4. Treat Sleep Apnea
Poor sleep is at the root of fatigue, and sleep apnea – one of the biggest obstacles to a good night’s rest – can go undiagnosed for years. In fact, fibromyalgia patients are 10 times more likely to suffer from sleep apnea than the general population, and that irregular sleep rhythm can lower your pain threshold significantly. Luckily, there are ways to overcome sleep disturbances, beginning with a sleep study to reveal your breathing habits and brain activity while you’re asleep. The next step is treating your apnea with medication or sleep devices to regulate your air intake.
