I read about a new sleep disorder that is particular to Fibro patients. It is called UARS-Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome. The article states that even normal CPAP isn't effective and it stated that CPAP patients should be offered temporomandibular advancement devices to help alleviate the drawbacks of CPAP. I am progressively becoming worse with all my symptoms. I started using the CPAP in January of 05 and in March had a wreck because I fell asleep at the wheel. It is to the point I feel hopeless. I am a Kg teacher and I was so tired one day a few weeks ago that I layed my head down on my desk while the children were at lunch. My assistant brought them back and taught them the rest of the day. I slept through until the end of the day at 3:00. I lose things all the time in my class. My assistant has to search for it or my children will see where I layed it and tell me. It is really getting so embarassing. I have fatigue along with brain fog, irritable bowel syndrome, sleep apnea, pain, stiffness, restless legs, and a doctor that acts like I am totally crazy everytime I go to see him. My file is so big they almost have to carry it with a dolly. I feel like my quality of life is nil. It is getting to the point that I feel I have to explain my illness everytime I do something stupid. Even after writing appointments down on calendars, I still forget about them. Is there any relief out there for this feeling. I feel like I am going crazy and am about to have a nervous breakdown. I take Cymbalta, Provigil, use the CPAP machine, take frequent massages, and still have no relief. I am up right now at 12:16 a.m. because of insomnia. I don't know how much longer I can take this.
