Thanks Sierra, that has given me a lot to think about and I will certainly take your advice about CPAP and AHI. This has been very useful. Can I ask, is it normal to sleep for so long with sleep apnea. My GP didn't seem surprised but wondered what others thought. Thanks.
Hi there, I'm new to the forum. My GP thinks it is possible I have sleep apnea and I am due a test on 16th of January with results on 17th of January. I've had really poor sleep for about a year now. It has gradually got worse to the extent that I can sleep for about 17 hours a night/day and only then feel quite awake. If I sleep any less than that, I can end up falling back asleep on the couch. This week I've been so exhausted that I've taken sick time off of work. Has anyone else had to do that ? I wondered if this type of fatigue is normal.
Having read some of the posts on the forum, some people's problems don't seem to be over when they are diagnosed have CPAP for treatment.
Looking forward to hearing from. Thanks - Mike.
