Hi there, thanks for asking. If you have tender points on your sternum, your elbow (on the lateral sides) and some other parts of your body, you probably have chronic fatigue syndrome
. Sleep problem in chronic fatigue syndrome is manageable with treatment of the mood in majority of the people.
As you mentioned, it could be related to your estrogen
level drop as well, specially if you do not have any tender point in your body. The process of decreasing the hormones takes several years and many people need to take hormone replacement therapy
or some medications from the class of alpha 2 agonists (like clonidine
,...) to control these symptoms. Best wishes.
