I have had fibro for 15 yrs. I experience more fatigue than those without pain. Average sleep need is ten hrs a night. However, since last Dec., when I was rear ended, I have had numerous new pain issues and have cognitive issues. For instance, the first four months there would be no way I write a message like this! Now, I recall a lot of short and long term but still play word association. I am up for about 12 hrs, not able to do much due to knee and arm injuries, then sleep 12 hrs. I am going in for a complete cognitive test soon, but lately have started wondering if it's me giving up as there is isn't much I can do without quite a bit of increased pain or CFS finally creeping in.
I know so much about this but can't make this call for myself.
