Same with my reporting the widespread pain ( pain in locations I never experienced) that kept me awake and miserable. I would of like to known why this drug caused this adverse reaction? Do I have a undiagnosed disease that it could be related to?
And to think patients that suffer Fibromyalgia are Rx’d Xyrem now ?? and Chronic Pain patients to lower or get off opiods.

I can think of one which matches your description. A condition which can be mistaken for fibromyalgia, and is specifically known to cause joint pain. Thyroid conditions (hypothyroidism in particular). In fact rather a lot of sodium oxybate’s adverse effects are known effects of hypothyroidism.

Note that thyroid conditions are my hobby horse since that greatly enhances sodium oxybate for me. Consider me rather biased in this matter.
