Sleep apnea, anyone else got it?
I have had it for years but was diagnosed 2 yrs ago and sleep w/ a cpap machine but I'm still tired as **** all of the time anyone else with experience with this and suggestions on getting sleep?
Got another sleep study next week but I don't think I'll learn much more. I have major problems with staying awake if I sit or drive for long periods of time without activity.

I've been meaning to see the Dr about my sleep, I toss and turn and wake up many times during the night.

well it sucks my last study showed I woke up 45 times an hour. Meaning I really never sleep. And napping doesn't help cause you just do the same thing.
You don't notice it unless you are awake for more than 30 seconds. So I/we never know it. Along with causing fatigue it is hard on the heart and the brain because of the oxygen deprivation.

also over the counter anti snore crap works sometimes.. get the kind that you have to snort in your nose. its better imo.

I have talked w/the doc re:surgery he says it's 50% successful. Man I'd cut it out myself if I knew for sure it would work!lol I am still using that machine and have a follow up study to see if they can tweek it a bit.
I wonder why some people have it ans some don't? I understand how it happens but why?
