    Sleep apnea

    Just recently diagnosed with server sleep apnea 😞

    Has anyone else experienced this? Iím just now waiting to get my cpap.

    For those who used a cpap did it actually help? Also did you notice if it decreased your h&h levels?

    This. Quality of sleep is 1000% better. Took me about a month to get used to it though.

    Do you sleep on your back or your side or stomach?
    I think I need a cpap machine, but I am worried how I will be able to sleep comfortably with a damn device on your face.

    I was just fitted for a CPAP myself but man it is going to take some getting used to. I've never had any claustrophobic feelings before but putting a mask over my face to sleep freaks me out man!

    Which is weird because I've been through plenty of CBRN training with gas masks and never had an issue. But sleeping with something covering my mouth and nose hasn't been fun the last few nights. I'm hoping a different mask or time will improve things. I can't remember the last time I slept through a night without waking up time and time again for years now.

    1 episode had me wake up gasping / choking for air. That's when I finally went to the doc (after my wife pleaded with me).

    Yeah my wife has been really concerned, plus she works in the medical field and has been after me about getting a sleep study done. She has even recorded me in my sleep which kind of scared the shit out of to get it done.

    I sleep like a baby with CPAP, and that includes the face mask and lower jaw adjuster I use to further open my airway.

    Not discounting anybody's concerns because they are valid. But if you can get used to it, it's a game changer.

    Unfortunately for me I had to bail because I was maxing out every night. In fact it was forcing air into my stomach and I was waking up belching.
    It didn't work for me because my issue was much more severe, they want me to do a sleep study it's going to be several thousand dollars out of pocket
    I did okay with it for the first few weeks but then it made matters worse.
    A local friend was talking about some sort of contraption that a dentist invented, not sure if you heard of that but it's like a device that you put in your nose, you just wrap it around your head.
    I haven't seen it but I'm willing to try anything at this point because I'm sick of relying on prescription medication.

    vision,
    this sounds like the same thing Iím currently using. https://www.cpap.com/productpage/fis...SAAEgK0YPD_BwE

    itís a good setup if it works for you, it forces you to breathe through your nose, if you open your mouth it makes you feel like you canít breathe. I think my issue is my sinuses get plugged at night so I canít get the air I need. Good luck

    This is 100% the issue that I have, at night time my sinuses start acting up.
    I thought it was my air ducts, I had them cleaned out but that didn't help anything, my house is immaculate so I know it's not dust.
    It's been this way my entire adult life.
    The machine was literally maxing out on me forcing volumes of air down my throat. I would wake up with a bloated stomach and I would be belching.
    From all the information that I have gathered and the research I've read is that we should not be maxing out on these machines. When I had the machine in sync with the sleep clinic they were monitoring my rhythms. They would literally tell me I was at full capacity almost 99% of the time.
    I don't know what options there are for me at this point.
    My training and my diet has been completely tailored and altered, now that I have scaled things back a bit I don't have as many episodes with sleep apnea, but I did have a bad one the other night waking up gasping, and my wife thought I was vomiting in the bed.
