    Default Sleep Apnea

    Anyone here with sleep apnea?

    I have self-diagnosed sleep apnea and it freaks my wife out in the middle of the night when I stop breathing and then suddenly gasp for air... I wake up and not even know what happened...

    Wrestling's Public Enemy member Johnny Grundge (real name Mike Durham) passed away this morning. The only details available at this time are that he was at a friend's house in Peachtree City, GA and was reportedly gasping for air and then rushed to the hospital. The early word based on the preliminary diagnosis from the Atlanta hospital was that his passing was said to have had to do with complications from sleep apnea. Grunge was one half of the Public Enemy tag team with Rocco Rock, aka Teddy Petty, who passed away in September of 2002 following a massive heart attack. Grunge was said to have never been the same since his passing. Public Enemy were first created in ECW and became subject to a bidding war between both WCW and WWF. The tag team was never successful in either WCW or WWF after they had left ECW. Grunge is believed to have been 39 years old. We would like to send out our condolences to the family and friends of Mike Durham during his hard time.

    I have it. Gotta sleep with the CPAP machine and that pretty much fixes it for me. Its a PIA but you adapt eventually. I can really tell the difference. W/O the mask(CPAP), after a couple of days I'm just dragging all the time.

    I'd never even heard of this condition before this past X-mas. Was staying at mom's for the week and her husband falls asleep (as he is apt to do) in the recliner. All of a sudden after a few minutes of sawing logs, he goes into very rapid breathing, not waking up.

    Then total silence. Then back to the logs....

    It's pretty disturbing to see someone being affected by this.

    The question for you is WHY you get tired. People with Sleep Apnea get tired thoughout the day because they can not get a good rest due to the lack of oxygen flow caused by a blocked or partially blocked air passage. It results in sometimes hundreds of "episodes" in which you actually stop breathing. The CPAP forces air in to keep the passage open. This will allow you to maintain the "Deep Sleep" we all need.

    You don't necessarily "wake up", so that you'd notice, but you do come out of the REM sleep or whatever, so no matter how long you're in bed, you're not getting proper rest.

    I had it, and would freak my wife out. When I talked to my Dr., he suggested I start by losing weight - so, I ultimately lost 25 lbs, use the breathe right strips on my nose, use the breathe right throat spray, and take an allergy/sinus pill when I go to bed to keep my sinuses clear. I also got a new bed, a memory foam deal, and a smaller memory foam pillow, to stay more comfortable.

    My wife says it stopped, but obviously I have no idea. I know I'm not snoring as much as I used to, which is big.

    Niether did I, but on the average did it over once per minute in my sleep study. I tend to fall asleep driving if I'm not rested, which is REALLY scary. Get the study done, its a PIA, but its important.

    I believe Reggie White died from a hear attack brought on by this, so it should be taken quite seriously!

    It's possible I could have this. Problem is that the sleep study wouldn't do me a damn bit of good. I rarely sleep well at all in a bed that's my own under even the most normal circumstances. Certainly don't see myself falling asleep with tubes and wires and machines, let alone a live audience. They would have to shoot me full of drugs to knock me out, and that certainly wouldn't produce the correct results.

    I'm also not good with sleeping with anything artifical attached to my body. Years ago, when I worked graveyard shift, I tried to use a blindfold and earplugs to help me sleep in the daytime. It didn't work, so I can't imagine something stapped to my nose and/or mouth would either.

    Whatever the cause of my insomnia is, the shit gets old pretty fast.
