Hello from Scotland. I was diagnosed with Fibro in August this year, however, although I do get pain and various strange symptoms, my main complaint is sleepiness. I was also diagnosed with Sleep Apnea in March this year and now use a CPAP mask, but the overwhelming sleepiness continues so I...
I'm new to the forums and have been reading a bit. I have so many symptoms that no doctors (and I see many) will give me an answer or solution other than medications that will make me sicker. I feel like I'm slowly dying, literally, and I can't for the life of me understand why doctors simply...

I wished to GOD that I had never had the surgery on my left shoulder. The pain is 10 times worse than it was before the surgery. I take 200 MG a day of tramadol and it doesn't even begin to touch the pain. My PCP won't give me anymore than that. The last time I talked to the surgeon that did...
Hello everyone -
I’ve just been recently diagnosed, but have known for several years that I probably had fibro. My mom has it and was disabled because of it and she had seen symptoms developing in me. At her request, I went to see a doctor about it and he was none too happy that I was telling...

Okay, I have to ask.....do you find using a CPAP machine with your fibromyalgia a help? I have been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea but I know I can't sleep with that mask on my face. I am awake many times in the night because of pain - I need to move, so I know that face mask would end up on the...
I am new to this forum. I had to retire in 2011 due to CAD and pain. I have always been upbeat and positive, and I used to be able to keep up with the house chores, although I have never been obsessive compulsive. Between the brain fog and the pain that takes over, the morning is the WORST.
I realize this is a fibromyalgia forum but does anyone have to use a CPAP machine as well? If so do you find that it helps. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia as well as obstructive sleep apnea and I have been using the CPAP machine since mid April. As far as I can tell it does nothing for me...
