Every single male in my family has sleep apnea. Chances are I was going to have sleep apnea.
My girlfriend used to complain of my snoring and over the past year she has told me it has become increasingly worse with me choking and gasping for breath a lot.
I have always been tired and never really felt 100% myself for as long as I can remember and I'm only 25. Unfortunately, I can't afford a sleep study right now so I borrowed a family members cpap that was not being used. Res med airsense 10. I did some research and tinkered with it for a while before the first night.
These are my first 2 nights. Obviously it's helping. I was surprised I was able to adjust to the awkwardness of the mask so quickly because it seems a large majority of people have a difficult time with this. Is there anything else I can draw from this data that might help me dial in on my correct settings for long term therapy?
I do plan on getting a formal sleep study done when I am financially able to. As of right now though, I have no baseline numbers to go off of. My immediate family members have been diagnosed as severe.
