Sleep Apnea questions
I had the overnight sleep apnea test at the hospital. I came in just under the range that they automatically set you up with the breathing apparatus. The doctor, however, said I should use this machine. Now the pharmacy is making sure that I am covered for it under my health insurance plan.
Last night, again, I woke up trying to gasp for a breath. I noticed after this (and other) episodes that I seemed to have a lot of phlegm.
If you have sleep apnea, do you also get phlegm after you stop breathing?
Also, has the breathing apparatus helped you in the long run? At the hospital, they said I slept better when I was using the machine but the thought of hooking up to it every night is unnerving.
