For several years my fibromyalgia has always been more sever at night, painful enough to cause some sever sleep deprivation. A reply by Beach Girl to one of my postings suggested that I consider any traumatic events I encountered in my early life at night. My reply was that I did not remember any specific night time bad events. However, today, while driving, a memory flash happened. I remembered my older sister was very afraid of the night & would turn on every light in the house in order to make a potty run. I was compelled to accompany her & protect her from "IT". Whatever "IT" was must have been really bad and I became accustomed to being afraid of the 'IT". Additionally, at around the age of 5 my sisters took me to see the movie "Abbot & Costello Meet the Werewolf". The scene where the man morphs into a werewolf was absolutely traumatic. I remember shaking and getting on the floor of the theater and crying. I stayed afraid of the werewolf until I was eighteen. These seemingly innocuous experiences I now accept as having had a profound impact on me AND I believe I have found a link as to why my symptoms become much more pronounced at night. The unresolved fear of these events is probably contributing to my night time symptoms. How does one prove a connection of an event to a TMS symptom?
