Hello fello sufferers/ This is my story and question: I have been experiencing moderate symptoms of FM for a couple of years. About one year ago the symptoms worsened and I started having symptoms of CFS as well. It started with a terrible flu which literally kept me bedbound with severe pain in mostly my legs and back. In addition I had terrible fatigue. I slept nonstop for a week. I was never quite right after that. I have a history of depression and take meds who's side effect helps me sleep. I seem to be sleeping soundly. (Although when I wake up I am in terrible pain.) I take Provigil to stay awake during the day. Without it, I could not stay awake all day without a 2 1/2 hour "nap". Even with taking my 200mg dose every AM I am pooping out by 5 PM. If I take another dose later in the day, I'm afraid I won't sleep at night. I seem to be building a tolerance to the provigil. I am a teacher and have four children. It is very difficult for my family to understand why I am so fatigued and lay down after dinner. I struggle with feelings of guilt. My husband is usually really great, but I know he feels put out sometimes too. What do you suggest?
