So my headache problem is helped 50% by
There seems to be a link now between my physical symptomps (headache, chest pain) and my cognitive functions, together with sleep deprivation. It is about the blood O2/CO2 level
1) Doctor's diagnosis & treatment
Asthma was found, and "Budesonide + formoterol fumarate dihydrate" (e.g. Symbicort) was prescribed
Not sure about COPD: I have quickly a shortness of breath while running, but in daily physical work I look like normal.
2) My CO2/O2 measurement
3) My sleep symptomps
4) My cognitive symptomps
5) What I do to improve my health
Hi there, sorry for a late response. I have an Spirometry and I will see how I can connect that with Sleepy head data
I do see that my headache is much increased if there is no water in my heated chamber. So one cause is found. Thanks everyone.
CO2 level where I live is normal, air quality index of 36, which is good.
I will do SleepyHead probably this week or next week. I am chaotic with everything now. Thanks
Hi there, I am using that Heated Humidifier
This is my machine and setting
Mask: Mirage™ FX Nasal CPAP Mask with Headgear
Humidifier: PR System One 50 Series Heated Humidifier
Setting: CPAP pressure 9 H2O, Machine = PR System One REMstar Pro CPAP Machine with C-Flex Plus
Thanks for your reply,
I gave up using Sleepy Head after 2-4 months studying it directly after the first months on CPAP, because I have not found anything strange. Probably my machine was not able to record more data to SleepyHead, or I was not able to read it correctly.
I sleep 7-8 hours per day.
After 2.5 year using CPAP I see my cognitive functionality only slightly improved, while all the rest of the symptoms still the same: easy irritation, bad memory, bad decision making, bad multi tasking, bad concentration.
What funny is that: quite sometimes I feel more fresh and much less headache if I fall asleep WITHOUT the CPAP (of course I would wake up after some minutes due to my normal AHI of 40).
About me: Age 40, AHI measured of 40 beginning 2016, started using CPAP (Philips Resmed System One) since March 2016 until now, on CPAP that is AHI 0.5. I can easily fall asleep on the bed within a minute, but waking up using CPAP I always have a headache, and this headache last the whole day.
Other health issues: Hepatitis B (non active), Asthma (mild, not on medicine).
WHAT WORST FOR ME IS: I AM EASILY ANGRY WITH MY KIDS AND WIFE, WHICH DAMAGES MY RELATIONSHIP AND MY FAMILY.
Please help me. I am living in the Netherlands and doctors here know shit about my problem. Since 2 years I am diagnosed by a Psychological Institute for my bad concentration and high irritation, but they have found nothing, except they think I might have an Autism that makes me angry if my kids and wife do something out of my expectation. And the hospital describing the CPAP to me stops wanting to see me after they see my AHI of 0.5.
