Hi Charly..I too thought I was getting a good nights sleep but would wake up in aching pain. My Rheumy told me that it's the level of sleep and not remaining in a sustained REM state that affects fibromites. Waking up several times to change position or going off to the bathroom interrupts the sleep cycle. I have a friend who is on disability for fibro and she sleeps like a log. I personally would not rule out a dx of fibro based purely on sleep. We all have strange and different symptoms with this disorder. For some of us the Fog is worse than the pain. I am sure others will welcome you and give their opinions.
