Has anyone ever heard of apnea while awake? There are times when I may be sitting up watching TV or at work and all of a sudden I stop breathing and gasp for air, then start coughing.
I use a CPAP (at 9) at night for last 2 weeks and absolutely love it. Not only am I sleeping 3 1/2 hours longer each night, but not so tired everyday. During my sleep study, they said that my O2 levels, breathing, and pulse dropped dramatically 30 time during an hour. They then said that I completely stopped breathing 9 times in one hour.
Anything you have to offer on this would be appreciated it.
