I discovered two causes of fibromyalgia. I was put on temezepam for sleep and after a little while I developed fibromyalgia. It blocks rem sleep. So titrate down from your narcotics and stay on rx sleep meds. It takes about 3 weeks to correct the issue. The other cause I know of is lyme disease. The blood test for lyme disease is only 50% accurate so if sleep aids don't help you definately have it. There is a 100% accurate psa urine test if you'd like to know right away. BTW I have no medical degree.View Thread
