Don't know if this will help you, but I found some very soft fleece blankets at Walgreens. And their price is not bad.

Hi Toni. I can understand what its like to have insurance that won't pay for medicine you need. It happened to me a lot when I had an HMO. I have insomnia issues and I take trazodone for it which I believe is a cheaper prescription. If you can't get your sleep issues worked out, maybe your doctor can help you sleep better with medication your insurance will pay for. I fought being on sleep medication for years, but am glad now that I can take something. Either way, I hope you sleep better because sleeping poorly makes everything hurt worse when you have fibromyalgia. Best wishes!

That sounds like a good idea, Gertrude. Thank you! I'd like to have another microfiber blanket for that. Yum! I probably need a better pillow, too. My shoulders have been aching, I guess from the pressure where my old pillow is flattening out. emoticon

Thanks, Michelle!

I just recently got off of Effexor (because my insurance wouldn't pay for Cymbalta for fibromyalgia), and it has destroyed my sleep schedule. I find myself taking power naps instead of really, truly sleeping. Hopefully, this will settle back to normal soon!

Hi Toni. Welcome to the group. I also have rather bad insomnia at times so I understand what that can be like. I hope you get some sleep! Take care, Michelle

Hope you catch up on sleep. I spend 2 sleepless nights to 1 night of about 6 hours sleep. I know how hard it is. And the snow isn't helping a thing. Just put an extremely soft blanket on your bed on top of your sheet and lay on it with another one over you. That seems to help more than anything.
