Hi there fellow fibromites,
Well, I have been newly dx with moderate to severe sleep apnea. Who knew?? I have a dear friend who has been begging me to get tested and I finally did. She had told me a story that one of her professors told the class that he suffered with Fibro and that he also had sleep apnea. He stated that after he was placed on a cpap that his symptoms improved dramatically. So, my friend just kept on and on about me getting tested. I have been using my cpap for several weeks and I will say that my stamina seems to be improving. I'll keep everyone posted. We all know that I could just be having a good couple of days..
I almost didn't get tested because frankly I've spent so much mula being tested for this or that to only be told, sorry it's fibro related..really? It feels like my hips and shoulders are being pulled out of the sockets...my brain feels like it might implode at times, but sorry, we find NOTHING! I went to the pulmonary appt expecting the same thing...so, when he told me my o2 level was 82 while sleeping and it should be 96..I thought hmmm..is this why my brain is so foggy? No oxygen?
I know that we are all different...and there is no sure thing...but for me, the cpap is helping...and as it states in the 101 thread, keep moving, even though it hurts...a little movement is better than nothing...
I hope that everyone had a Happy New Year and I pray blessings and healing and prosperity for all of you for 2012!!!
