My Sleep Apnea Story
Last updated: May 2021
First off, finding out that I had sleep apnea was a really LIFE-CHANGING wake-up call. After my cardiac doctor told me I was suffering from cardiac AFib, she suggested I get a sleep study to see if the AFib was affecting my sleep, which it was.
After the overnight sleep study, they referred me to a sleep specialist for my mask fit. Since I am a mouth and nose breather, they gave me several different full face masks to try. At first, I was VERY appreciative of wearing the mask (claustrophobic). It was several nights later that things worked out. This may sound funny but now I like wearing the mask at night.
