    Sleep apnea

    My husband has been diagnosed wit both types of sleep apnea and the c pat machine his dr prescribed is not covered by r insurance. Now he's afraid to fall asleep cuz of lost of breath and how weird it makes him feel. He looses his breath at night and day when he tries to nap. It's weird how I can hear when he starts breathing a certain way seconds later is when he looses his breath. Any suggestions for what he can do to help with his breathing and sleep. Ty for taking the time out to read my post. Citas Martinez

    Yes I agree he should get the CPAP and follow the Doctor's advice. If affordability is the problem suggest you ask the doc what options you might have for financial assistance. Good luck.

    RE: Sleep apnea

    I have been using a CPAP machine for about 3 months now. I finally caved in to family and friends urging me to get tested. I wish I would have done this years ago. Fortunately my insurance did cover the costs but I was told that with a bit of research you can get slightly used or certified refurbished machines. Some organizations will even donate a machine if financial assistance is needed. I have no information to go on other than what I was told. Get a machine somehow you will not regret it.
