I spent a very tiring night at Papworth Hospital and came home with a new friend who I have named BOB. BOB is my new CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine who is to be my friend for the foreseeable future.
The consultant said He wasn't exactly sure what I was doing but I had had to have the machine turned up from number 5 to 14 in the night and I still stopped breathing (the other people only needed it turning to 7!) He asked me if I had restless legs and it appears I have and apparently needing the loo lots of time in the night is a symptom of sleep apnoea.
I have to go back to spend the night at Papworth with BOB in 6 weeks to be monitored again so I don't know what they'll do then.The consultant agreed it could be to do with Fibro as I can feel my throat collapsing in the day as well if it is I don't know that they can do anything! Why do I have to do strange things?
