Sleep Apnoea

I have been to the hospital and tested for sleep apnoea, apparently people suffering with this wake up umpteen times a night and make noisy bedmates, anyone else suffer from this.

Yea me - for the past 18 years. However, it's not a problem. Once you get used to using the machine you get your energy back!

You happen to live with easy access to the best sleep apnea hospital at Wythenshawe. Beware though that if sleep apnea is diagnosed you stand to have your driving license suspended until you get the okay from the hospital that you are under treatment.

Good luck - and don't worry. It's all manageable.

I'm meeting far more people with this condition, and the effects vary a heck of a lot from mild to very severe; apparently it's sometimes diagnosed as a cause for other issues people have trouble with.
Perhaps sleep apnoea is becoming more widespread?

Hey Mancers Chris is right.

My mate had to sit in a comfy chair for 2 hours, and was forced to listen to classical music.
He had to stay awake, or lose his licence!

Thanks for the in put , it seems to be a lot better now that I rarely drink alcohol, lived with it for a loot of years so a few visits to the hospital won’t harm me.
A rousing chorus of Beethoven’s 9th would keep me awake Not Hermit. :0)
