Fibromyalgia risk in women is increased with poor sleep habits, but a new treatment uses potential drug targets for poor sleep to reduce the risk of fibromyalgia. The findings come from researchers in Norway who uncovered the association between fibromyalgia risk and poor sleep. The researchers found that the risk of fibromyalgia continued to rise with severity of poor sleep, and the association was strongest among middle-aged and older women.

Women are much more affected by fibromyalgia than men and the prevalence of the pain disorder is roughly three to five percent in the general population. Alternative studies have found that insomnia, nocturnal awakening and fatigue are common symptoms of fibromyalgia, but it has long been unknown if sleep problems could increase the risk of fibromyalgia.
