I've been reading this board for a little while now, but this is my first post. Like many of you, I am trying to figure out a plan of attack for the whole FMS ordeal. I've been dealing for 2 years now, and I haven't found a lot of help doctors in my area. The last Rheumy I saw is convinced fatigue symptoms are caused by a lack of stage 4 sleep. (you can find more info about stage 4 sleep on other posts to this board) He, of course, wants to treat with a sleep medication. I'm trying to figure out if a sleep study would be valuable. My question is for those of you who HAVE had a sleep study done, and subsequently were treated with medicaions or therapy or whatever based on the results of the study. - In your opinion, was the information useful? - Did it result in a treatment that has actually helped you? Thanks for your input!
