Sleep apnea and driving? – iDunmed

Hi everyone. I’m newly diagnosed with sleep apnea, quite severe apparently (109 AHI) and I’ve seen a respiratory therapist who thought my numbers were crazy (I’m 24) but otherwise said nothing about it. I started cpap last night and feel ok but nothing hugely different. I went to a doctor for an unrelated problem today and as she was pulling up my chart she saw the sleep study and told me she legally can’t let me drive even though I reported that during the day unless I lie down I have no issues with suddenly falling asleep. I’m listening to her advice but I do drive for a living right now. Does anyone have issues with sleep apnea and their driving, and did cpap therapy help you get back on the road?
