I finally have data…. Beautiful data!!

And it gives me hope!!

I’ve been using a secondhand older S9 auto something that only records time of use and pressure and estimated AHI for the night.

I finally was able to get a BiPAP (air curve 10 V auto) with full logging, and I am extremely excited! for one, even after a couple nights I can tell the BiPAP is going to be a lot more comfortable for me, although I still have some aerophagia challenges.

And also, not only am I a nerd who loves data and figuring out how things work, much more importantly, it should also be extremely useful in tuning my treatment so I (hopefully) can finally get a good nights sleep, repeatably, after all this suffering. I’ve been aware of SDB for nearly a year now and treatments have only helped a little.

Actually makes me tear up a little bit.

Inspire device?

Does anyone here have the inspire device? I made a stupid decision after my diagnosis and didn’t follow up to get my CPAP and get it calibrated. We started our family shortly there after, insurance changed, I’ve been so busy, yada yada, but I’m still miserable and have regretted not seeking treatment. It’s been 6 years or so now. I take stimulants because of ADD and probable narcolepsy and that’s all that keeps me living somewhat normally. I know that I will likely not tolerate a CPAP as I have terrible anxiety and the thought of it alone freaks me out. I recently had a pop up ad for the inspire device and I’m interested in that possibility. Does anyone here have one?? Do you have to try a CPAP first before a doctor will consider that option? Does it help? Thanks!

Benefits of SA Treatments for mental health

Hello everyone.

I am in the process of getting tested for sleep apnea. I suffer from heavy depression, all the sleep apnea symptoms, anxiety and recently diagnosed adhd. I have both signs of adhd and sleep apnea since I was born (I think).

How did the SA treatment helped your adhd symptoms (even if not diagnosed and just adhd like) and depression symptoms, especially feeling out of your emotions ? I am absolutely not functional, never happy, feel miserable overall, and my emotions are inaccessible because I never feel « here ».

Thanks a lot for you help, I need it…

Any of you find you can no longer tolerate sleeping with your spouse?

…. or anyone else for that matter?

I don’t know what’s going on but I started eating plant based and lower carb and was feeling great as I lost weight.. my apnea improves (no CPAP) and then the two weeks before my period worsens .. I feel like I only enter stage 1-2 of sleeping at best and seem to overheat very easily.

Continued to lose weight and noticed now I sleep better .. maybe 60% better (I’m still overweight tho and not even halfway to my goal) but maybe 4-5 days before period my apnea worsens and my ability to regulate my body temp when hubby is in same bed doesn’t seem to work. I don’t get this at all.

I’ve been cleared of all other health issues btw.

I know my apnea is due to weight gain.. I got all the way up to 260s at just 5’4.. I’m down 20 so far and noticed my sleep seems a solid 60% better ..

What I don’t understand is when hubby sleeps Near me I get sweaty but otherwise I’m ok. No more night sweats for the most part.

I miss my husband and he misses spooning etc and this is such a sad arrangement but most of the time he sleeps with me the quality of my sleep is even worse .. idk why

I was not like this before.. always able to sleep near him.. no overheating.. woke up rested

Anyone dealt with this?

We just keep telling ourselves it’s temporary.. and we just need our sleep to get better so we’ll sleep separate if that’s needed for now
