    Hi @Toffee26 and welcome to the community. I noticed your other post in Introductions too. There are a number of fibromyalgia sufferers here, so you will soon get some answers to your question. If you type the word 'fibromyalgia' into the Search box at the top of the page that will take you to some of the discussions, blogs and other things on the site.
    You may have found them already, but the Fibromyalgia Association site looks as if it might be of use to you, too. It's at http://www.fmauk.org/contactsmenu/supportgroups
    Welcome again, and I hope we may prove to be of service to you,
    With warmest best wishes,

    Dr has put me on sleeping tablets have 2 take 1 a night for 4days then 3nights off ..then 4 on 3off am hoping it's going to help so far I have 4hrs sleep the 1st night & 2hrs the 2nd night .. I try and go for a walk outside everyday if possible & keep busy with chores at home & watch a lot of Netflix.My body is exhausted but my brain seems to be active all the time are let u know how I am when r finished the short course of pills it drives me mad not being able to sleep ..I get really jealous of people who can fall asleep just like that ..but I did got told as we get older we need less sleep & with fibromyalgia it causes sleep disturbances..never ending circle .
    Take care speak to you soon xxx
