Central Sleep Apnea....result Of Dysautonomia?

Recommended Posts

I have been diagnoised with Central sleep apnea.( apena resulting from brain not regulating breathing properly) Since Dysautonomia is a malfunction of the autonomic system, and breathing is part of it's functions, then would it be possible that this apena is a result of having dysautonomia?

Anyone dealing with this?

Nymph..... Yes, I have wakened gasping for air, and my heart races occasionally. I have had disabling fatigue for years, and that led me to having a sleep study. Do you have a fatigue problem?

It would make sense....

.I don't gasp for air very often either. I guess most of the time I am not aware. I was surprised to find I had central sleep apnea. Apparently it can lead to a stroke or heart failure...so getting a sleep study would be wise if you are dealing with serious fatique. It needs to be treated.
