Val - May 28

I just did a sleep study, the doc is putting me on meds, he said i woke up 66 times with in the 4 hour sleep. If my disorder is caused by my Fibromyalgia, why waste my time with meds that going to be addictive and mess me up in the end.

One of the approaches to treating FMS is improving sleep. Waking up 66 times is ALOT. It can make you really sick. I would follow my doctor's suggestions. I have seeep apnea and woke up 44 times an hour. I could hardly function. I now use a CPAP machine to force air down my throat. I wish it could be as easy for me as taking some meds. Best of luck. Sleep deprivation is horible and dangerous.

I also had a sleep study with similar results. I was diagnosed with upper airway resistance. I had an oral appliance made by a dentist specializing in sleep disorders which definitely helped. Do you snore? I did but with the appliance I don't. Has your doctor suggested the CPAP or an appliance? I would check those before starting with meds. Good Luck!
