Sleep apnea continues to be a risk for heart disease and many heart disease sufferers with sleep apnea are prescribed CPAP machines to aid their breathing while they sleep.
The problem is that it is very intrusive and uncomfortable form many to where a CPAP mask while sleeping (especially if you a "stomach sleeper" like me). CPAP can improve you sleep and heart disease symptoms but it only works if you wear it and the problems and discomfort often severely reduce compliance.
I would ask all sleep apnea sufferers and CPAP users to both tell their story and offer any tips or tricks to help community members faithfully use their CPAP devices so they may enjoy better health. Here's your chance help others and perhaps get some useful information in return.
