Hi again, Heather ... Thanks for the clarification. I don't think not sneezing is a problem. As you say, you probably don't need to. It doesn't seem to relate to ALS at all.

If you're not getting enough sleep and not taking your pain meds, this is undoubtedly affecting your body and mood. Lack of sleep can even affect your clarity of thought. And getting no pain relief must be an enormous strain.

Was it the sleep study clinic that told you to cut out all these meds so far in advance? When I had a sleep study done a couple of years ago, they told me to take all my normal meds, including an Ambien or other sleep aid if I normally took one, as they wanted to evaluate my normal sleeping patterns.

If there's time before your study, I'd double check with them about stopping your pain and sleep medications so far in advance.

Hang in there ... I hope your worries go away when you are able to resume your normal medications and get some rest.
