Study: Fibro Pain Intensity and Duration Not Predicted by Poor Sleep

Fibro Daily January 20, 2013

A new study says that a lack of sleep doesn’t necessarily predict the pain intensity or duration found in fibromyalgia.

In April 2012, Science Daily said that fibromyalgia patients often suffer from poor sleep. Now, The Journal of Pain says that while a lack of sleep does worsen other aspects of life, it doesn’t affect the intensity and pain found in fibromyalgia. Fibro Files notes that, “The authors noted that the effects of impaired sleep, such as fatigue and inactivity, may play more significant roles in clinical pain than measures of sleep duration or insomnia.”
