CA (cluster?) events not reducing
RE: CA (cluster?) events not reducing
I am not sure about this yet but I think stacking pillows & elevating my head make things better. but thats an uncomfortable position for me so I keep falling down during sleep. Still waiting for the caldera SCC.

"each CA to see how many are preceded by arousal breathing."
=> this seems to be true for most if not for all CA. attaching some close snapshots of these. what can I do to make this better? 
Also does restless leg syndrome has anything to do with this? I felt uncomfortable feelings and movements in my legs sometimes and thinking to get do Ferritin test.

does nasopharyngeal mass has anything to do with the flow limitation or HA, maybe OA?

RE: CA (cluster?) events not reducing
If you do better with your head elevated, you might try either a wedge pillow that goes under your mattress or blocks to raise the legs of your bed at the top end.

I don't have the medical knowledge to tell you whether your mass could be causing FLs or Hs (or OAs), but to my mind that certainly seems possible.

Were leg movements reported in your sleep study?

1st (2018) & 3rd (2022) showed PLM. 2nd test did not mention PLM. Attached are the reports.
