    Snoring / sleep apnea

    Does anyone suffer from this? I think I might suffer from sleep apnea. Last night I was kicked out of the bedroom for snoring too much. It even wakes me up its so loud, and I can barely breath. Anyone have tricks or tips for this?

    Yep, just start off on the couch. LOL, J/K

    I used to get it pretty bad when I was high dosing gear. I've seen many guys go through it as well.

    Is it just on Cycle?

    Kinda surprised... It's usually the bigger powerlifters that get crushed under their own weight with sleep apnea. You need a sleep study.

    Try talking to your doc about a CPAP

    x2x...

    just had my 3rd sleep study.



    you will need to see a sleep specialist before he will write you a script for the study. Than your insurance will pay, sometimes you may have to come up with 1-2k, i did for the 1st one. The 2nd two studies were covered 100%.

    You will need the sleep specialist to say its sleep apena. Otherwise it wont be covered at all

    really? a study?

    Kaiser has a little machine that collects data while you sleep. clips to your wrist and finger. you sleep with it on. the whole contraption looks like it would cost only a couple of hundred bucks.

    no need for a study

    Re: Snoring / sleep apnea

    Can't wait to have that medical octopus sucking my face all night. Seriously. I'm sick of not being able to sleep in the same room with my wife, waking up gasping for air, and getting 8 hours of sleep but feeling like I only got 3.

    Get a sleep study done and then they will probably prescribe a CPAP as roman said. Hopefully your insurance covers most or all of it, because while the mask isn't expensive, the machine that creates the pressurized air flow can cost upwards of a grand.

    Yea times, insurance usually covers a study, and will cover the Cpap machine, or most of it. That would be too expensive out of pocket. Sleep apnea is a major cause of heart disease

    :-0 Proof? That's scary as shit if it's true, but I'm having trouble connecting bad sleep/breathing habits with heart disease.

    so if you have restless leg syndrome how would this help?? how would it monitor REM??

    that device, from what i see in the pic, would only have 10-20% of what a study would monitor.

    Re: Snoring / sleep apnea

    I started snoring like crazy or so my fiance says lol. I'm on cycle and I'm sure it is the problem b/c it has never been this bad. Snoring strips worked for me but I can't say they will work for everyone. I guess it depends on the severity.

    I feel that my snoring comes from deep in my throat.

    Re: Snoring / sleep apnea

    In my early twenties, I was 280 pounds, and at least 30% BF. I was diagnosed with sleep apnea. I lost a whopping 80 pounds and got my BF down to 14%, went back in for a sleep study and guess what.....CURED!! During my tenure with apnea, I learned some things make it worse, life alcohol and sedatives.

    Re: Snoring / sleep apnea

    Sad, Here's link, I can pull some info from one of my books

    http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/heal...cs/sleepapnea/

    Untreated sleep apnea can:

    Increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, obesity, and diabetes
    Increase the risk of, or worsen, heart failure
    Make arrhythmias (ah-RITH-me-ahs), or irregular heartbeats, more likely
    Increase the chance of having work-related or driving accidents
    Sleep apnea is a chronic condition that requires long-term management. Lifestyle changes, mouthpieces, surgery, and breathing devices can successfully treat sleep apnea in many people.
