Question can't get rested

i've posted here a few times, but i'll give you a little background:

1) had EBV 15 years ago. saw a homeopath, symptoms (which had gone on for a year) went away.
2) have had fibro symptoms for at least a year
3) was dx'ed with fibro in January

now, i had an "acute viral syndrome" (per my doctor) for 2 1/2 weeks. nausea, dizziness, fever. i just got over it about 4 days ago.

my problem is: i am exhausted, but no matter how much sleep i get, i still feel like i could sleep for years. this has been going on a couple of days.

does this sound like the fibro was aggravated by the virus?

my gen. practitioner is also my rheumatologist, who dx'ed the fibro.

sorry to be so brief, but i'm exhausted.

Re: can't get rested

Sorry you're going through that.

I've been getting very tired lately and I think that it's just the Fibromyalgia wearing me down.

Maybe the viral infection has aggravated the Fibro and you're 'sleeping it off'.

Hopefully that's all it is, but I would definitely check with doc.

Re: can't get rested

hi there, You probably just need more time to rest. Sometimes I need a month to get better from a flu. Also you might be sleeping, but not getting enough or any REM sleep. Are you restless or a light sleeper?

Hope you get to feeling better soon. - Andy
