Why is it that most of us with FM don't sleep no matter how tired we are and when we do it's only for a short time?
Mark Pellegrino, MD responded:
Hi missshortyd,

Well some of us have beautiful black labs that keep us so busy running around and lick our faces while we're trying to sleep!

I will start a new discussion on sleep and FM so look for that too. (as soon as I'm done with this response!)

Good quality sleep is very hard to come by in FM, no matter how tired we are. In fact, we are so tired because we sleep so poorly. We have non-restorative sleep where we do not get into good deep sleep stages (mainly Stage 4 or delta sleep) so we never fully "recharge our batteries." We get some stage 4 sleep but it is brief and frequently interrupted (as measured on a sleep EEG, or part of a sleep study). So, we wake up often and watch the clock....(YAWN).....
