    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Greetings!!
    I have had about all the symptoms, testing that you all are talking about. Go to a good Sleep /Pulmonary Physician because sleep apnea can cause alot of these issues. Even mild sleep apnea needs treated. I was resistant because of the stagmia of toting along a machine everywhere I go and me being a Nurse thought Not me. But I was wrong. It will prevent future problems, like Heart failure, heart attacks, it helps in weight loss, and the big one is stroke, and it will save your life. So most insurance companies pay for both the study and the machine. If you have any more question email me.
