Correlation between neck injury and sleep disorders
I have been diagnosed with several sleep disorders including idiopathic hypersomnia, excessive daytime sleepiness, obstructive sleep apnea, and episodes of central sleep apnea, all of which appeared quite late in life, age 44,(debilitating in 2008), after a severe neck injury, that greatly aggravated my pre-existing fibromyalgia, and is still causing me chronic pain, (headaches, migraines, severe muscle spasms, and weakness, etc.) and I'm still treating with trigger point injections, medication, and therapy. (ongoing since 2003). I would like to know if anyone out there has any information as to whether there could be a link between neck injuries and sleep problems, as I don't fit any of the other characteristics, i.e. body type, heredity, etc. and would like to know if there are any articles that look at the correlation between neck injuries and sleep problems, and where I could read them. Thank you so much.

Sleep apnea has an increased occurrence in those with spinal cord injuries. You can access this article at this URL: http://www.talkaboutsleep.com/sleep-disorders/archives/Snoring_apnea_spinalcord.htm
