I am surprised that i am still feeling pretty good, since stopping cpap therapy a week ago. i am waiting for supplies i need and didn't see any reason to continue until i get what i need so therapy will really work. i'm sure i will have to start again, eventually...no doubt that i have moderate sleep apnea. But i am wondering how long some people can go without it. Do some of you take breaks from it? (I'm sure i will have to occasionally) How long are you able to stop before needing to start up again? I appreciate all comments on this, as i don't have anyone else to ask these questions to. Thanks :~}

Beats me. Just discovered that my AHIs without CPAP came to 77 from the study I just had. It dropped big time when they put a CPAP on me in the middle of the test. I don't know how I lasted/functioned as long as I did with interruptions at that rate. Good Luck!

I think i must have the sleep apnea symptoms that show on the tests every night without the CPAP, but just a few months ago i had fatigue for a year that i am not experiencing now...like i've been rebooted! i just don't know what to think. As i said,though, i'm sure it will be back. I would much rather hear people's experience when stopping for a period of time than just read about it somewhere, so hopefully there will be more replies here. Thanks!
