Cyclic Alternating Pattern (CAP) Sleep Disorder

Hi Lisa the doctors have not connected the fibro and CAP. They do connect the fibro and insomnia. The CAP was identified when we did a polysomniograph. The doctors have been unable to treat her insomnia and are not sure of the significance of the CAP. We live in South Africa and have been unable to find a sleep specialist who can help

Hi, @fionagent – that is challenging that your daughter's doctors have been unable to treat her insomnia thus far. As you mentioned they have made a connection between her fibromyalgia and her insomnia, I thought I'd tag a few members who have talked about fibromyalgia to comment on whether they (or their loved one they have mentioned who has it) have experienced insomnia, such as @sandytoes14 @mamacita @graceandpeace @astaingegerdm @airey2 @noydb, and if so, how they have dealt with it.

What types of medication or other sleep therapies has your daughter tried thus far, fionagent?
