Yes, I do sleep on my side, either one. Have never been able to sleep on my back, so wonder why they insist these days that babies must. My kids were raised on their stomachs.
I keep getting different information on atrial fib. Keep hearing it's common, but despite all the heart attack symptoms we're warned about, I had never heard mention of atrial fibrillation until I had one. And then I got no information about it. Of course, I thought I was having a heart attack. Now I've learned a lot and willing to share, but there is so much conflicting opinion.
Hi i've join to try to find some information about using cpap which has stopped apnea's but i still feel extremly tired all of the time i have been taking tramadol and then changed to oxycontine for the last 4yrs which i think the problem is but my pain specialist keeps telling me its not the pain meds which i take for disc degenaration i have ask my gp for some medication to help with the tiredness he told me only the sleep clinic Doctor can perscribe medication for that but I'm having a nightmare trying to get an appointment to c him i was seeing him next week but they moved my appointment to march this has happened 4 times now any advice would be nice
Hi And thanks for the welcome note. Ive been aware of my sleep apnea problem for some time. At first it was mild with lots of snoring. Over time it got worse and my wife couldnt sleep in the same room. I was unsuccessful with the CPAP and contacted a dentist friend about making me an oral appliance. As a dentist myself that was the beginning of my interest in working with patients who share this challenge
Thanks for the info. I do have a transformer, but wonder if it's strong enough, if that makes any sense. Monday, will call the company. It took me a while to figure out what was going on. Also, appreciate the 'ask again' tip. I've usually stopped at the first denial.
Thanks for the welcome. Firstly, I am not a Medical Doctor, just a PhD in English Lit. I have recently been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea through very low oxygen levels while sleeping. I am waiting, not very patiently, for results from my over night "wire up", to get on with treatment. Probably CPAP plus oxygen, but the specialist will decide after these latest tests. I just want to get on with it, so that I may, perhaps, get a more restful sleep, and feel like living again. I will keep the group informed of my progress.
Thanks again for the welcome!!
I had to do some digging based on the limited info I have from your profile here but the Rhondda address seemed to have worked. Assuming you are the gentleman with telephone ending 001 then my colleague has contacted you Thursday 11:14am by email to request the additional info required. Please double check your junk folder just to be sure. Regards, James
