I came home by 4 instead of 6:30 pm tired and still had headache. Last night I decided to sleep using the CPAP as my thoughts about my symptoms yesterday morning seemed related to breathing problems during sleep. My doc said I didn't qualify to require CPAP anymore but that I could still use it on the low setting it is on. Well indigestion, headache upon waking, numb cold aching hands and feet and tension all over body made me decide to use it last night. I feel 100% better today. I have some mild sinus issues and cough with breathing issues, and this may have caused increased Apnea incidents during the night. It may have had nothing to do with the weather actually, then again.... All I know is I fell 100% better. I hit the floor going most mornings and I never got past drag yesterday. Looking forward to a better day. With normal aches and pains of a 56 year old body who used to carry 242 lbs and is now 122, that has a host of past injuries that are still present but much improved with weight loss, better health, and who runs slowly. I actually feel like I could run today. No way yesterday. By the way I only had about 4,000 steps yesterday. It's Wednesday and a hard day to get all my steps in but I am wearing walking shoes so I can take a walk if the day permits.
Thank you for the well wishes, I am feeling much improved today, its almost unbelievable how much better. Apnea is a really big deal and so is poor sleep. I hope you all have a great day!
