    CPAP AND LIGHTHEADED SPELLS

Recently lost 50lbs now I have noticed that I have severe gas in the morning which is no big deal but now I’ve noticed that I get lightheaded spells, last about 5 mins. I feel faint about once a day.

    Sleep Paralysis

    what is sleep paralysis? Sleep paralysis is a temporary inability to move or talk that takes place when you're waking up or falling asleep.

    Insomnia caused by anxiety

    I have suffered from anxiety since I was in high school. My anxiety go to a point where I was afraid to fall asleep and slowly started to get less sleep over time.

It helped some but left me with large amounts of fatigue in the mornings not being able to focus with my work. This year has been different....

    This helped my sleep so much

    I just wanted to share this post with this community. I have always had so much trouble falling asleep. Up for at least 3 hrs after getting in bed.

    Unrefreshing sleep and tired all day long

    I'm 36 years old. Not a typical sleep apnea candidate. 5'8, 155 pounds and quite in shape/muscular. Only a 15" neck size. Possibly a larger tongue than normal. Since I was in my early teenage years (possibly even before), I've felt exhausted every day no matter how much I slept. Later elementary school and high school was awful for me. I have days when I feel so tired that it seems hard to focus enough to say my words without slurring them or speaking with a lisp. I have never been....

    Complicated dreams keeping me from feeling rested.

    Hey everyone, This is sort of new to me but wanted to see if anyone has heard of this before. I generally have no problem falling asleep although I have restless nights every now and then. My brain is generally overactive and I struggled with an anxiety and panic disorder but that doesn't usually give me issues with falling asleep. However, lately even though I do fall asleep quickly, my dreams are long and complicated and I can feel that they are making my brain work full force to solve the....
