About a year and a half ago I started having seizures and was feeling very ill. After much testing Dr's discovered I have elevated red blood cells and severe mixed apnea up to 70 ahi's an hour. After trying Cpap and Bipap machines they finally put me on a Asv machine. My ahi dropped down to less the 1 ahi for the last two weeks. I still feel terrible ! My symptoms are massive brain fog, high anxiety, tough time breathing during the day, and just can't even function or get out of bed. Starting to think I'll never feel normal again and getting frustrated. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced the same things. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Getting your apnea events down to a great level is a start but it sounds like there are medical things complicating your well being beyond apnea. Talking this over with your primary care physician sounds like a way to start making headway on the issues that are making your life tough. I wish you the best of luck and keep in mind that most everyone goes through one or more tough medical situations in their life and you just have to remain positive and start looking for a solution with your doc helping and advising. Best of luck!

Hi blacklabel. I agree with wiredgeorge. It would be good to discuss how you are feeling with your physician. Once your sleep apnea is treated, it might be worth looking at other things to see if they might be contributing to the way you feel. Exploring ways to control anxiety and addressing your daytime breathing might be good places to start. Best wishes, and please let us know how you are doing!
