I go for my First Consultation for a sleep study either at the sleep center or at home November the 29th at 10:30 am at the sleep center here in Beavercreek Ohio I still have my Papers to fill out to take with me to the study consult wish me Luck everyone that I don't have to wear a Mask but everyone is saying I may have sleep apnea because I do snore Loudly and sleep long hours and still wake up exhausted I will keep everyone posted after my Sleep study has taken place to determine if I have to wear a cpap mask at night or not I most likely will have to but for me to be 100 percent sure I will find out after the sleep study is done.

There are many kinds of masks, and you can select the one that is least intrusive and best suited to you and your sleep habits. It's is not anything to be afraid of. Quite frankly, I think it would be better if they did find sleep apnea because it is easily treated and you will feel so much better. Also, it would explain your symptoms without being something more serious. Treating sleep apnea makes things easier on your heart, lungs, and blood pressure too.

Several years ago, I wore a sleep mask. I preferred the full faced mask because I often slept with my mouth open and those nose-only masks were very irritating whenever I opened my mouth (basically air gushing out of my mouth).

I do wish you luck and hope everything turns out for the best. But don't worry about the outcome because it's nothing to be frightened of.

I am not scared of having a sleep study and thanks for the  Luck I will need it it may also explain the weight gain I have been having too for years I thought my meds were the cause of my weight gain but actually it may be the cause of sleep Apnea and not so much the medicine I am on currently. I hope I can be energized  and start exercising and lose some of the weight I have gained over time when I do and if I do get on  a c.p.a.p. mask and start breathing better just have to wait and see.

Yes, apnea can cause weight problems, heart problems, blood pressure problems, ... . Basically, a whole bunch of problems so if you get it treated you will be much healthier. PLUS, if you are able to lose a significant amount of weight in the future you may not even need CPAP. For sure, you will feel better.

@jt07good advice I hope I lose the much needed weight I need to lose if it is determined I have sleep apnea I know I have it just have to have it confirmed so I know for sure that's what's causing my extreme fatigue and weight gain what else could it be I do take antipsychotic medicine and a antidepressant which are also known causes of weight gain all psych drugs do which sucks big time for someone who cant afford to gain anymore weight I have been fat for years and maybe just maybe its not my meds but the sleep apnea causing the weight gain when I thought it could of been my abilify5mg that I take or the Lexapro but I was told abilify5mg causes a little weight gain

and yes it also depends on the person taking the medicine someone else could take the exact same meds as me and not have nay weight gain at all don't you hate those people who can take anything and eat anything and not gain any weight at all I am not as lucky and I envy those and hate those people who have no side effects at all and especially when it comes to psychotic medicine.

But it is what it is I am fat and I have to deal with it and keep my mind sane as well which is just as important and healthy as losing weight which I will start exercising by the way and losing weight after I have more energy on the cpap machine I just have to wait and see what my Sleep study says and if I need the machine I know I will I just have to have it confirmed what I already know and what people tell me about having sleep apnea I sleep 15 to 16 hours a night so I am not up very long before I am extremely tired and have to go to bed again and sleep another 15 to 16 hours and when I wake up I can still be tired way through out the day and its effecting my chores not getting done and effecting my exercise routine that I did start 6 months ago then I stopped after that

I need to stay motivated its hard to do though and say to myself this is for life and I have to make myself do it if I ever want to lose any weight diet pills wont get it plus some diet pills I cant take because of the medicine I am on I also like grapefruit juice And I read where its also dangerous to take especially when you're taking meds for anxiety depression and so forth.
