    My girlfriend says I'm snoring super loud and stopping breathing in my sleep. Sounds like classic sleep apnea. My question is has anyone here just went ahead and bought a CPAP machine off of Amazon or whatever instead of going thru their doctor? Reason I'm asking is pure laziness, no way I want to deal with the overnight sleep study.

    There really is a certain joy in racking up charge after charge to be billed to your insurance provider with CPAP items. I probably have at least $5k wrapped up in mine, probably more, and I've never paid a cent out of pocket.

    I am going through this right now. With insurance my out of pocket for a new machine will be less than what I could find otherwise.

    I did a home sleep study. I didn’t even know that was an option until the doc suggested it. They mail the equipment to your house and you sleep with it one night.

    Pretty easy.

    I'm interested in that one too. Been trying the CPAP out for about three weeks now after testing out with severe osa. Haven't had great results with the CPAP yet. Have had to go with the full face mask and can finally keep it on most of the night but really don't feel anymore rested than normal. And sleeping is a total chore with it on.

    Don't give up. My first six weeks or so were a nightmare, I slept worse and felt like a zombie during the day. But then I also switched to a full face mask and it still took a couple of weeks, but you do eventually get used to it and you really will feel better.

    But man, those first few weeks were horrible. I dreaded going to bed every night. Just hang in there, it WILL get better.

    Also, they sell machines at a fraction of the cost!! I would have seriously been better not even fucking with insurance and going straight there for everything!! Get the "dreamwear" mask with all sizes for 149- , so u don't have to mess with sizing if u don't know. It'll be the best 149- u ever spent on a mask , I promise you that

    The problem I have with those types of masks so far is they're really uncomfortable with my beard. I've gone to a mask that covers my whole face including the eyes, it's the best I've found so far. I can actually sleep with it on all night. I've only been at this for about a month so far though

    Oh true, never considered the beard with one

    However u have to do it just keep at it. My father had terrible sleep apnea for years and never addressed it. Now his heart is fucked up and he's been shocked back into rythm twice and he's on a bunch of heart meds forever. The meds fuck with him bad, if he doesn't take them at the exact same time daily he gets really out of it

    I see the avatar of he-man. I still have the original 1983 he-man and Skelator action figures and that big plastic castle gray skull in my closet.
