    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?

    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).

    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.

    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.

    Yeah scary Iím little worried about feeling claustrophobic. But willing to do it and understand may take some time to get use to it.

    Just had a sleep study done myself, waiting for cpap machine to be delivered. Went with full face mask because I have a deviated septum and my mouth tends to open during sleep.
    Keep us posted on how it goes. I hope I can get adjusted to wearing it.

    Life changer. My issue was O2 saturation, getting into low 70s. I wear the nose snorkle and for the first year had to train my mouth to close with that chin strap thing.
    I even use mine during naps. Never dip below 92 or so now.

    When you get the CPAP, use it! Every time I go in for my update with Resp Therapist, they look incredulous that the report says I use every day. Apparently people mostly donít. Weird.

    I was working at elevation of 6,500 feet one summer and my hematocrit jumped up to 54 and my endocrinologist said that is expected due to thinner air.
