Hi, my sister had the problem of sleeep apnea. She had to do a few things to put herself into remission. 1st she had the sleep test and went on to a cpap, then had her throath operated on they removed her uvovla(the piece of flesh which hangs down in the middle of your throath) removed and then had to loose weight!!! It seems to be a desease which affects mostly overweight people. She lost about 50 pounds on weight watchers and looks, and feels great. She now does not have to even use the cpap. We are so proud of her and how she overcame her illness. I hope you will get the right doctors to help you and that you will be able to one day go into remission like her. May I suggest while you are looking for the help you need,you start a weight loosing program, I know it is hard to loose weight but it really is the 1st step to heal sleep apena. Good luck and may God help you deal with your illness and get your life back!!!
