Q: 

Is it possible my sleep disorder is actually a need for nasal decongestants every night?

A: Hi John - thanks for your question.  I''m not sure if a CPAP machine is for you either.  Only a medical doctor who specializes in sleep disorders can help you with that.    On another note, have you consulted an allergist or an ENT specialist who might be able to help you with the allergies?  Maybe you have, but if not maybe that is a place to start.  But I will tell you after reading much of what is written about apnea, it is not something you want to neglect.   You can read more about sleep apnea and its treatments and preventions at these pages on our site.   Hope this helps.  All the best, sue (moderator)...

Q: 

Melatonin and Cyclical sleep Disorder ?

A: I can''t say I''ve read up anything on the disease or melatonin, although I do know that''s a hormone secreted by our bodies to make us sleep or something like that, so I daresay it''s a synthetic hormone to replace a lack thereof. Goodluck in your search, do let us know your findings! Cheers Sally Hi Klawk, I hope that sleep disorders are not pre alzheimers. I have a sort of sleep disorder. Mine is called restless leg.
