I've been doing this a long time.
A year ago a coworker was diagnosed. He stopped breathing 105 times an hour.
Clearly he should have been diagnosed before. 
This thing we have affects our whole body. Simplifying, oxygen levels are way below what they should be. That affects everything.

A thought--before diagnosis I got up 4 or 5 times a night to go to the washroom. When my treatment works I may get up once. 

I've missed 1 night in over 30 years. I can't tell how I've slept.  But I can tell how I feel. I feel much better using my cpap machine and implementing suggestions that forum participants have made.

Good luck!

Thanks Dave.  I am reading up here and thinking of trying a full mask instead of a nasal mask.  Only getting up once about an hour after going to bed.  I've lost 50 lbs since my sleep test and life has changed a lot too.  That's why I'm thinking about it all again.  I'm getting there
