I hate to scare you, but you may have Peri-menopause. Research this on Net. I read your post and I know exactly what you're saying.
Do you suddenly have bad PMS?
Getting acne again like a teen?
Rarely think of sex---but then all of a sudden-- lust in the worst way? Especially right before and after periods?
Gaining weight for no good reason?
Having trouble losing weight?
Insomnia and/or disrupted sleep?
Aches and pains, especially in morning?
It might be Peri-menopause. And it can last for years! Aaaarrrrggghhh!!!
I have it and so do alot of my friends.(BTW I'm 38). It sucks. Do look it up on the Net--there are lots of sites and lots of info. Also, there is alot of advice as to natural remedies, etc.
Again---don't mean to be the voice of doom---I offer this info as a way to take charge if this is the case (perhaps not!) And age brings wisdom---you found Firefox, yay!
Best of luck,
I don't know all about the first part... but ya.. we go through our sexual peak in our 30's and all of the sudden its OH YEAH all the time.

Is it true that women come to a "second" coming of age, when they reach their late-twenties, early thirties? On the one hand, we revel in the changes and maturity, of gained wisdom, and worryless effort it takes to handle our daily routine. Most of us, (not all), have it seemingly" together" and figured out who we are, what we "do" and what we want from life. On the other hand, we count calories, carbs, sugar, exercise too much or too little, count grey hair and color as necessary. We see the laugh lines that form and lie to ourselves, that no one sees them, a little cream at night to fix that right up. We carry ourselves in front of established galpal network of friends, as someone with strength and confidence. Yet, behind the laughs over sextoys, and those stupid clueless college girls, with perfect slim little bodies, we snicker about, ....we don't admit, even to ourselves, our one fear. Our sex drives have taken a huge nosedive! For months at a time, we get frustrated, because, although our thoughts are along the lines of sex, and our brains want it, our bodies are on a 'sleep timer'. .....Then one day..just one afternoon out of nowhere...a sleek,handsome specimen of jogging manhood, passes under our noses, and it's like that silly song,"OOOhhhh, yeah!" Lights back on in the libido department, and we are romancing our lucky husbands and mates. I can't figure it out, on one minute, off the next, like a damn faucet, that the stupid utility company can't seem to fix.... I'm so frustrated!!:bnghd:
Any thoughts, advice, or commisseration on this topic would be nice.
