Does anyone here struggle to get a good nights sleep? A neuropathic consultant I am seeing is convinced that CMT-1A and RLS are related, and the real reason for "fatigue" in CMT is actually due to the incredibly poor quality of sleep.
Just to make it known, fatigue and daytime sleepiness are not the same things. If you feel that you are able to fall asleep in most places, any time of the day, this is daytime somnolence. With research that's been done (see below), it seems that sleep apnoea resulting in daytime somnolence is a major problem in CMT, which is being brushed aside for the idiotic reason of mislabeling it as fatigue due to muscle inefficiency. If it was physical fatigue, stamina would eventually overcome this, as it does with anything that is repetitively physically exerting.
