It seems I've been fighting to get a good night's sleep for what seems like forever. I know it's part of the fibromyalgia but it's the part that really gets on my nerves! I went years without getting any sleep. Doctors sent me to psychiatrists who insisted that talk therapy would help de-stress me. They insisted that I needed a natural sleep, not chemically induced. Well, like I told them, that didn't help. Following so-called "sleep hygiene" never helped. Exercise, watching my diet, trying to manage stress, hot baths, no TV after a certain time, no lights in the bedroom, ambient noise, etc. Nothing worked. I never wanted sleeping pills but the my doctor finally prescribed Ambien. That helped for a week, then back to insomnia. My doctor told me to take Melatonin and Ambien. That's been helping. I still don't sleep well, but I was sleeping some. Now I'm back to not sleeping again. I'm on a new medication for complications from gall bladder removal but the doctor says that shouldn't be causing a problem. He says that taking Lyrica, Lexapro, Topamax, Percocet should make me tired. What I can't seem to get through to him is that I am tired - very tired. I just sleep. I'm out of ideas. Does anyone here have any suggestions?
