Hi I’m Thomas and I am 40 years old I have been on Cpap since June 2013 and have been 100% compliant since day one. If you have a good sleep specialist and a good Dme and good support. I have to say this stuff works. I am getting better all the time.
The truth is the only way for cpap to work is to keep using it nightly every night. It also is good to talk to a sleep specialist and do what they say. It takes a sleep study and a follow up to get things started right. I have been on cpap for almost 5 years now started and diagnosed in June 2013 and getting better all the time. I just recently had a appointment and will be hopefully getting a different mask soon after having issues and leaks with my current one.
Are you sure you have sleep apnea? What mask do you use on your cpap? Some times a different mask will help. Also you need to be properly titrated and have the right settings for cpap to work 4 you.
There is no 100% cure for sleep apnea. The only thing you can do is keep using your cpap. And also if your overweight try to lose weight. I have OSA. I’ve been on cpap since June 2013. This year will be my 5th year on it. I am also hypothyroid.
I believe it’s called sleep apnea for a reason it happens when you sleep. As for during the day that would be something really serious.
HI and welcome to all the new people comming in. I think its great what there doing with this site and forums and info.
