PNBD is unusual as it seems to have no affect on those who are struck with the disease, but generally causes mild irritation to the bedmates of those afflicted. Until recently there has been little effort to develope a therapy to relieve the symptoms of PNBD. Recent studies have indicated, however, that PNBD can cause severe irritation and discomfort to a bedmate on PAP therapy, especially those who use a FFM (Full Face Mask) as part of thier necessary treatment. The discomfort is often stimulated by the PNBD sufferer's propensity to wait until thier bedmate spends 10 minutes or more getting his/her mask adjusted just right, the hose positioned properly and is lying in bed all settled for a good night's sleep to feel the overwhwlming and irresistable urge to start blabbing incessantly which usually involves the asking of several questions. These questions generally range from unnecessary (e.g. Do you mind if I sit up and read a while?) to completely innane (e.g. What are you thinking about?). Females are up to five times more likely than males to have PNBD, while males are five times more likely to suffer from its affects.
It is this author's opinion that an effective treatment or cure for this desease is long overdue.
