CPAP is an acronym for continuous positive airway pressure which is the gold standard treatment for obstructive sleep apnea. CPAP gets a bad rap IMHO. There aren’t many medical treatments with such a favorable benefit/risk ratio. As a neurologist, I’ve seen some first-hand magical results and firmly standby the preventative effects on cardiovascular and neurological health.
Here are some comments from CPAP users on the benefits they’ve experienced using it:
- No more getting up 4-5 times a night to pee. Turns out I didn’t actually NEED to go. I just woke up that many times, so I thought I must need to go.
- No more tossing and turning. Now I actually go to sleep on my left side and wake up more than 7 hours later STILL on my left side.
- Blood pressure has been normal for the first time in years.
- No more snoring
- I no longer wake up feeling like I had been in a fight all night & then run over by a bus.
- No more severe brain fog when waking up.
- No more crying because I felt soo bad & wondering how I would make it another day.
- No more feeling like I was going to die in my sleep.
- The deep exhaustion is gone.
- Wake up without a headache.
- Waking up feeling ready to get out of bed. Feeling much more energetic. It’s helped my depression tremendously. I’m just a happier person now.
- Much more energy during the daytime hours.
- beginning to think and dream big again because I finally have the energy for it.
- I’ve finally come out of my depression from no sleep. I’m starting to have motivation again
