pain with sleep apnea
I have just been diagnosed with sleep apnea and am going this Tuesday to get an EPAP machine. I don't know anything about it, but am willing to try it.
I am writing this because I have for over two years been suffering with pain in my breastbone, which goes up into my chest and at times down into my stomach. It is not related to my stomach or my heart. I have had all of these checked out by specialists. The sleep Dr. told me the other day that it could be the muscles that are joined to the ribcage, diaphragm and breastbone that are hurting me. He said it may improve with the new breathing machine. I was wondering if anyone else here has ever had this problem. Please let me know your thoughts on this and thank you very much.
