Sleep. I hate how much of my life I need to spend sleeping.

Sweetiepie, you aren't alone. I took a nap yesterday, after which my hubby said I snore. 😴Lol...payback! I got so sleepy while driving today it scared me. I kept shaking my head and smacking my cheeks. I fell asleep in the docs waiting room. I'm speaking way more than ever. I get up and go to bed on the same schedule every day. But I'm falling asleep out of nowhere.🙏🌼

I'm constantly tired as well. Many times I'm so tired but still unable to sleep. I'm thinking it's most likely the chronic muscle inflammation/fatigue. But, it could also be a symptom of numerous other syndroms, have either of you checked your iron levels lately? It could also be the thyroid or just a side effect of the many meds we all take,

Faerygrl, I'm on extra iron because I'm almost anemic, so the doc says. I've only been anemic after childbirth and surgery. But for the last four months I'm borderline. I also have hypothyroidism and sjogrens, besides the fibromyalgia. I call the 3 diseases my "triple whammy fatigue." 🙏🌼

I'm on extra iron, vitamin D, B12, Fibro-Response,multivitamins etc...maybe it is from all my other meds. Good idea. I'll talk to my doctor. We were supposed to go to a movie tonight but I rainchecked my BF and said I'd cook dinner and we'd watch Dexter instead. I felt bad but tomorrow I work at 6 am then I'm going to give his niece an art lesson and go swimming and I'm going to need energy for that.
