I slept about 4 hrs with the CPAP, and then was just too warm. Took it off and, after lying awake for about an hour, "slept" for 2 additional hours.

thanks, I have snored all my life. I need to lose weight yes, but, I probably will still snore. I am going to get a second opinion on my CPAP unit with a different doctor as my diabetic specialist recommended. I know that my snoring is my cause, I am worse than a buzz saw.
Have a good weekend

in many cases the reason for weight gain is SA....would it be better if you lost weight??....it might...but being heavy is not necessarily the cause of SA...it is the other way around...a sad misconception that many have of this diabolical disease..

Question? Does everyone with sleep apnea have a snoring problem. I was told that if I lost a lot of weight I wouldn't have apnea.

What are your opinions??
Thanks,

I know yu are right there, thanks, but I have been told to leave it off when my sinuses get really bad. I acutally have snored all my life. I had the CPAP years ago and couldn't adapt to it, always got respiratory probs with it. This time I am trying to adapt, it is costing a fortune everytime they change something. This is why I am going to a different doctor for a sleep study as per suggestion from my diabetic specialist.
These horrible nightmares have to stop and so does the feeling of being suffocated in the mask.

How long have you been on the cpap?

6 hours with cpap. 2 without. I don't know about anyone else but I have some terrible dreams with the cpap. More like nightmares. A lot of the time I seem to hyperventalate. Once I move and get settled I am going for a second opinion. There is surely something wrong here.

Tonight I am going without the mask.

Great for you, Big Poppa!
I fell asleep as soon as I hit the bed last night - didn't even turn out the light! Slept from midnight to 5 am, when I woke up with a slight sore throat (from snoring, I'm sure). Put on the CPAP and slept 2 more hours until the radio came on at 7.

Hi everyone, I have no noise from my CPAP extremely quiet. Of course paid a lot for it or should I say the government paid a portion, my insurance paid a portion and I paid the balance.
Last night didn't use the CPAP as I was stuffed up and slept 10 hours.

MEME, I have to agree about that "white noise." The sound shuts out other noise, and is soothing for me. My sister said the same thing when we shared a hotel room a while ago, and I worried that the machine noise might have bothered her.
I did well for me again last night:
