New Issue: Central Sleep Apnea

Postby TiredMom » Tue Dec 22, 2009 9:51 pm

Preston's added a new issue to the mix. He was just diagnosed with Central Sleep Apnea-NOS and Sleep Movement Disorder. This particular problem has been linked to Chiari (which he has), as well as the other problems he has (Microduplication Syndrome 15q and Mitochondrial Disorder). Whether this will change anything in terms of the Chiari management, who knows. He'll see the NSG on the 6th of January for his 6 month follow up. Will know more then.
