Apart from pain med tink are you on any night meds for sleep and extra pain relief, I spent just over 20 years stuck in the circle you mention it's so bad, then my GP decided to try me on a very old and cheap antidepressant along with a very low dose muscle relaxant and I now sleep most nights... Before this I was getting all tense and anxious at night cos I knew I wouldn't sleep and made the problem worse...

Good luck

Amatriptaline was useless for me as was seroxat and fluoxetine , if your antidepressant is having no effect please see your GP I finally found dosulepin very old very cheap and suits me perfectly and I get sleep, so often meds are trial and error,with fibro ....maybe next time you visit your GP it might be worth mentioning as even then the worst days don't seem quite so bad when you have had some sleep

Good luck
