Can sleep apnea in your childhood affect how well you sleep later on in life?

November 29th, 2012

I had sleep apnea when I was younger due to very large tonsils and adenoids. They were taken out when I was four years old. I am now 18 and have been having difficulties falling and staying asleep for around four or five years now. I was wondering if there is any connection.

Some patients have problems even if they had surgery. For example, if you had big adenoids, then surgery can be an important step to do, avoiding complications with a CPAP machine for the rest of your life. However, did you know that some sleep apnea patients had the same difficulties in sleep even they’ve had removed the tonsils and adenoids?

One of the reasons is that they have another cause for their sleep disorder, like fat around their neck, a big tongue that can obstruct the airways in sleep, or central sleep apnea.

What else can a sleep apnea test tell you about your health?

November 22nd, 2012

Went to a sleep apnea test. What else can Physicians tell about such a test. I was hocked up to about 36 different electro cables.
Thanks. I looked very funny after being hocked up to all these electrodes.
Thanks. I looked very funny after being hocked up to all these electrodes.

A polysonogram or sleep study can identify about 80 plus different sleep disoders. Sleep apnea is by far the most common. It can tell if you have any siezures or brain wave abnormalities from the EEG They can tell if you have any heart rythm abnormalities from the EKG. The leg wires are EMG and they can tell if you have restless leg syndrome. The wire on your finger can tell what your oxygen level is all night. Other wires include the snore microphone, flow sensor (in the nose), the face electrodes are generally EMG wires. They can tell when you are in REM. The belts around the chest are to show respiratory and abdominal effort. It helps to determine if you have central sleep apnea vs. obstructive sleep apnea.

Hope this helps

Central or obstructive sleep apnea?

November 8th, 2012

Recently, I’ve noticed that I cannot breathe at night. I was just wondering if someone would be able to distinguish if it was central or obstructive. First off, I do regularly experience sleep paralysis, however this newer sensation of not breathing is unlike that of having slight difficulty breathing with sleep paralysis. There is usually some sort of a weird sensation in my stomach area and my guess is that my diaphragm stops functioning normally. The first time I noticed this, I may have been in the midst of a sleep paralysis episode so there was a tingly sensation traveling up my spine and then pain at the base of my neck. Normally I do not experience pain with my sleep paralysis episodes, so I found this a bit odd. Also, this may seem ridiculous, but I would like to mention that my sleep paralysis is usually accompanied by hallucinations, sometimes of limbs flailing around (kind of like having a seizure) so this "not breathing" may also just be my imagination.

I am 19 years old and weigh ~120lbs (I am 5’4”), but I’ve been steadily gaining weight for the past 5 years, so weight may or may not be a problem. I try not to sleep on my back to minimize the frequency of sleep paralysis episodes (the last two times I experienced what I suspect is sleep apnea, I was on my side, so I am led to believe that sleep paralysis is irrelevant). The softness/hardness of mattresses do not seem to affect whether or not I stop breathing (as a college student, I regularly switch between sleeping at home and on campus). Also, I am very out of touch with myself so I cannot say whether I am stressed or not and therefore how stress may be affecting me (some people find this odd, but this is how I’ve been all my life). My dad has been diagnosed with sleep apnea, but we do not talk very much so I do not know a lot about it.

Lastly, I may consider discussing this with a doctor, but spontaneous death while sleeping due to sleep apnea is somewhat infrequent. I am already becoming accustomed to this so I doubt that I will mention it to anyone who will recommend that I use a CAPA machine or take medication for my sleep paralysis.

You will not be able to find out if you have CSA or OSA without either a sleep Sudy or have someone actually watch your breathing. If you do not have a neurological disorder, I doubt you have Central Sleep Apnea.

You can start a journal to get back in touch withyourselfl and personal observations. Include the following 1.snoringg, 2. apnea events that awaken you, 3. morning headaches, 4. frequent nighttime urination, 4. excessive daytime sleepiness, 6. falling sleep at inappropriate places (cars, class, social setting), and 5. if you have family history of sleep disorders.

At some time this may be valuable to take to your doctor forassessmentt.
