Just wondering whether anyone with UC has a history of sleeping problems and in particular sleep apnea. The thinking is that sleep apnea may affect the immune system in the same way that it has been proven to affect the heart ie years and years of stopping breathing 20 times a night for a few seconds can have its toll on your digestive system or lead to a whacky (technical term!) immune system.
Ive read of 2 cases on the web where a person corrected their sleep apnea via surgery or a sleep mask and their colitis also went away some months later.
Not saying that sleep disorder is the cause of UC for everyone but as my doc say "if 10 people walk into my office complaining of migraines there can be 10 different reasons for this"
I know this topic has been discussed before but I was just wondering whether anyone had new opinions on it.
