Those are the same symptoms I had when I was diagnosed with blood clots in legs and lungs, very dangerous, not something to take lightly. I had the clots in my lungs for 3 days that I know of and most likely the clots in my left leg were there at least 3 weeks prior. I thought there was just some sort of respiratory infection in my lungs, I was very wrong
Please see a doctor ASAP,
if they're blood clots and you wait for any other symptoms to show, it could be your last. At the very least it sounds like a Doctor would prescribe you some compression stockings for your legs and have you elevate them a couple times a day.
"is your apnea fully under control?"
"Do you sleep holding a single position because of the CPAP, and therefore do not have the regular motion that keeps your blood moving around as you sleep?"
"Do you have a machine that can give your doctor a data dump so that they know if you are fully covered".
you would think that with apnea I would fall asleep easily, but the reverse is true. I manage to fall asleep with the mask about 5 of 7 days a week and usually I'm lucky to get 6 hrs rest. The nights that I'm most tired, are the most difficult to keep the mask on.
The poor circulation through my lower extremities was caused by doing nothing about the apnea for aprox. 12 yrs. (the time between my first cpap in 92' till my I received my new one April 04')
They make a cpap machine that will monitor my sleeping too?, mine only keeps track of hrs. They never finished my sleep study last year, I had to tell the tech what my old cpap was set at. I found out real fast, that the old setting wasn't enough. So at this point I have no idea what is the ideal pressure for me. It's at 12 now and I had been thinking about getting it raised. I would really appreciate any info you have on that new type of cpap.
Thank you for your help and please take care of yourself too.
