Do you have fibromyalgia? You may or may not know that this disorder and another one called sleep apnea are commonly linked together. This article talks about the association (http://chronicfatigue.about.com/od/whyfmscfsarelinked/a/sleepapneaFMS.htm). If you have both, then the sleep apnea can worsen the symptoms of fibromyalgia. I have not had that painful condition but I have had severe sleep apnea, a painful ordeal in a different way. Both of them can lead to depression and loss of hope. If you have both conditions, don’t learn to live with them. Learn to eliminate one of them from your life and reduce your pain. Since they are linked, it may be possible to be free of fibromyalgia if you can solve your Sleep Apnea problem. Did you know that 90% of people with sleep apnea don’t even know it?

A family friend had surgery to cure his sleep apnea condition. It was a procedure to remove excess tissue from the soft palate and pharynx. Unfortunately, he had to suffer through recovery and his sleep apnea eventually returned. If that was me, I would have been pretty upset at the whole experience. I read an article on NPR that documented one person’s journey through Sleep Apnea surgery (http://www.npr.org/2011/03/14/134467782/how-to-beat-sleep-apnea-cut-it-out-surgically). In the article, the sleep specialist was discussing the same surgery that my family friend went through and said “… patients need a series of surgeries to completely treat apnea. And even then, success rates aren’t high; they’re effective only 20 to 30 percent of the time.” At the end of the article, she said “noninvasive measures are always the first lines of defense”. I wonder if the patient mentioned in the article, Daniel Sheiner, is still Sleep Apnea free today?
At the extreme end of the scale, an article was published today about a young girl whose Sleep Apnea surgery went awry (http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/wireStory/reversal-sought-california-girls-brain-death-25936725). I hope this doesn’t happen very often. Whenever you have surgery, you are taking a risk that something may go horribly wrong.
