    I'm exploring the possibility of doing mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), because I've heard that it can help. What I don't understand, though, is how can something that oxidizes help when CFS/ME is a disease of oxidative stress? I'm sure I'm revealing my ignorance with this question, but if anyone understands it better than I do, please explain! Thanx!

    I was diagnosed with Obstructive sleep apnea. I brought the results to my CFIDS Dr, and the oxygen levels were low enough that he precribed oxygen of 2L/min (oxygen concentrator, not tanks, less work this way). I have been doing this for over 3 years now.

    Thank you, Emootje. ggingues, is what you're using a CPA machine or HBOT or something else? I don't know what an oxygen concentrator is. Thanks!

    I've just started HBOT for osteonecrosis in my jaw. Too early to tell its effects.
