Falling Asleep at the Physical Therapist Office

I went to a physical therapist for an evaluation to see if there was anything they could help me with for issues associated with fibromyalgia. We discovered my two biggest problems are a severe lack of balance, extremely stiff and tight back and shoulders, and a lack of stamina in standing, walking, etc. due to the above.

I was there for a over 2 hours because, well, I fell asleep on their lovely heating pad and nerve stimulation unit. (They wanted to try out the nerve stimulation unit on my shoulders and upper back to see if it helped relax them. It did!) They didn’t realize I was still there because I didn’t ring the bell to tell them it was done because, well, I was asleep! I asked if I could have one of those at home. It was wonderful! I bet I could even sleep past 3:00 in the morning if I had one of those! LOL!

Anyway, I’m to do home exercises and go back once a week for a while to do things there and continue to be evaluated. I didn’t want to go, but now I’m glad I did because I think they can help me after all! 😀
