My husband had a 1st time seizure , fell out of bed, I couldn't wake him and called 911. the ER doc put him on seizure med, and we are waiting for a neurologist to see him. I see he has sleep apnea, I have it and am treated for it. I was so scared, I gave him my extra machine set at 8 to see if it helps and no snoring!will get him in for sleep study soon, but I could not sleep worrying, so I took things into my own hands, Anyone else have a seizure from this ?

I agree that you are moving in the right direction by getting your husband set up for a sleep study. Please be careful about having him use a machine that may not have the right prescribed settings for him. Incorrect amounts of air pressure can sometimes cause other issues. Best wishes, and please let us know how the sleep study turns out, and all the best for both of you as you move ahead!
