Re: Costochondritis and cpap solutions?

I would first get a second opinion from another ENT or neurologist before experimenting more.

Re: Yerba Mate tea

No, but I'd wait a bit longer to see if the tea is responsible or just coincidental... Experiment a bit.

Re: Last Night Was First Night

EVEN if you're doing something 'wrong' it doesn't have to be forever and clearly won't kill you while you experiment - so relax a bit which might help overall.

Re: Last Night Was First Night

Agree with bumping the 4 to 6 (seems to be the lowest # anyone can breathe at) but changing 20 to 15 may not be helpful (tho' not 'un'helpful either).

Re: More tired than ever

Just wondering what your MD said was his reason for stopping the Cpap specifically? Though I may be missing the obvious as I'm very far from being expert on it.

Re: Autism and new to CPAP

Stop trying to get 'doctors' answers from the office staff. Make a new appt to see the MD and bring your Q's written down to ask him/her what you want to know. If he/she doesn't have satisfactory answers get a new MD.

Re: Autism and new to CPAP

One thing - how comfortable do you feel talking about all this with your family MD? Do you get satisfactory answers? Have you thought about talking to another MD who might have more immediate and/or specific answers?

Re: Autism and new to CPAP

Good for you for trying hard to overcome or at least accommodate the autism... would not want to have to manage that, let alone so well.

If it matters, or helps, many do start out not feeling good with the mask, etc, but it supposedly does improve over time... Good luck!

Re: Neck pain/stiffness

To DanJFoley - get another MD with a proper diagnosis and suggestions for therapy... it doesn't sound like yours has given much help at all.

Re: CPAP Data Help

Listen to Pugsy - people often assume everything is about sleep, but it may not be and other things may need to be looked at.
