I’m about 2 1/2 months into CPAP therapy and having good results as per Oscar. My AHI is usually under 1.0 and an average of 8 hours of sleep total. I do have fractured sleep, often waking in the middle of the night for an extended period of time (I don’t count that time in the 8 hours). I’m just starting a CBT-i protocol to help deal with that.
I’m wondering if anyone else has found continued sleepiness to be an issue and what has helped you.
What it’s not:
- low iron
- hormonal issues
- general illness which could be identified by bloodwork
- sleep hygiene
- lack of exercise
- still low blood oxygen? Haven’t tested yet.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts you might have.
