I was sharing a tip, and thought maybe others could benefit, so I am putting it up on the bulletin board for general consumption--If you have brain stem lesions, and develop sleep problems of any sort, ask to see a sleep specialist. For some reason, and no one understands why, for many MS'ers that have lesions on the brain stem, we develop abnormal sleep disorders. Yes, you will discover that your neurologist knows nothing about sleep disorders, and you will discover that your sleep specialist knows nothing about MS---But, if you can make sure they have working phones (Big Smiles), and are willing to communicate with each other (a rarity in the medical field, often), you can let them know that sleep disorders often accompany an MS'er with Brain stem lesions. If you are in luck, they will investigate the matter further.
