3. Supplement with Oxygen

Fibromyalgia can supress all of your muscles while you sleep, and in some cases, that can slow your lungs and heart so much that less oxygen gets to your brain. In turn, you wake up more tired than you were when you went to bed, and your mind and body will suffer. One solution is to use an oxygen tank during the night: some fibro patients find that after sleeping with a cannula, their mind is fresh and alert when they wake up in the morning. Ask your doctor to perform a sleep test in order to determine whether supplemental oxygen may be worthwhile for you.
