Thank you for your reply. I have a CPAP. I haven’t seen a sleep apnea doctor for a year. I think I’m going to ask for a new doctor. I’ve used my machine faithfully for a couple months now. Previously, I’ve used it for months with no result.
I have had severe obstructive sleep apnea for over 20 years. It’s gotten especially worse in the last 3 or 4 years. I can easily fall asleep at a red light while driving. A couple weeks ago I had a fender bender because of it and many near misses. A year ago I was relieved of my duties at work because I was always tired and forgetful. I was passed up for a promotion. I’ve tried using many different CPAPs, masks, pressures, etc. but nothing works. Even when I use it faithfully, I’m still excessively tired during the day. The doctors I’ve seen have all said to keep using it, it’s the best treatment for this condition. I’m a 60-year-old female, 5′ and 150 pounds (I had bariatric surgery 6 months and lost 60 lbs). I was hoping the weight loss would help, but sadly, it has not. I’m desperate, I’d like to know if anyone else has this problem?
