Individuals with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) have evolving sleep and respiratory pathophysiology over their lifetimes. Across the lifespan of DMD, various sleep-related breathing disorders (SRBD) have been described, including obstructive sleep apnea, central sleep apnea, and nocturnal hypoventilation. In addition to SRBD, individuals with DMD can be affected by insomnia, chronic pain and other factors interfering with sleep quality, and daytime somnolence.

ConclusionOur findings show a strong prospective relationship between insomnia symptoms and the transition from relatively localized to generalized pain.SignificanceThis study shows that people with LP conditions are at much higher risk of developing WSP if they also have significant insomnia symptoms. The elevated risk is evident after 24  months and increases in a dose‐dependent manner regarding the degree of exposure to insomnia symptoms. Local pain conditions are quite common in primary care, and an evaluation of the insomnia symptoms is highly recommended since the most common sleep problems can be treated effe...

This study is a meta-analysis — a study which includes many studies that are deemed similar enough to lump together, in order to increase the numerical power of the study and, ideally, the strength of the conclusions. The authors included studies that go all the way back to the mid-1990s — a time when cannabis was illegal in the US, different in potency, and when there was no choice or control over strains or cannabinoid compositions, as there is now. One of the studies in the meta-analysis included “cannabis dependent inpatients” in a German psychiatric hospital in which 118 patients were being det...

ke MA Abstract Chronic cancer-related symptoms (stress, fatigue, pain, depression, insomnia) may be linked with sympathetic nervous system over-activation and autonomic imbalance. Decreased heart rate variability (HRV) is an indicator of autonomic dysregulation that is commonly observed among cancer survivors. HRV biofeedback (HRVB) training induces HRV coherence, which maximizes HRV and facilitates autonomic and cardiorespiratory homeostasis. This randomized, wait-list-controlled, pilot intervention trial tested the hypothesis that HRVB can improve HRV coherence and alleviate cancer-related symptoms. The interven...
