CHEST SORENESS AFTER STOPPING CPAP
#1
After 2years of 99% compliance nightly using cpap, i went 5 consecutive nights without cpap to evaluate the difference in how i felt with and without cpap therapy. The only thing i noticed was a slight soreness in the center of my shest when roll over in bed or do some other activity that puts pressure on my chest. No soreness when i breathe.
I stopped cpap to see if bloated feeling from swallowing air would subside.
Couldn't tell any difference. I am back on cpap. Still have the chest soreness. Anyone experience the soreness or know if stopping cpap caused the soreness?

I had chest soreness, right in the center. Laying down, sitting up, walking-bypass and stents cured it. walked into the ER with an active heart attack happening. Very lucky. Not total pain, just enough so I said Hum this is different, perhaps it's not good. It was almost gone when I walked into the ER and I was told that if I had rolled over and gone to sleep, that would have been it for me. Zero history of this in the family.

Make sure you know what it is and get it checked out if needed. Chest pain is not something to ignore.

Yes, definitely get that chest pain checked out. CPAP therapy should cause very little pain and what does occur should fade quickly. Say you practice lifting 10 pounds per arm for strength. Adding in CPAP would be the equivalent of adding 3.2 ounces to the ten pound weight if your CPAP is set at 20 cm. Not gonna make your arms sore, I think.

The above is my opinion.  It is just possible that I may, occasionally, be mistaken.

I am neither a Doctor, nor any other kind of medical professional.

Everything put together sooner or later falls apart.

I have no pain in arms. Only time i have chest pain is when i sit up in bed or turn side to side in bed. No pain when taking deep breaths or walking on golf course for several hours. I have no congestion or cough. Possibly i have just strained something and nothing to do with cpap, just a coincidence the pain started while i was not using the cpap the 5 days
