I was recently diagnosed with severe sleep apnea, a sleeping disorder that causes my airways to become blocked and I stop breathing at night. I just got back from a mask fitting for a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine that forces air through my nose acting almost like an internal splint for my airways. Now, I'm kinda new to this since I was diagnosed with sleep apnea less then a month ago, showed symptoms of it around April and started testing for it around September. I've read a few things on sleep apnea but I was wondering if anyone else on here have it. I know some weight lost might help reduce the severity of it, I really don't want to be using this thing forever.
