I have had a diagnosis of CFS about 10 years ago. ...

  • I have had a diagnosis of CFS about 10 years ago. After research i bought a machine that measured my oxygen over night and found it to be below 92% most of the night, I only started Diazepam 2 months ago and only take 5mg once a day in the evening. Im now wondering is it the diazepam or my one onf the causes to my CFS

    Any advice welcome

    Thanks

  • Hi Maria, thank you for your

    Hi Maria, thank you for your reply! a little technical for me I dont "understand Neurological perturbations namely involving neurotransmitter balance"

    I stopped using the diazepam and it made know difference to my oxygen saturations they were still low at night. I was referred to a sleep apnea clinic and they gave me the diagnoses of sleep apnea and i now have a CPAP machine i use at night. I have only had it for 2 weeks and on two of the day i wore my SPo monitor, my oxygen levels were better but i notice they are still in the low side and my baseline is around 93% still not great. Do you have any advice on what steps i should take if i continue to monitor and my levels are still not great?

  • CFS patients do report

    CFS patients do report subjective symptoms of respiratory difficulty, though perfectly commensurate documentation of objective evidence to that, is not complete. Neurological perturbations namely involving neurotransmitter balance are often a common vehicle to CFS, and evidently may affect breathing centre( in the brain) function. More, sleep apnea, and other pulmonary or heart issues may lie behind CFS, and concomitantly cause respiratory problems-ex translated in reduced oxygen saturation. All those issues should be addressed.
    On the other hand, diazepam is known to affect central( breathing) and cause, especially at an advanced age, breathing difficulty!
