I have recently been diagnosed with Positional Sleep Apnea. Anyone familiar with this?
Hi, Susan! Thanks for your comment. I've been on CPAP for several weeks now and have gotten pretty used to it. I start off sleeping on my back, but after a few hours need to stop . That's when my mask has to come off. You absolutely can not sleep soundly on your side with CPAP. I have been able to determine my apnea is totally obstructive and not central. That means that I have other choices available to me when I have the time. Right now I'm taking care of my 85 year old mother, so I don't have time for surgery. I am considering dental appliance. Good luck!
People diagnosed with sleep apnea or think they have it.
