Questionnaires on sleep and Fibromyalgia will be completed by the volunteer. In addition, the volunteer will complete a sleep diary for at least 7 days and wear an Actiwatch (a wrist watch like device that measures sleep). At completion of the study, participants will be provided a print out of their sleep obtained from the Actiwatch.
Participants may not be in the study if they work night shift (11 pm - 7 am) or have been diagnosed with a condition called sleep apnea.
