How many times do we hear the lament: “Can someone help me with my fibromyalgia?”
Fibromyalgia (and much of chronic pan) is not caused by overactive nerves or any number of other theories and is much more common than thought.
Through my work described in chapter 1, I have discovered that most fibromyalgia patient’s symptoms are caused by sleep apnea, not the other way around. I am not a lone voice on this – other medical professionals are coming to the same conclusion. I just happen to do a lot of work with this on my patients.
Many patients have the three big symptoms: (1) hurt all over, (2) tired easily and (3) mental fog. Until now doctors have not been looking for sleep apnea as the cause with these chronic fibromyalgia patients.
Many will say “I don’t have sleep apnea”. This too is addressed in chapter one. It is not the snoring and gasping for air type of sleep apnea, it is the shallow breather (which most people are unaware of) that is the problem. For you swallow breathers, it’s not about how much sleep you get; it’s about how much oxygen you get.
There is a “Quick Start” chapter which boils down the information in the way I do when I explain it to my patients.
Don’t worry about the dreaded CPAP machine. Some will need it but most will not. There are many good alternatives and even more appropriate treatments.
Not everyone with sleep apnea develops chronic pain and thus fibromyalgia. For those without pain who suffer with sleep apnea, the ideas and suggestions for treatment can be very helpful.
