Fascinating, I have always been interested about the subject of sleep. I've certainly had real world experience, of course this is anecdotal. I have several sleep disorders and I think it may be an important factor with me/cfs and Fibromyalgia whether a contributing factor or downstream effect.
I think anyone with our disorder should have a sleep study but don't think this is usually used as a diagnostic tool.
I've read and my neurologist claims that by the time you get tired you may have already had the microsleeps you describe.
Lenny Jason reported in one of his recent talks finding that patients brains were in a Delta brain wave state, and that this can explain our cognitive issues.
I feel I'm really not awake for hours after I'm physically awake and this is after some 10 - 11 hours of sleep. I maybe am awake only for 9, maximum 10 hours.
The concept does make a lot of sense. Your welcome!
I have had 2 sleep studies, but the were worthless because they were conducted by pulmonologists looking only for sleep apnea. To be useful, you need a sleep study conducted by someone who understands sleep archetecture. That is usually a neurologist.
