    Im sorry to hear you arent sleeping. I do sleep now, but only because I take Ambien CR. I would go for days, literally without rest and that makes pain much worse. Good luck! If you have meds for sleep, take them by all means!

    Has your doctor referred you for a sleep test? A majority of CFS & FM sufferers have sleep apnea and don't know it. Even if you get a good night's rest - say 8-10 hours - if you're not sleeping deep enough it won't do any good. You need REM sleep. You need the sleep to heal and to stop the pain.

    Also, check your medication's side effects. A good many drugs today cause sleepiness.
