People have weird ideas about apnea and CPAP…. You don’t need to be huge or lazy or …pretty much fit ANY category to have apnea.
I first heard about it from a friend who was diagnosed about 15 years ago…. he’s about 6’2" and maybe 160 pounds…and still carries heavy stuff and does home repairs by himself, in his 60’s.
His wife heard him stop breathing in between his room-shaking snores. He got the first CPAP machine I ever saw.
It was as big as a car battery and made noise all night….Mine is the size of a small lunchbox and almost silent.It’s a bother at first…. but when you discover what it can do for you…. wow.
I recommend that anyone who’s “accused” of snoring (and it’s not a crime!) be tested. It’s worth it.That’s why I talk about it publicly.
