I've already searched and read MANY posts on this very subject, however all of the posts that I've read seem to be years old. I was just curious if anyone else currently is having these same symptoms:
I've been on cpap for almost 2 months now. I just had my pressure adjusted from 7 up to 8 a few days ago. The first morning after the new pressure I was terribly dizzy, and felt like I was close to stumbling over. Research tells me that in fact cpap therapy could indeed be the catalyst for these vertigo like symptoms. I have never in my life had these symptoms before now. Moreover, I've also read where some have attributed cpap therapy with hearing loss. I run a recording studio part time, and I REALLY can't have any hearing loss!
I am 52, but have worked out and stayed in great shape for the last 30 or so years. Of course I have spoken to the medical supplier, who has never heard of such a thing. I have also spoken to my sleep docs nurse, who also has never heard of cpap causing these type of symptoms. She is going to forward my complaints to the sleep doc, and she's supposed to get back to me with his conclusion.
You can bet that he's simply going to tell me to go see an ENT, which I'm sure will not consider cpap as the cause. I feel like I should stop cpap therapy before I make matters worse. The problem is mainly the insurance. I still owe a boat load, due to my large detuctable, and if I stop now,.. I'll likely owe the FULL AMOUNT, which I really cannot afford.
Any thoughts on how I should proceed?
