To sleep, perchance.
Anyone with a sleep problem reading these two articles would assume they can fix the problem by having a sleep test or getting a new bed. These experts do not include in their articles the fact that people who cannot sleep may be suffering from "sleep deprivation" or fibromyalgia.
I suggest you look on the Internet and get a good book about fibro and let your readers know about it and what can be done.

In the July/August issue, the article on "To Sleep, Perchance to Dream" by John Winkelman, M.D., was interesting, as were other articles in that issue. I was wondering if any studies have been made about sleeping problems where there is a low front coming in that brings bad weather. I seem to have some difficulty sleeping if there is a low front or a full moon coming.
Editor's note: Dr. Winkelman replies, "There are no studies addressing this, as far as I am aware."
