I've been diagnosed with CFS along with Fibromyalgia for about 2 years now, and my conditions have meant that I am pretty much housebound. My conditions also seem to affect my digestive system quite badly, giving me what feels like constant IBS-C symptoms, bloating, burping, stomach gurgling and churning, nausea and lightheadedness, although the severity of these symptoms are usually mild to moderate.
I have noticed something very strange concerning my sleep patterns and how they influence my general health the following day. The night before last I must have had a good eight hours straight sleep, however I felt absolutely awful throughout yesterday. Last night I must have only had five and a half hours sleep maximum, yet I feel so much better, more refreshed and alert, not so fuzzy, wobbly and ill. This isn't the first time I've noticed it either, everytime I sleep for 7 hours or more a night, I always seem to feel really ill the next morning, yet if I have a shorter amount of sleep during the night and maybe have the odd power nap or two during the day, my body seems to react much better.
I just thought it very strange that this should be the case, and thought I'd let you all know. I'd be really interested to know if any of you fellow CFS sufferers experience anything similar.
