It's worse this year, but I've always had these kind of problems. I don't know what sets it off, lol. Any ideas? Usually they last from between 3-7 minutes and are more common in the summer and spring. I *am* iron deficient as well. I've finally gotten to the point of considering surgery.. . a big step for someone who hates hospitals with a burning, fiery passion LOL Does anyone else have this problem? Are there any other uhm, cures? I'd considered any invasive approach absolutely the Last Possible Solution..
