CH presents an unusual problem for sleep. First, many attacks disrupt the sleep pattern by the attack itself. Second, the time up dealing with the attack is lost. Third, the fear of sleep develops, causing many to postpone sleep. Forth, the exhaustion and stress which accompany all this.
I have for some time had a special interest in the long-distance single-handed sailing group. I came accross an interesting write-up on the role of sleep in that sport and suggestions for coping with the unusual sleep problems they encounter.
Of special interest is the idea that given a limited time available for sleep it is better to break it up into smaller "nap-sized" chunks than try to take it all at once. Has anyone tried this for CH-related sleep disfunction?
