HGH & FMS Experiment

Where Human Growth Hormone Meets Fibromyalgia

The bike is awesome. I can stay on it for 40-45 minutes and ride at a pretty good clip, without developing a case of Screaming Ass or Jello Legs.

The only physical problem I’m having at all lately us fatigue. Not bone-drenching, oh-my-God-I-want-to-die fatigue, but a daily dose of crap-I-need-a-nap tiredness. And it’s happening pretty much every day.

I suspect it’s because I quit taking benedryl for sleep about 2 months ago. I thought I was sleeping well without it–I don’t wake up much at night–but the fact that I’m increasingly tired suggests I might not be getting enough deep sleep. So I’ll probably wind up back on the benedryl. It was a reasonable experiment; I thought that because I no longer have to get up at a specific time every morning to feed and medicate the dog that I could just fall into natural sleep patterns (i.e. stay up til 2am and sleep until 9 or 10), but if I’m not sleeping well enough, it’s a failed experiement.

Today I’m actually a little stiff; my back aches a bit, but that could be from sleeping in a funky position all night (the danged cat has decided I am his bed, and he’s pinning me to the mattress for about 4 hours every night… I am so much his bitch that I don’t make him move.) It’s not severe pain, so I’m not worried about it.
