I used my CPAP for over a year before my AHI numbers came down to 4 or lower which is the target my sleep medicine doctor gave me for helping with my obstructive sleep apnea. Do you mind sharing what type of CPAP machine you are using and the AHI numbers you are having?
I have been using my CPAP (Resmed Airsense 10) for over a year. The frustrating part is my average event per hour is a ver low .4. Then a few days later I went to another sleep study my number was 7. I also tried an MSLT that day, and the Dr said it was invalid because of the 7 AHI. She doesn't bend an inch!
I wouldn't call my daytime sleeping as nap attacks – like I think of Narcolepsy. I always have time to find a bed. My sleepiness is not exactly normal either. It's a bad feeling that gets worse until I sleep. Even with a stimulant I only stay awake about 4 hours – I sleep right through stimulents. When I wake up it also sucks – being hard to get up, depressed and anxious for a while. Living your life in 4 hour segments is not easy, especially with many doctor appointments for me and my wife. She is being treated for breast cancer.
I'll take a look at your links.
