It is concluded ADHD in childhood is associated with abnormal parasympathetic mechanisms involved in emotion regulation.

“there is a parasympathetic dominance during NREM.[3]”

Stage 1 – occurs mostly in the beginning of sleep, with slow eye movement. This state is sometimes referred to as relaxed wakefulness.[7] Alpha waves disappear and the theta wave appears. People aroused from this stage often believe that they have been fully awake. During the transition into stage-1 sleep, it is common to experience hypnic jerks.[8]

According to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine there is a wide range of potential causes, including anxiety, caffeine, stress and strenuous activities in the evening. However, most hypnic jerks occur essentially at random in healthy people.[5]

Maybe AD(H)D and RMD are linked to anxiety?

I do not know?

I wonder if continuous positive airway device helps lessen severity of anxiety?
