not yet been diagnosed. She has been visiting and visiting her family doctor but with no difinate diagnosis to all the pain she is experiencing. Searching on the web came to the results of fibromyalgia, which she is going to be taking to her doctor next week. She will also be requesting to get reffered to a rheumatologist.

The funny thing is, is that she got pregnant while trying to figure out what was wrong with her, and her symptoms were not as severe as they were before her pregnancy. Then a couple months later, after the birth of her baby, her symptoms came back full force. Very dibilitating… she can’t even carry around the car seat or do her laundry now…

Could it be that the hormone levels while she was pregnant actually help her symptoms of this syndrome?

    My fibro symptoms were better when I was pregnant also. There are some who make that connection, even linking it with menopause. But, there is no concrete research to prove a connection.
