The Lack Of Mobility
For those who suffer from fibromyalgia, life can be hard with not having the mobility that you use to have. Fibro attacks the joints and limits mobility in the everyday life of the sufferer. This normally happens in the morning as the individual is waking up and realizing that he is stiff and sore from a rough night’s sleep. As the patient drifts off to sleep and sometimes tends not to move much, the joints and muscles begin to stiffen and constrict causing a lack of blood flow which makes for lower circulation. Some victims have a side issue that appears after they have had fibromyalgia for a number of months like Sleep Apnea or Restless Legs Syndrome which can make sleep even more non-enjoyable. Fatigue, mood swings and other behavioral issues can results as the sleep depravity takes hold.
