I have Sleep apnea too and I now use a Cpap machine. This machine is the reason I found out I had FM. When I first got the Cpap I slept great and felt wonderful. Then I started noticing I was extremely tired even after a full night of sleeping with the Cpap machine. I thought the machine was broken My doctor looked at the machine and said it was working fine. He sent me to a RA doctor after hearing of my other complaints. The RA doctor did an exam and said I had FM. It is strange how you can go to the doctor for one thing and end up finding out you have something different.
