Does anyone suffer from nightmares or sleep disturbances? I say the demons come for me when I sleep as a joke, but sometimes I seriously wonder! :)
It only gets the best of me if I let it
MissCaptainKirk responded:
I used to have extremely terrifying nightmares that made me unable to eat during the day because I was so disturbed my stomach hurt.
I don't have them as often anymore, except for recently they've come back. I don't know if it has anything to do with FM though.

Hope your nightmares stop!
RacerLady503 replied to MissCaptainKirk's response:
I really wonder if it's just because I can't ever seem to hit the "deep" sleep anymore. I toss and turn and get a few minutes here and there but don't ever just sleep deeply like I used to!!! Blah!

Sometimes the medications we take can contribute to nightmares or bizarre dreams. Check your meds and adverse side effects.
I had such really wierd and disturbing dreams with cymbolta, and worse when I stopped them.
Hope this helps

i do. always weird dreams, but they look so real i get up exhausted and sometimes scared. i believe is the depression medications. i take lyrica and celexa.

I'm taking Lyrica and Cymbalta. I think the Lyrica gives the nitemares. I've had dreams where "satan" won't let me scream or speak! I know it's "him". But as soon as I remember that I am a child of GOD, I yell "JESUS"! and "he" screams and goes away! I don't know if it was the meds but that was occuring very often. Maybe it's the LORD telling me to call on him more.
