Fibro sufferers dread mornings, it’s like waking up with a hangover from hell without the night before.
Un-replenished sleep can lead to waking unrefreshed. Not having quality REM sleep leads to your body not repairing itself fully during sleep causing you to wake up to high levels of stiffness, fatigue, pain levels, sensitivities and a general feeling of being hit by a bus. Trying to get to the bathroom in a straight line can be challenging. You feel like you are in a pinball machine as you knock your legs on the bed post and your shoulders as you walk through a doorway.
Furthermore, your tendons can be constricted causing your walking to be restricted and painful. However, don’t right off your day! It can take up to a couple of hours to come round and loosen up.
