sleep would unlikely be linked solely to a bone bump. One must asses the soft tissue structures near that region as well as the joints close to that region, and the ligments that hold the clavicle , the coracoid and the acromion in reaaltionship to each other. , as a start. The bone bump may ne a so called red herring, a finding that is not realted to the real issue or can indirectly linked.
