I had a sleep study done and was told I had sleep apnea. I stop breathing 48 times per hour. I have been on apap for one year and I am still having problems. When using the machine I get up in the morning and I am bloated to the point of being bent over with abdominal pain, and during the day I will constantly yawn so hard I am gasping for breath. I am still exhausted. My wife says I am still snoring even with mask on. I have tried a chinstrap and nasal mask and full face mask. I took the machine back to the doctor and had it checked twice, and I purchased new mask still didn’t help. I am tired and sleepy the next day after using machine to the point of total exhaustion. I don’t have a problem sleeping with mask on… it just doesn’t help. Do you have any suggestions?


Tune in this Easter Sunday to hear all the Sleep Doctors discuss this and more.
