        I think that this has gotten a little off track. I would suggest that we keep it in line and on track.

          I have been dealing with an extreme sleep disturbance for the last two years, I have spoken to a couple different docs about it including sleep specialist. Sleep apnea is the first item they want to rule out.
          Naps are great, start looking for places to take a nap during the day, 20 to 30 minutes is supposed to be prime. I used my car as my napping place many times. Sleep is very important, I need to work on mine.
          I have also been Rx'd 10mg oxybutynin for the last 5 months, which is not making the problem any better

            If you can find out the cause of the fatigue, that is the preference. In order to do that, it may take some time. In the meantime, the suggestion of a 20-30 minute nap when you are generally more fatigues may help. I would also recommend that you stay away from excess caffeine as a way of managing it.
