Redeemed!!!!!
Two sleep studies and two titration studies later and finally I am in recovery.

Thank goodness. I finally went to a renowned university sleep study center. They found out that the Bipap I was on for 6 months was worthless. My AHI were between 35-67.

Now after 2 weeks on my new ASV  I am down to AHI of 0-.5.

Central apneas were killing me.

I believe that I have been in sleep apnea for at least twenty years or longer.

I first noticed that my sleep was crap after 17 months of Vietnam. Thought it was PTSD. Now I suspect Agent Orange. Who knows? 

Now I am sleeping through the night and not getting up 3-4 times to go to the restroom.

It is a wonderful life. Thank you Jesus.

Thank you for your service.

Sadly, a lot of servicemembers have been exposed to toxins and diseases thst cause terrible health issues. And some of those lead to sleep disorders. :-/

I'm glad you've finally gotten your sleep apnea figured out and it's finally being properly treated!
