    Hi Kaz.

    I don't know if my sleep problems triggered fibromyalgia or if they blend with it. When I don't sleep well I definitely get worse. 

    There's an American doctor (can't cite his name here because of moderation)  that's an expert on fibro and CFS that says that lack of proper restorative sleep is the hallmark of fibro.

    Since I'm on LDN I get sleepier and fall asleep earlier and quicker but... (there's a but) I still wake up during the night and still wake up tired. 

    XX Teresa
