I have a doctor’s appointment today regarding my lack of sleep. I have been putting off going to the doctor since this started a few months ago but I finally decided to give in to my husband’s requests for me to go. I get tired of going to the doctor because it often results in “there’s nothing we can do for you” type of appointment.
I think that some blood work or something is needed to find out where the change in my body is occurring to cause these severe sleep issues. I really don’t feel that it is related to my ME/CFS or Fibromyalgia. I don’t know how to explain it but the sleep issues I have been experience differ from those that I normally have due to my ME/CFS & FM.
I also wonder if maybe some of my sleep issues are hormone related. For the past several months my menstrual cycle has been off somewhat. I used to be regular each month – like clock work. Now my cycle may come either every three weeks or every five weeks and the number of days can vary from 4 – 8 per cycle. I am 39 years old now so I guess it is possible those changes can be starting.
I hope I find out some news today. I’ll update when I know something.
