New here to this Commnity, but not WEBMD. I have Central Sleep Apnea as well as Obstructive Sleep Apnea. I use a CPAP unit with a little success. I am only able to obtain from 5-5 1/2 hours of sleep waking usually with chest and gasping for air. My Liters are set to 12 and I use a humidifier. On 6/4 I will under go Septo-Plasty and Turbino-plasty. Perhaps some sinus surgery as well. I'm hoping to have some success with the surgery.
Does anyone here have any experience with Central Sleep Apnea who can shed some light here? I also suffer from a form of a daytime Apnea. i do not breathe properly at all. Just now stopped breathing and went into a kind of transient stage. I hear what is going on around me but if I'm holding something in my hand, it drops out of my hand and spills. Not sure how else explain this. Has anyone else experienced this?View Thread
