I appreciate this article, as my mother has been strongly recommended to go on CPAP, but she is refusing. So here is my biggest question: how do you overcome claustrophobia if you are going on CPAP? This is a real problem for her.
Also, I have found by watching several other family members, that not only can CPAP help lower blood pressure, but it can also help reduce pain. My father in law has bad knees, hips and arthritis. While he did need some surgeries, once he started his CPAP, the pain was much less intense. It’s amazing what oxygen can do for the human body!
We were able to control my snoring when my wife bought me a nasal spray from the drugstore. Now we are able to sleep in the same room. Hope it helps others.
