Hi, Akkami. Welcome to the forum!
You ask a good question. I've had Fibro for so long, I really can't say whether I get to the deepest level of sleep. I was put on Nortriptyline to help with sleep over 20 years ago....before that, I'd go to sleep fine, but wake up every morning about 3:00 and not be able to go back. I'm still on it. Now I've added Clonzepam, because the sleeplessness was starting to creep back. My doctor says until you're getting sleep, it's useless to try to treat any of the other problems of Fibro.
I still can't say I feel very refreshed when I wake up, but I do know I've slept!
Have you tried anything for your sleep problem? Also - do you like your doctor? (That's so important - having one you can communicate with.)
Have you checked out our first thread, "Fibro 101"? It's full of helpful information about Fibro. It's definitely not an easy condition to live with, but once you find what works for you, things can get a lot better. Just having a diagnosis was a relief to many of us - "someone believes me!"
This forum is great for support. We not only believe you, we understand....not that we all have exactly the same symptoms, or use the same methods to help ourselves....but that really doesn't matter. A lot of people (and even some doctors) still don't even believe in Fibro, so it's a great comfort to be able to talk to others going through many of the same struggles.
I hope you'll keep posting, so we can get to know you better.
