I was diagnosed with mild sleep apnea at the Stanford Sleep Center. I went back for a C Pap sleep study follow up, and they didn't prepare me at all for how intense wearing the machine was. It was a huge shock when they turned it on and that much air was forced into my nose. Pretty irresponsible if you ask me. I had a panic reaction (not normal for me either I don't have panic attacks) and it was really hard not to have a lot of anxiety from it after that. I couldn't sleep all night. So they got no data and it was useless not to mention really hard on me. And I haven't gone back because I don't think I'd sleep if i tried it again. I think it would take me using it at home over a period of time to get used to it, and they have no advice or help for this situation, they just tell me to come in for another multi-thousand dollar test which will be useless. Kind of a cookie-cutter CPAP factory if you ask me. So I'm wondering if anyone here, or you know has recovered from full CFS symptoms from a CPAP machine. PEM, high viral tiders, brain fog, muscle problems, almost completely bedridden unable to hardly speak.
