HOW CAN FIBROMYALGIA AFFECT OUR SLEEP?

Most people with fibromyalgia experiences non-restorative sleep -- restless, light, or insufficiently refreshing. Disordered sleep might lead to lower levels of serotonin, which results to increased pain sensitivity. Once you start experiencing these symptoms, it would be best to seek medical attention because chronic pain is something you wouldn’t want to live with. 
WHAT IS FIBROMYALGIA? Fibromyalgia is characterized by chronic widespread pain and a heightened response to pressure. Fibromyalgia symptoms are not restricted to pain, other symptoms include debilitating fatigue, sleep disturbance, and joint stiffness. Some people also report difficulty with swallowing, bowel and bladder abnormalities, numbness and tingling, and cognitive dysfunction. Not all people with fibromyalgia experience all associated symptoms. Fibromyalgia is estimated to affect 2–8% of the population, with a female to male incidence ratio that is somewhere between 7:1 and 9:1.
