    Can sleep apnea be caused by TMS?

    Yes. Been under a lot of stress lately and started waking up gasping. As soon as I treated it like TMS, it stopped ... I don't believe in back pain or pain in general anymore so I am getting weirder and weirder symptoms to distract me, the older i get.

    That might not be sleep apnea then. It's only an issue if someone has a lot of reflux, obesity, or an airway obstruction and can be fixed by lifestyle changes. Apparently it's found in sleep studies.

    Can't remember which thread I was reading, but someone else mentioned that their sleep apnea improved by treating it as TMS. It's definitely something to consider if other causes have been ruled out/dealt with.
