twin duelin' cpap's all the way. we have been inseperable bookends since we first met. when we first met we had 2 of everything and mostly same models so it was fitting that we wound up with identical cpap's. i was diagnosed before we met but got the cpap after we met. i was diagnosed because i told the doctor pretty much that i was sick and tired of being sick and tired. my wife showed no visible signs of apnea. she went in the cath lab for a look inside her heart where she was put under. after the procedure, the cardiologist suggested seeing a sleep doctor. she also has RLS so we don't know if he saw signs of apnea or RLS or both.
My husband rarely complained about my snoring before I was diagnosed with sleep apnea although I heard it was loud. I wouldn't know. I slept through it. He has been super about the entire process and he is still supportive.
My wife was the one who convinced me to get help, she is very supportive.
Time after time I would lay there listening to my wife not breathing and wondering if she would ever start again. Finally I convinced her to see someone about it. I went along for moral support, but as I sat there listening to the doctor questioning her i found myself mentally answering "yes" to virtually every question he asked. After he was finished with her I questioned him some about my responses and he suggested that I do a study as well to find out for certain. Result? We both had our study done the same night (wouldn't let us share a room though) and we got our his 'n hers S9's the same day.
Now the biggest problem we have is that sometime during the night, we are each blasting the other with exhaust air, lol.
