My wife swears that I have sleep apnea. Somehow it wakes her up when I stop breathing. (Maybe she's grown accustomed to my snoring and notices when it stops.) It is apparently worse after getting a buzz from imbibing Kentucky corn squeezings. Anyhow, careful monitoring of alcohol consumption has helped. I'm beginning to think that it might have some connection with CH (reduction of oxygen flow to the brain or something). Restless leg syndrome plagued me for years. Since I have had sciatica due to some sort of disc problem, which was cured with anti-inflammatory drugs, I thought that the RLS might also be originating in the spine, so I tried taking aspirin every night, and it fixed the problem. (I'm blessed with a cast iron stomach.) In my case, I'm almost positive that there's no connection between RLS and CH. I have no symptoms of anything like fibro.
