Does it take you longer than 30 minutes to fall asleep? Do you stay asleep for less than six hours a night? How often does that happen?

Insomnia is its own condition, but it's so pervasive in fibromyalgia that some doctors consider it a symptom rather than a comorbidity. Either way, treating it is likely to help you feel better overall.
