Journal: Sleep Medicine. 2007 Mar 16; [E-publication ahead of print]

PMID: 17369087

Background: The hypothalamic neuropeptide hypocretin (orexin) modulates sleep-wake, feeding and endocrine functions. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)hypocretin-1 (Hcrt-1) concentrations are low in patients with narcolepsy-cataplexy, a sleep disorder characterized by hypersomnolence [extreme sleepiness] and rapid eye movement (REM) sleep abnormalities.

Methods: We determined CSF Hcrt-1 concentrations of patients with the Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS), a condition characterized by fatigue, insomnia, and in some cases daytime hypersomnolence. Conclusions: These findings suggest that abnormally low Hcrt-1 is not a likely cause of fatigue in FMS.
