I had late onset Granmal Seizures 40,s Did all of the tests and medications I had so many seizures they knew my mobile home layout I would stop breathing completely I finally got diagnosed with central sleep apnea. I got the bi-level machine and my quality of life sucks,taking provigil to get at least some time awake,I do have to take pain medication I know it doesn't help my sleep apnea. Before you tell me that's my problem it's not. This has been a long road for me, I am pretty broken up from car, and motorcycle accidents a hemorrhagic stroke, I can't take NSAIDS because of the blood thinners, and various other medical issues.
I am hoping there has been some advancements in treating this miserable curse, I would rather go more chemotherapy, than have CSA it's ruining my life. I tried every mask made and it made no difference,I am a mouth breather so my teeth are rotting away at a rate that I can't even keep up with, I am going to try another round of sleep studies in the hope there are better options than taking drugs to try and get 4-5 hours of somewhat alert time, before I have to take a nap.
