I just learned by going to a Neurologist my chronic Fatigue is likely Multiple Sleep Latency. This diagnosis is secondary continued fatigue after being treated for sleep apnea. I have reliably used Cpap for over a year and was wondering why I was still needing Ritalin ( used for ADD ) . My inept sleep medicine MD didnt pick up on it nor notice my fatigure scores i filled out on every visit still were showing minimal improvement. My Sleep apnea got better but not the fatigue. My next move will be to get another sleep study that continues into the next day to document MSL.

I'm sorry you're going through this. I am the same way. My machine shows the c-pap is doing a great job but I mostly sleep in stage 1,2 and REM. My Dr. said that sometimes the machine does the job it's supposed to do but not always make you feel better. I don't take ritalin but I do take provigil. It really has helped although not for as long as I had hoped.
