Good Morning Folks,
I am overweight about 314lbs or around the 21st 12lb mark… depends what happens when i go to Slimming World on wednesday… but i was 25st a few years ago… I have a cpap machine, and use it on a regular basis… but haven’t been able to for the last 9months because of chest infections etc… Can i ask if anyone else who uses a cpap machine finds that if they have an infection that they cannot use the machine or is it just me?
My problem with breathing was diagnosed quite a few years back and then they found that incoming air doesn;t get past the diagphram so i have to be careful when exercising, and need to carry oxygen (we do this by using Sport-Ox kit small and discreet, but unfortunately not cheap)…
A little reminder to all who drive when you have Sleep apnea… especially those in the UK… You MUST report it to the DVLA that you have the condition, if you are getting treated for it then you can still drive, and you have to let your insurance company know also… cause if you have an accident and they find out it was caused by sleep problems then you are not insured and the police and the DVLA could prosecute you for Dangerous Driving…
Take care & Sleep well
