Epilepsy
Having been diagnosed with "suspected" epilepsy, searching around I have found that it is not uncommon for this to be associated with sleep apnea.

Does anyone have experience with what looks to be an interconnected problem.

RE: Epilepsy
Sorry to hear about that diagnosis Phill. I have a friend who has had epilepsy as a kid and was diagnosed a year or two ago with OSA. Not sure of the correlation with him having had epilepsy all his life (he's mid 50's now).

Hope you find therapy improves this.

RE: Epilepsy
Today my neurologist said there was no connection between OSA and epilepsy, despite a cursory search on the interweb bringing up numerous hits on the subject.

On OSA and CPAP, I pointed out that I was unhappy that I was only getting 4-5 hours sleep a night, reply, stop using CPAP.

I mean, really, what are these doctors for?

RE: Epilepsy
If neurologist Doc feels that there is no connection between epilepsy and OSA, then why does he entertain the idea that you should stop using it.. Is he also a sleep certified Physician? If you are using a CPAP then I assume that another sleep certified Physician has DX'd you with OSA and prescribed the CPAP. Maybe there is another neurologist in town..
