In Reply to: Does lack of ox. from sleep apnea cause or bring on Clusters? posted by wendy on April 27, 2001 at 04:27:35:

I read a study done on a 35 CH sufferers and all had some mild form of sleep apnea, and 80% had severe sleep apnea (more than 10 per hour). Now there is no correlation between CH's and sleep apnea, but the opposite surely shows signs of correlation. The lack of oxygen can certainly trigger attacks. If you have both Ch's and sleep apnea, treating the sleep apnea can decrease the occurence of night-time CH's.
