Yeah, I guess that makes sense. Doctors probably don't know enough about hirsutism either. I was told it's usually middle eastern, indian, and mediterranean women who are prone to it, but who knows!
Inositol is definitely calming. Some people take it for anxiety, OCD and ADD. It used to help me sleep better at night, but at one point it stopped doing that so now I take it as soon as I wake up, and sometimes I also take myo in the afternoon. I must say that chiro is definitely more potent than myo...I even relaxed my diet a bit, and haven't really had new acne apart from a couple of small ones. I had to take 4 flights these past week, and usually my skin is a mess when I'm traveling but so far it has been surprisingly calm.
Is choline supposed to help with sleep? How much of it are you taking? Does it make you feel drowsy in the morning? When I was taking myo at night, I felt a bit drowsy in the morning.
It has been a little better these last couple of days but I still do feel generally more sleepy all day. I am still taking 250mg inositol and 250mg choline in the morning. It's difficult because I want to drink even more coffee because of the tiredness but I'm stopping myself. I don't know about choline helping sleep — when doing a quick google search, I see people saying both it does and it doesn't. It is supposed to help REM sleep and make dreams more vivid, but I haven't noticed this... the supplement that gives me super vivid dreams is zinc, even at a very low dose.
I hope you had/are having a good trip and I'm glad your skin is behaving itself! (:
EDIT: Oh, I don't know how I forgot to add this before... My boyfriend's family is German and even though his sisters hair are blonde, they struggle with hirsutism too. Long blonde hairs under the chin, jawline, etc. One has PCOS. Hope that helps a little, Green Gables. (:
