I haven't seen any studies but think it concerns everyone, and is lack of sleep is a factor....oh dear. My mum had it also.

I do not believe they are related. I can't say that with 100 percent assurance, but when I've read about it in the past, I have not seen lack of sleep as a potential cause/trigger. I've seen dietary links, genes that are involved, and some other things.

I haven't read it, but I did go find this link that you may want to read to find out more about it.
