Hey, there! Following up on your post under my FM Awareness/birthday thread: You know, I don't think I had heard about not being able to relax muscles. I can if I consciously think about it, and when I find I am stressed and hurting, when I make myself relax, I do feel better. I am kind of a tense, worrisome person, so I imagine I do carry myself tense a lot. I suppose my type of personality would be prone to FM. The other thing is, I was never aware of feeling like I didn't sleep well, EVEN THOUGH I HAD BAD SLEEP APNEA!!! No daytime drowsiness etc. But I had it bad! Struggling still with the CPAP although it is getting better. So maybe that means I can have FM without being conscious of a lot of things, like I had (have?) severe sleep apnea without realizing it? In the mornings I should have been feeling like I was run over by a truck from stopping breathing so many times, but I didn't! Weird, huh?
