Does Your Sleep Apnea Affect Your Daytime Energy?

  1. Janet what machine do you use? I have had 2 F&P Icons and like them for the size and ease of changing settings. I am coming up next year for a new machine and would love to research one that would sync with my iPhone. My insurance gave me a Xmas present of a Fitbit Sense BP monitor pulse ox meter and a thermometer and one of the apps in the Fitbit tracks the hrs. of sleep. Nice gifts from a Medicare Advantage plan.

    1. NICE!! Wish my insurance company gave those out. Warmly, Lisa (Team Member)

  2. Since I've been using the CPAP I don't experience as much daytime drowsiness u less I didn't sleep.well the night 'before. I struggled more of taking a breath and was startled.before I started treatment do I'm not sure it's the same.

    1. sometimes I'll wake up in the middle of the night a few times but can fall back to sleep very quickly. I'm not sure if it's cause by the hose slipping or leakage but nothing like I've experience before being placed on CPAP machine. I used to grip the walls I fear.

    2. Oh, I see. Yes, a little leak will awaken me as well, but then I drift back off again, like you. I'm so glad you are doing better now! Best wishes, Tamara (community advocate)

    1. My memory has so many holes in it, (thanks Fibro, and numerous other contributors) that I have no idea what I posted! No worries. 🙂

  4. Sleep Apnea can affect my daytime energy when I have a short nights sleep or a restless one. I can get tired and doze during the day. that is usually right when looking at my usage.

    My C-Pap gives readings to my phone so that I can tell my usage hours, how many times I have adjusted my mask seal, how many events per hour and how many times the mask was on/off.
