I am pretty new to this messageboard. A pity by the looks of it. I've been a CH for 14 years and working in the internet for about 6 and I have only just bothered searching for sites regarding CH's. I guess its the 'No one can help me' attitude I got into.

Sounds like Sleep apnea's been discussed quite a bit here. After reading a number of posts I realise quite a number of people suffer CH's at night. I very rarely suffer at night usually 10 - 12 in the morning.

My thought on sleep apnea was that the deprivation of correct sleep when someone is stopping breathing while sleeping and affecting the sleep process. REM and all that (Not an expert as you can gather). Could cause a knock on if not at night at least during the day.

Do you not think that the sleep process intended to readdress chemical inbalances in the body could by affected by this breaking down of the sleep rythmn.

Then again as Bob P says it could be that CH's cause sleep apnea as apposed to the other way round.
