Fibromyalgia News Today reported on a study that determined the incidence of fibromyalgia in obstructive sleep apnea patients and the role played by CPAP as a therapeutic option.

The team found that treatment with CPAP resulted in an overall superior improvement in the functional symptoms of the disease compared to conventional therapy. Patients under CPAP treatment had a significantly decrease in the apnea hypopnea index (AHI), an improved 6-min walking test result, and a reduction in symptoms severity scale.
