... heard this, I have had fibro for nearly 15 years but have just started talking in my sleep. anyone else experience this?
Hi Jodie, I haven't seen that about Fibro, VERY interesting!! I am 61, JUST finally got diagnosed with Fibro about 2 months ago. I have been reviewing my whole life in this new light and I believe I had it as a kid, many many symptoms. I also think my mother had it unbeknownst to her, she was 86 when she died and there was no such diagnosis, they just said she had arthritis. Anyway, regarding your post, I have been talking, walking and screaming in my sleep since I was a kid. I stopped the walking as an adult but about once a year or so wake up screaming from a dream and the dream continues for alittle while while my eyes are open till the dream fades and I realize where I am. My husband tells me I still talk in my sleep too. I am very curious where you read that, can you recall? and let me know.
I would love to read that article! Can you reference it for me? I did that as a child the walking in my sleep, & talking. My husband told me the other day I talk in my sleep all the time & I didn't know I still did it! How unreal is that. I know I've done some pretty wild things in my time. At 5 they found me on the middle of a bridge that runs between Bangor & Brewer Maine over a river! How wild is that? At about 27 or so, I woke up by banging my head on a cabinet or pipe under the bathroom sink looking for something. I believe it was the telephone that when I awoke was ringing. I was 1/2 in that cupboard on my hands & knees, sound asleep! I was diagnosed in 1992 with fibro but the doctor believes I probably had it most of my life. They just didn't have a name for it way back then. Was very sensative as a child to banging my knee as kids do or a paper cut was like I was dying ( & still is)or something.
So to answer your question, yes I did & do apparently do these things with fibro. Would love to hear from all you others with fibro if these things have happened to you too...
I learned about this in the early days of fibromylagia. My mother self-diagnosed herself with it some 20 years ago, and subscribed to a newsletter. Sleep disorders of all kinds are common with fibro. I have a crazy sleep history - it will keep you in stitches to hear all the things I've done while asleep! It's funny, but serious also, as I don't get the REM sleep one so desperately needs. I would love to read this article if you get the chance to post it. Thanks for bringing it to everyone's attention. - ElizaJane
