I have been noticing a trend on SleepyHead concerning Cheyne Stokes Respiration. I believe it was called Periodic Breathing on previous version of SleepyHead. I am seeing this three or four times a week.
My AHI is not high. Normally runs under 1.0, but last night was higher. No changes in Meds. or sleeping patterns.
Have been waking up feeling like I've been in a boxing match, whatever that feels like.
I've read that Cheyne Stokes may have something to do with heart problems. Had all that checked out last year and nothing unusual showed up. My doctor doesn't seem concerned. He only looks at AHI number.
Should I be concerned???
