C -Pap. Part 2

Postby chimneyman » Wed Aug 14, 2019 10:51 am

Posted on here awhile back about getting one. At the time I just thought it was a money racket I was getting 7-8 hours of sleep each night but I also really enjoyed my naps when I could take one. Now after getting used to it ( took about 2 week ) I haven’t even wanted a nap for the past month not to mention the wife is very happy I don’t snore anymore. Before I was ready for bed around 10 now I’m still feeling good and usually don’t go to bed til 11-12 get about 7 hours a night and feel great when I wake up and feel good all day I’m now a big fan of C- Paps. They really do work

Glad to see you are having success, it has been a life changer for me. 5 continuous hours of great quality sleep is better than 15 hours of poor quality sleep. I know firsthand.

For the past year I have been dealing with complications of A-Fib. Back in December I decided to have a heart ablation surgery to correct it. I learned a lot during the process. Was told that if I had been tested and treated for sleep apnea several years ago that it was a high percentage chance that I would not be having A-Fib issues. Surgeon wouldn't even do the ablation procedure until I was already using a CPAP. Come to find out , sleep apnea is one of the major causes of A-Fib. Do yourself a favor, even if you think it is a money racket or you don't think you suffer from it, have the sleep study done to confirm or deny. Take it from someone who regrets never having it done and thinking it was just a gimmick.

I'm following your path just two weeks behind, man, I hope I have the same results.

I picked up my cpap yesterday and last night was the first night with it on...hopefully I get used to it.

It takes a while but you will finally get settled in. It probably took me about 3 weeks before I didn't feel like I was smothering. Been using one for about 9 months and I don't pay it no attention now.

Been using one for years.
Besides getting married to my wife of almost 25 years, best decision I ever made.

I resemble this.

I'm curious as to the cost of the sleep study after insurance applies their discounts, etc?

My story with sleep apnea/C-Pap isnt so positive.
A pulmonary doc diagnosed me with sleep apnea about 10 years ago. I couldnt tolerate the C-Pap. I felt like i was suffocating and slept worse with it than without it. This went on for two years. Each visit the doc did not take my complaints seriously. He just lectured me on using it threatening me with heart disease and other complications if i didnt wear it.
Finally i went to a sleep medicine specialist who actually listened to me, took my concerns seriously, and retested me. He said that i was misdiagnosed and that i didnt have it and didnt need the C-Pap.
So...make sure you see a doc who knows what he’s doing and uses properly calibrated equipment.

My brother has one. Loves it. I’ve never felt the need for it. I sleep well, wake up fully rested and ready to start the day, no matter what that might bring.

I do have a Fitbit and a while back I was offered a slot in their sleep study. After months of wearing it to bed, logging my sleep, and them reviewing my sleep stuff from my Fitbit they said there were no episodes of any thing resembling sleep apnea.

Been on one for 6 years and it is one of the best things ever. After a buddy of mine died a few weeks back, from seizures directly related to sleep apnea, you won't never see me without it. I am still working on a way to carry it tent camping, not backpacking, during hunting season where no power is available.
