I have recently been diagnosed with Fibro and the burning nerve pain has been a problem. I usually have been able to manage it during the day for the most part with no medication. Though I can see that might change soon. My BIG issue is insomnia. I know many fibro suffers have this issue. My doctor wants me to try gaba 100mg at night. I tried it for the first time and i did get a little sleepy but it was like i was sleepy but awake at the same time. It did not work well. An hour later I was up and had to take a Klonipin to try and fall asleep but that didnt work well either. I have a low tolerance for medication so I normally use small doses. I have tried amitriptyline but it made the pain worse. AMbien seems to over sedate me and Trazadone gives me a rapid heart rate. He wants me to try Lunesta but I have not heard good things about that.
Has anyone had any luck with gaba at night. Maybe I just need to take a larger dose. I would like to hear what has helped anyone for sleep. I know sleep is so important and now that IM not getting maybe 4 hours of sleep the nerve pain during the day has gotten worse
Again....anyone that has had any luck with anything for sleep please reply
