Sleep Complications in Fibromyalgia
Most fibromyalgia patients also suffer from sleep complications. In fact, despite the high levels of fatigue which they tend to experience, most patients are also not getting enough sleep because of these sleep complications. Those who fail to have regular restorative sleep are more likely to fail in retaining and recalling information properly.
The aforementioned sleep complications include sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia. They prevent fibro patients from getting restorative sleep which is vital for proper functioning of the body and mind. Hence, lack of restorative sleep can lead to cognitive complications such as memory loss, inability to concentrate and other mind-related issues.
