No refreshing sleep in 10 years :(
I have had a problem with sleep for 10 years. When I wake up in the morning I feel like I didnt sleep, even though I was in bed for 9-10 hours and thought I was sleeping. My sleep study showed Alpha Wave Intrusion/Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome but didnt offer me a lot more than that. I have symptoms of Fibromyalgia as well.
What can be done about Alpha Intrusions? Just Xyrem? That seems like such a frightening medication.
I have been tested for everything and tried so many things. Vitamins, supplements, CPAP machine, gluten free diet, losing weight, exercising. The one constant in my life since age 17 is that I feel awful in the morning and I've very tired/achy throughout the day. Sometimes I can't make it to work because I can't get out of bed. Its truly painful.
