Always enjoy the exchanges here on The Forum, but now have a problem patient and would like some assistance. She has severe sleep apnea / sleep disturbance / insomnia and suffers from chronic Achilles tendinosis, initially unilateral, now bilateral. Anyone aware of a connection?
Its either a big coincidence or its fibromyalgia (or a fibromyalgia related syndrome). Given the diverse clinical presentations of fibromyalgia and the need for time to pass before the 'pattern recognition' reaches a stage before the diagnosis can be made it may be too soon to reach that diagnosis. I more inclined to go with the coincidence idea unless other symptoms develop. See this thread on fibromyalgia.
