My husband was first diagnosed with sleep apnea, and prescribed a CPAP. We were perplexed, because he had never been a snorer. When he finally went to a sleep specialist, and neurologist, he was told to use the CPAP as doorstop, because he did not have sleep apnea. He also takes Clonazepam, plus 5 melatonin, everynight. This keeps him from getting out of bed, but not from thrashing around, and yelling, during REM sleep. It is interesting that you have some of the symptoms he is experiencing, with losing your place. We have wondered if this isn't a side effect of the medication. I have encouraged him to get on this website. I think it would help him to connect with other people.
