NOT BREATHING while sleeping Central Sleep Apnea

My 18 year old was diagnosed with central sleep apnea a couple of years ago.  She was placed on Pro vigil.  She is now having symptom similar to narcolepsy and went back to the lab for another study and another dr.  MRI results showed no problem previously. We are scheduled to go to a neurologist later this month.  She has had no major health issues.  Everything I am reading says it can be caused by heart and stroke problems.  Does anyone have this problem?
