Solutions for Sleep | Fibromyalgia Self-Help

Sleep problems are one of the most common complaints among people with fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. With both conditions, poor sleep is a major source of intensified symptoms.

Regardless of the number of hours slept, sleep is usually not restorative, meaning that people wake up tired rather than refreshed. This is likely due to an insufficient amount of the deepest and most restorative type of sleep, called delta sleep. When healthy volunteers in a research experiment were deprived of delta sleep, they developed symptoms of fibromyalgia in a few days: fatigue, cognitive difficulties, irritability and muscle aches.

In addition, many people with CFS and FM experience intensified fatigue, achiness and mental fogginess that lasts one to two hours after rising. In addition to sleep problems due to CFS and FM, a majority of people with the two conditions experience sleep disorders such as sleep apnea and restless legs syndrome.

Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:

When you’re experiencing symptoms of widespread pain as a result of fibromyalgia, getting a good night’s rest can be difficult. Aside from following through with treatment procedures to manage the pain and discomfort an individual may feel, getting proper sleep can also help reduce the symptoms. Following several of the above recommendations can help those affected with fibromyalgia, achieve a bountiful slumber.
