Hello Fibro folks

Today I feel abit normal because I was able to sleep 6 hours last night.First night in 3 weeks. But still feel unrested and acky. My MD increased the neurotin yesterday to take one in am also.Since I have been home with fibro flare I was wondering if anyone famous has been iflicted has had this dreaded syndrome.If someone famous was symptomatic and the news media got ahod of it maybe there would be some research done to find a cure or a permenant remission.Anyone have any thoughts on this.
