Sleep - Amount Per Day

Sleep - Amount Per Day

Hi all,

I know everyone is different but can you tell me how much sleep you are able to get a night? And if you're able to sleep during the day?

I'm averaging 4-5 hours broken sleep (in bed for 8 hours) and so tired and aching throughout the day but too sore to sleep, and if I do doze off for 40 minutes or so I wake up more jarred & sore.

I used to sleep (and need 8-9) hours a night & at least wake up refreshed.

Any feedback would be great guys.

Thanks

When I was first diagnosed I was given the explanation that even when our bodies are at rest our minds are so busy fighting the pain that it can't find a cause for that deep REM sleep is impossible. It's also the explanation I've been given for the fog, overwhelming brain activity that just temporarily stops our cognitive thought process. I have to be careful what kind of stores I go into because if they're very noisy or crowded with stuff or people I will get overwhelmed. It's an explanation if not a solution. Peace.
