On my last birthday I was able to say I felt healthier, less tired, and had more energy than I did on the birthday before it. That's a big deal.
My sleep doc provided the diagnosis and initial prescription. I get to see him every six months or so as needed for medical advice.
You all on apneaboard forum have advised me on how to pick out the right machine, how to talk to the DME, how to read and interpret the data, when (and how) to make changes, and how to identify and deal with all the common quirks associated with choosing and using the equipment effectively and comfortably. I can reach out to you all anytime 24/7 for practical help and non-medical advice.
I won't rehash my CPAP journey here. If you are interested here are some breadcrumbs on the path I followed ...
When did you start feeling the benefits?]
