ME/CFS: A disease at war with itself
We can all agree that ME/CFS is a nasty disease, particularly in its severe form, but there are abundant nasty diseases in the world. What is unique and particularly confounding about our disease is that so much controversy surrounds it, and not only surrounds it, but invades it too.

    Does anyone get insomnia/poor sleep as a post-exertional symptom?

    Yep.

    Have you noticed what your symptoms are when your insomnia occurs?

    Hmm, basically a wired feeling. Brain is unable to calm down and fall alseep. Of course, I feel worse the next day if I haven't slept well the previous night.

    YES - I have poor feverish sleep with night sweats and body pain, bad nightmares and only "half sleep".

    I have to do very little activity for the next day or two to get my sleep back to "normal".

    yes, usually a bad spell of sleep is a sign of over doing things for me.

    Yep. Me too. If I've overdone it, I have a ton of trouble shaking that wired feeling at night. If I've managed to stay within my comfortable limits, I tend to get to sleep okay.

    Yes.. over doing it can either cause worst insomina issues then I usually have or go the complete opposite other way and cause hypersomina for me. I never know what symptoms Im going to trigger when I over do things.
