My Aches And Pains Keep Me Up At Night ... What Keeps You From Being Asleep?

My Aches And Pains Keep Me Up At Night ... What Keeps You From Being Asleep?

It seem like when I am more active in the day ... My pains, nerves, and spasms ... are more crazy at night ...

The muscles of a fibro sufferer are always in a taught state because of lactic acid that has built up in them and doesn't get released as it should after physical activity. We are chemically imbalanced. When an athlete relaxes after exercise their muscles relax too, but ours don't - they remain taught, so when we are physically active the muscles get even tighter and therefore, at the end of the day, trying to sleep is more difficult because very tight muscles will restrict nerve endings, and we know that nerves transmit pain signals to the brain. I know that I have a better sleep if I have had a relaxed day and try never to push myself physically because I pay dearly for it.

Yes they become worse at night because your body is trying to relax and when that happens you will feel the pain double I also suffer from insomnia however my psychiatrist prescribed me Seroquel for many reasons however it helps me to sleep

Sending soft hugs 🤗 and prayers 🙏🏻

I have been having full body muscle spasms. It It started with my left leg and continued until they take over my full body from foot to head. I had an EEG and a CAT scan done and everything came back normal. We still have no answer. My Dr. is working on my medications and adjusting them to see what will help stop the muscle spasms. For the first time I've had a severe migraine headache that took about three days to go away. My spasms have stopped for now.
