Hi believe: I have Fibromyalgia. I've had it all my life but I was diagnosed 20 months ago. I've been to almost every MD and ND in my area. Nobody could help me be able to sleep among other things. However, in the last few months my current Naturopath put me on DHEA cream. I started to sleep through the night for the first time in my life.(I'm 64). Then during this last month I forgot to put it on and I started having all the same symptoms again: restless legs, fatigue, clenching my teeth, and of course no sleep. I've read the book on DHEA and to my amazement all those symptoms are listed. I also take Melatonin but it didn't help to have deep sleep or feeling rested in the am either. It only helped me to fall asleep. If I had to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night I could not fall back to sleep. All my symptoms were so much better when I was on DHEA. I'm back on it again and I'm not going to forget to put it on, ever. !!! I hope this helps,View Thread
