    Today I went to a new doctor, who said because I twitch and jerk at night, something I've only noticed since I crashed from fm...) that i am not sleeping deeply and I am going for a sleep study. In the interim he put me on clonazepam before bed, until i am evaluated and then he will switch to a better medication. He claims if my deep sleep is restored that my FM symptoms should subside.
    Do I have false hope ????

    Yours, Sue

    IMHO, I think that you will feel significantly better when you sleep better. I have read articles that state you can induce FM symptoms by depriving sleep for a few days. Will it cure the FM? Cure is a hard term. I don't know if there is one. I think it is multifaceted.

    Maybe people that have had a sleep study done and are sleeping better could respond and let us know how it helped them.

    In the mean time, I'm glad that your doc is proactive and getting this study done instead of dragging his feet. He's a keeper. . .
