I've been diagnosed with mild sleep apnea. Supposedly they stuck that darn machine on the lowest setting. Have yet to use the machine they saddled me with. Have to be absolutely dead tired, to even try to use it. Then the VA gave me a newer one, saying the old one was out dated. The newer one adjusts pressure. Dont like it either. They said wear it for an hour before you go to sleep, and try to breathe normal. Eventually I might get there. I do know I sleep much better if I take a bit of nyquil, which helps the congestion from my allergies. So, I dont know. Supposedly this sleep apnea is hereditary, too
All I know is I'd love to tell the doc where to shove his machine.
