One thought on “From Fatigued to Fabulous! A Special Interview with Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum

  1. I enjoyed hearing Dr Tietelbaum’s point of view regarding the cause and treatment of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. As a neurologist, I believe that they are both caused by OSA and the first line treatment is an APAP machine. It is well known that the response to PAP is varied, ie, some patients respond by an improvement in there symptoms and others do not.

    The assumption is that it you do not respond favorably to PAP treatment within the first few days or weeks, then the cause couldn’t possibly be OSA because if it were, the treatment should have gotten rid of the symptoms, right? Wrong! This is where the non neuro educated specialist can miss the boat, so to speak.

    In my opinion, the cause of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is an accumulation of white matter or axonal strokes involving critical areas of the brain, (ie, hypothalamus, prefrontal and sensory cortex, for example) created by long standing, repeated obstructions (hypoxemia and other complications). These areas of brain damage may or may not recover with PAP treatment right away. The speed of stroke recovery varies considerably (from none to complete), depending on many factors. PAP must be continued and where necessary adjunctive therapies added. In time, with brain recovery, the adjunctive therapies can be selectively withdrawn. (See my recently published book, “Deadly Sleep” for more details).
