    I have ocassional insomnia which I think is hormonal; have CFS and I can exercise, however, I get post-exertional malaise that can last for days to weeks. Sometimes I can work through it, and other times I have to rest for a few days.

    -both hypersomnia and insomnia (dont ask) i get both of them severely at times. sometimes mild.
    -CFS only (no fibro at all)
    -i can exercise (swim, walk) but only to my limits- if over do it- cfs gets worse

    Had both; now taking xyrem, I sleep 6-8hrs a night and usually nap 1-2 hours also.
    CFS (ME) with Myofascial Pain
    I have not been able to exercise. I just bought a recumbant exercise bike to see if I can do so if I start out slowly (i.e. 1 minute). I have to put the bike together first though :)
