I have it too - though in my case it's probably more related to inadequate thyroid hormone.

You may have looked into this already but just in case you haven't, make sure that your TSH test is within the new "normal" range. Some physicians still go by the old standards which are now considered hypothyroid. The new guidlelines suggest people should be under 3 with many doctors arguing that the number should be more like 2. Of course labs may vary as well.
