> Have you ever looked into the possibility of a link between sleep quality and fibromyalgia? From what I have read (it has been suggested to my father that some of his aches&pains symptoms could be this) I think there may be a strong connection along the lines that abnormal sleep pattens throughout the night may disrupt the body's restorative efforts for muscles, tendons and ligaments. I don't know what the latest research has been however.

I've also heard of this link. While this may seem very simplistic, a friend of mine has tried herbals such as Melatonin and Valerian for better sleep. She also gets a full body massage weekly. With this combination she's had a significant reduction in her symptoms. Also, see the thread on this board re. 5HTP and L-Trytophan.
