I have a question for you guys? I had pneumonia(sp?) last year and now have a hard time breathing to the point i have a rescue inhaler and I have to take spiriva once daily. I also have alot of discomfort and through the course of the day if I push myself to hard I actually run out of breath and have a very hard time catching my breathe. were talking ot of breathe to the point of passing out. I also have alot of pain on my right side where I had the pneomonia. I have been to my primary care atlest 5 times now and they reffered me to 2 different pulmanary specialist and they both jump right to doing the sleep study, does this make anysense to anyone here? I really dont want to do it because it doesnt make sense to me and they dont want ot bother explaining how they could be linked thanks

You may as well take the sleep study , if nothing else , it could eliminate a lot things for you .

At the end of the day , it gets dark .

If you want to cut the sleep study short, simply pretend you're sleeping and hold your breath over and over. They'll release you within the first hour of the sleep study and hand you a cpap machine on your way out

i was fortunate
my father and law had a machine he didn't use anymore and gave it to me. I just had to get my doctor to set it correctly. I had to buy my masks though.

even with insurance... it's cheaper to buy online than it would be to pay my insurance deductibles.

i was supposed to get one
after i had my test and they called me and said they were going to charge me , i never went down there.

what the hell good is insurance if they dont want to pay for anything.

what do they cost anyway?

In the last four months I have lost 44lbs in weight . On Friday night I did another sleep study at home , having not used cpap for the previous 8 days . I'm hoping that the results show that I no longer need it . My specialist is sceptical because I previously suffered 62 apneas per hour and by his estimations losing 1kg (2.2lbs) would result in a reduction of just one apnea per hour . My own view is that I feel just fine having not used the damned thing for 10 days , so I don't think that I need it any more . It seems that I no longer snore , so I'm keeping my fingers well crossed .

At the end of the day , it gets dark .

I saw my specialist at the hostipal today to get my results , and as I had hoped , I no longer have sleap apnea ! My mean blood oxygen saturation level was 95% while asleep , so no more CPAP for me .

At the end of the day , it gets dark .

CPAP
I was diagnosed Three and a half years ago. could not stay awake while driving, needed to Nap all the time.
At my sleep test I stopped breathing for a min and twenty eight seconds, 21 times in and hour.
Anyway I ware a full face mask, and have never slept better. Life changing experience.

Heili,

the only thing I can think of is when you had the pneumonia, it might have damaged the scilia in your lungs, and when you take in deep breaths, it might have caused scar tissue inside your lungs, making it harder, if not impossible, to take in a large amount of air. Did you ever get that checked with a chest xray or anything? And did they ever do a physical on you after the pneumonia, just to rule out anything? I just don't think you should be referred to the sleep study immediately if it's something to do with your lungs. I'd get a 2nd opinion!

Fat Burner
Hey Scott, A CPAP is not a fat burner. If I could loose weight by breathing, I would have evaporated along time ago.
