I can sleep all day, stay up for about 2 hours and then I have to sleep again, but at night I find it hard to get to sleep and my sleep is very restless.

Best answer:

Answer by Mr. Peachy®
Taking drugs for fibromyalgia is like putting a band aid on a leaky hose. It won’t fix it. The only relief you’re likely to get from fibro is by finding a way to get a good night’s sleep (without prescriptions).

If I don’t adhere to this protocol, the sleep goes out the window, and the symptoms return with a vengeance...
