You’re correct. Less than 1% of the general population have severe central sleep apnea (yay to been part of the exclusive club). But my specialist said that it might be worth trying to lose weight to bring other health benefits to my life.

I was low-key praying that I was misdiagnosed with central and I had obstructive instead, but nope.

I have a myriad of problems with my respiratory system

  • Severe central sleep apnea (I even lost 6 stone, 80 lb for Americans and I still have severe central sleep apnea)
  • Deviated septum
  • Nasal polyps
  • Asthma
  • Loads of other symptoms because I’m a mouth breather, like inflamed gums etc.

I’m trying to at least get surgery for my deviated septum and nasal polyps to relieve some of the pressure surrounding my nasal passages. How did you find it after your surgery?
