Patients with Fibromyalgia chronic fatigue are lucky to fall asleep at a normal time. They''re often borderline insomniacs, up until five or six in the morning, usually cat-napping randomly throughout the day.
They feel like they''re missing out on quality REM sleep and as a result, always feel slightly lethargic and mentally dull. The other part of this disorder or the specific "Fibromyalgia Syndrome" symptoms is widespread pain and areas of tenderness. Headaches and depression are not uncommon in patients as well. The root cause of this disorder is still under debate in many research circles, but sleeping pills have been shown to help in treatment.
The body does not have a limitless supply of these "feel good" chemicals. It takes time to rejuvenate and build up the supply again, which normally occurs while we sleep. When people experience that constant pain and lose sleep over it, they''re put in a compromising position of being unable to naturally regulate their biochemicals.
In one of Dr. Muhammad Yunus''s recent studies at the University of Illinois College of Medicine, he found that Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome overlapped 75% of the time.
One of the most successful treatments for symptoms was the administering of basic sleeping pills. Anti-inflammatory pills, over-the-counter meds and steroidal options didn''t work any more than a placebo, which led him to conclude the problem was mostly in the brain chemicals and neurons, rather than the actual muscles.
The reason why insurance companies are hesitant to provide assistance and the Social Security Administration frowns upon Fibromyalgia chronic fatigue is that it''s often mistaken for "laziness."
Since pain isn''t something that''s physically exhibited, it can be discounted. However, more recent studies by Muhammad B. Yunus, Dr. Don Goldenberg and others are putting the disorder on the map, opening the door for the development of Fibromyalgia treatment.
