Fibromyalgia affects approximately 1 in 20 people. Unfortunately, sufferers are commonly subjected to suspicion, rejection, and disbelief from onlookers and some healthcare professionals because of the invisible nature of the symptoms. With no cure, patients are forced to live with the chronic pain and other symptoms with few options at hand to help them cope. One of the most affected parts of their lifestyle is the ability to fall asleep and gain enough restorative rest.
