This is going to sound like a dumb question, but how do you know if you have sleep apnoea? There’s been a couple of times I’ve woken up in the middle of the night feeling like I’m choking and unable to breathe…[/quote]
Well that definitely sounds like apnea lol do you know if you snore? Do you have someone in your house that could closely watch you sleep? Those things would give you an idea but your best bet would be to get a sleep study done. Most sleep doctors will have a little take home machine you hook up to yourself and then return the next day so they can read the results.
Also, i knew something was up for a while just because of how i felt the next day, never rested enough and just run down. Sleep apnea prevents you from getting into deep sleep and can really mess up just a bunch of things in our bodies. We all know how important sleep is in this game! I feel like a new person since fixing it. Some people have it worse than others. Mine was moderate. Let me know if i can answer anything else for ya.
It hasn’t happened for a while since I cut a lot of weight, but that’s still pretty worrying.
Hmmm. My old man has it and he’s not even particularly overweight; has to sleep with one of those machines and I doubt I’d ever be able to sleep with something like that on my face.
As far as I know I don’t snore badly. Everyone snores a little, don’t they? I’ll ask my girlfriend what she thinks.
I dont think everyone snores but fwiw when i used to snore people couldnt fall asleep lol. But now im silent. losi’g weight will also help because your airway will become larger. But i plan on packing on the mass so its not like its going to improve but thats why my mouth piece is adjustable. Plus i used to really grind my teeth at night and this mouth piece prevents that as well.
