Hi Broadband,

There's no doubt that having some decent sleep is a tremendous help to us fibromites - it helps with pain management and reduces flares.

I guess your best bet would be to visit your GP and update your pain relief and to arrange some sedation to help you get a good night of rest.

CBT is also great for reducing this kind of flare. Your GP can arrange it for you, or you can self- refer. It teaches you how to be calm, and how to cope with pain and anxiety. I went through a phase of being so afraid of pain that it nearly paralysed me!

I am much better now, because of improved medication and CBT techniques.

Please go and see your GP I have battled fibro for 23 years and the sleep or lack of it was the worst part for the last 18 months I have got the right combo of meds and I get 7 hours of uninterrupted sleep at night which for me is the best thing ever.... Strange to say its lovely and warm here today and I have no energy everything aches ... Just when I was looking forward to the sun.... Don't you just love fibro :D

Lovely and warm here on the Isle of Wight, at least I'm

Not alone in the aches, and no energy

Hey Broadband,

I am going through the same thing.it is frustrating (more than normal). Not anything new you are doing? I know that in this weather it is tempting.that is half my prob! I cannot offer much advice but for sleeping there is a sound app that I use that has sounds of nature.the sea one always helps me get to sleep.i put it on a timer for a few hrs .it even has an option where u can combine different sounds eg sea with rainforest.maybe give that a try.pilates I find helps with minimising flare ups.hope that helps.

Hey there ,I use a hypno app when sleep is bad and its great .Im in a flare of several weeks at the moment and it hurts so bad .The only thing I will say is Dont fret over not sleeping it makes it worse .Sometimes I think having no energy is as bad as having all the pain .Hope things improve for you really soon .x

Hi broadband im gping through exactly what you're going through, I dont seem to be able to come out of it, its like ive got a black cloud above me and feels like its only happening to me. I dont seem to have the strength most days to fight it so it gets me which means yet another day in bed, I just want sleep and as for the burning pains in my legs, hips and arms that just gets worse. I think my meds im on have gotten used toy body so I can see another drs appointment coming up, soft hugs jenny xx
