So I have a question that I forgot to ask my doctor last week.
I have chronic pain,TMJ, chronic fatigue (some form of narcolespy), terrible neck and back pain, daily headaches that can turn into migraines, etc.....
So I was thinking....Sometimes at the ER, they give me Oxygen while running tests, IV's and such. I love the clean air and sometimes it clears up my headaches.
My question is, do you think my insurance cover a oxygen tank? I would love to use it at night while I sleep. I don 't want one of those CPAP (Spelling?) devices. Just oxygen.
I am thinking it would help me sleep better and help with the headaches and migraines.
Have anyone tried this?
Do you know how I could convince my insurance company to pay for this? As I don't think I could afford to pay for it myself.
Is it possible to buy one?
When my grandfather was dying, he had one and a company delivered the tanks and picked up the empty ones. I also have a very sick friend with Lupus and other problems that actually has a machine. I don't know how the machine works, if it needs to be refilled or what. She wears her oxygen around the house.
Any ideas or advise would be appreciated!
