I was diagnosed with sleep apnea late last year, I have a cpap machine but am having difficulty using it. I constantly get a blocked nose thus proving difficult to breath using cpap machine so I spoke to sleep clinic nurse and now have a new attachment which is the humidifier section on the cpap machine. When I go to bed it is on the ramping setting as I go to sleep fast, but often I get panicky too when I use my machine, it has been suggested I try using the machine through the day which I do find has been helping. My problem is I cant breath properly or long through my nose when I sleep and I usually sleep with mouth open, hence I snore lol. I am on anti-depressants as I feel my doctors arrent supportive enough, they keep saying all my health problems will go away once I use the cpap machine but I'm not convinced as I have been in pain for years and get recurring chest infections. Symptoms are like ME or Fibromyalgia can anyone tell me if this is a known fact that these illnesses are linked? As my doctor doesnt think my problems stem from one cause.
