Have any of you ever used a bi-pap machine to sleep at night? If so, what did you think?
My doctor thinks that I will benefit from using one. The only BIG problem is I can't stand anything that covers my face. I feel claustrophobic and like I am suffocating (even if I know im not.) I have never liked this feeling, so much so that I can't even have covers over my face. I don't know how to get over it.
My sats are fine when I am wearing my O2 at night but my dr lists off like 6 other things that would improve by using the bi-pap. My uncle has one because he has sleep apnea and he hates it and doesn't wear it.
They already brought in just the mask part so they could find one that might fit me (and so I could try it myself to see if I can get used to it) and as soon as they placed it on my face I start tearing up and getting upset.
I don't know I really need to hear some suggestions. Thanks.
