I have been classified as suffering from Muscle Cramp Fasciculation Syndrome and I have a sleep disorder which requires me to use a machine so that I will continue breathing. I have been tested and told I have at least 21 episodes per hour of low to no breathing. Are these two somehow related???
In theory they can be related, as sleep-breathing problems can aggravate muscle cramping and tension problems. The only way to tell is to treat the sleep breathing problem and see what happens. In practice, they are treated differently.
