Diagnosed with sever sleep apnea that went untreated for 18 months (maybe more?). Experienced a downward spiral of mental and physical abilities. C-pap began last February. Many nights and mornings awoke with the appliance detached from face. In and about April lost everything. People said I was falling and could not talk. Diagnosed with a "inflamation of the brain" by doctors. All test negative for brain damage except for high "protien level in spinal fluid". Current symptons include tinnitus (beginning with collaps in April), insomnia (treatment = amitriptyline hcl 50 mg nightly), low thyroid (synthroid 75mg nightly) & some mental impairment (slow memory?). Now on temp. disability from job. Any suggestions out there?
