I started using a cpap a year ago with fantastic results. I was really overweight and the change in how I felt was great so I started a weight loss program. Fast forward one year and I’ve lost around 80 lbs. With the weight loss however, now it seems my cpap doesn’t work as well. I’m finding myself waking up every couple hours again, not getting any good REM sleep, and just recently finding myself kneeling by the bed or on the floor again, which were 2 of my worst symptoms before treatment. I am very concerned by this. My mental and physical state before cpap was very difficult, not only for me but my family as well. I am reaching out to my primary physician and of course every one is telling me to have another study(which I am) but I would love to know if anyone else has had a significant weight loss change their success with cpap.
Thanks in advance, and how awesome is it to have a place to connect about this rarely discussed disorder.
