Sleepiness is a symptom of fibromyalgia! Some people go from sleeping 12 hours a night to 20 when they start the Guaifenesin Protocol as it cycles and clears.
When this happens, your body is likely needing the extra rest and recoup time. Your body is going through alot, working on getting you better, so help your body out. Take those naps when you need them and please be careful with driving during these times! Take the pressure off yourself and think about that Mr Bean show when he has narcolepsy! Having a sense of humor about it will help! 🙂
If you never struggled with this symptom before you started on the protocol, maybe see your doctor to be sure something else isn’t going on here. Not EVERYTHING is fibro after all and I sure wouldn’t want you to be having something else more dangerous going on in your body!
Apparently this is also a Symptom of NMH, (neurally mediated hypotension aka non-cardiogenic syncope) and the Guaifenesin Protocol will not reverse it if that is the cause!
When I increased my dose, I found myself totally dozing off all the time, so switched my higher dose to the night time and it makes me sleep SO much better- at night!! 🙂
Hang in there, this will cycle too!
