Apnea and Neuropathy
#1
I have severe apnea and am picking up CPAP tomorrow.  Does anyone know or has anyone had tingling/pins/needles in legs and or numbness in forehead and/or pain behind eyes.  All of these contribute to insomnia.
My oxygen level at rest was 80.
Anyone?

Hi Johnsy17 - Welcome

Seeing that you list your O2 level as 80, are you being provided any supplemental oxygen? To answer your question; No, I haven't experienced anything like your tingling/pain/numbness description.

Johnsy17,
Thats a pretty low oxygen level.  Are you under doctors care?  I've never experienced the pins and needles feeling you describe.

Do you know what Cpap you will be getting?  Touch base with us after when you receive it, and if you need help, just ask.

make sure you are getting a full automatic cpap or leave the machine and go back to the doctor and get another prescription for an automatic.
cpap treats the apnea that can cause low o2.
the tingling may be from low o2, you would need to speak with your doctor of it continues after treatment.

From machine or sleepyhead, set the min CPAP 1cm below median pressure. Or 2cm below 90/95%. max at 20cm for now. Forum will help you fine tune settings

Sounds like some form of nephropathy. I have a former colleague and contemporary who has idiopathic nephropathy.
idiopathic is med-speak for "I have no idea what the cause is."
