I know this is an old post, but I see your comments and wonder about my condition. How did you know you had a silent stroke? Were there other symptoms? What other (if any) health conditions were you dealing with? I just got diagnosed with central apnea and my provider didn't seem to want to find out why. How is your health now?
I had been having troubled breathing/sleeping problems for some time and recently had a sleep study done. My AHI was 87 and the diagnosis was central sleep apnea. They tried CPAP during the study and it was ineffective. Now they want to try other devices but I don't have confidence in my provider. Anyway, I am an otherwise healthy 47 year old man but I'm not sure where to turn. Does anybody have any experience with this? Are there any experts to consult?
