Sorry, I just have so many buzzing around in my mind, being newly diagnosed. I intend to stick around and re-pay, to any new members in the future, a little of the support I've had so far....
Is it usual to get diagnosed and eventually be given cpap without ever seeing a doctor? I saw my gp re the initial referral, sleep study undertaken (at home), saw my gp who had the diagnosis confirmed to her by the hospital doc (whoever he/she is!) and the next step is the 40-50 week wait
for my cpap machine which, I am told, will be explained/set, etc, by a nurse.
This is probably a daft question which I will regret asking! but does it actually matter 'why' you have OSA... I suppose what I am asking is, is cpap the 'cure all' (using the term loosely) for osa whatever the cause ? I don't snore at all, that much I do know.
