Sleep Apnea, UARS. I bend my knees at night for some reason.
I am 47yo male, 6'2" 220lbs. I have history of DVT and PE and AFIB. Use a ResMed AirCurve 10 bipap and ResMed Dental appliance to move jaw forward. Even though my AHI is well controlled under 1.
I sometimes raise my knees up in the air like I'm sitting in a chair. They stay like that for hours sometimes. My bipap machine will show no obstructions but raises pressure during this time.
I'm thinking I may still have upper airway resistance, UARS and making heavier effort to breathe. But I can't tell. I started to use a Webcam to record myself. It showed me raising my knees last night. My machine showed it raised pressure. Sometimes I get night sweats when this happens.
Does anyone know why I would raise knees up in air?
Could I have UARS still on bipap therapy?
Or is this medicine related?
I take Multaq, Bystolic and Xarelto. I'm wondering if Multaq is causing me to breathe heavier while laying down. My cardiologist says it is not likely but their is a warning on the label saying to let cardiologist know if you have issues breathing at night laying down.
