“If you don’t get a good nights sleep you’re not going to get well. It really is that simple”. Dr. Murphee


The First Symptom

ME/CFS and FM doctors agree that getting as good a night’s sleep as possible is essential for improving your health.

[/fright]Dr. Bested, an ME/CFS/FM practitioner asserts that “improving sleep, even a little, can make a tremendous difference to a person’s […] quality of life”.

“The most effective way to eliminate fatigue and pain in CFS/FMS is to get eight to nine hours of solid, deep sleep each night on a regular basis.” Dr. Teitelbaum
Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome are not sleep disorders and improving your sleep will not cure them but getting better sleep will help you feel better (and vice versa).

Studies indicated that just a few nights of poor sleep result in increased sensitivity to pain and increased fatigue – two key elements of ME/CFS and FM.

Plus studies suggest that up to 20% of ME/CFS patients may not have ME/CFS at all, but an identifiable and treatable sleep disorder that could be uncovered during a sleep study. Eighty percent of people with the most common sleep disorder - sleep apnea - undiagnosed.
