Sleep Apnea

Hi everyone,

Does anyone on here have Sleep Apnea along with suffering from Anxiety? I was diagnosed with sleep apnea about 6 weeks ago. I still have not received my CPAP machine to help open my airways and give me more oxygen. I wake up extremely tired sleepy every day. I'm sleepy all day at work. My heart constantly race in my sleep. I'm not sure if that's anxiety or from the sleep apnea,which causes me to either not be able to sleep or not able to stay asleep. Im afraid that I'm going to die in my sleep. Well anyway, this is taking its toll on me. Any advice???

At this time there is a real problem with finance and there is an ever lengthening list of people that require equipment for there conditions. Has the OT been to see you regarding this as yet ? and how long have you waited for this bit of kit. If you feel all is taking to long discuss with your GP and they may be able to shuggy them to arrange the machine



Hi I have both of these issues I was diagnose with sleep apnea about 10 years ago and I do know the tired feeling. You need to get that machine ASAP you will feel like a new person and you are correct is very dangerous to sleep without it apnea does cause your heart to race as well as anxiety I have both. My insurance was playing games and took a while to get approval my doctor helped by calling and saying I needed it. Right away. Just stay on top of them you will be fine. Best of luck
