My daughter and I are always commiserating with each other about waking up
with an arm so numb we wonder whose arm it is since we went to bed alone!

But I don't even have to have an arm or leg go to sleep to get random nerves
firing. Thankfully the pain is brief but it's very sharp and the only thing I can
focus on for a minute or two.

Fibromyalgia is not fun in the least.
