Comment from: MF, 65-74 Female (Patient) Published: July 03

My husband and I both have sleep apnea. We tried CPAP and BIPAP therapy and it worked well but after a few years they broke down and we could not get anyone to acknowledge or fix them so we have been without help for several years. It has taken quite a toll on both of us. I am so fatigued all the time that I am bedridden, so please use them if you have them. I stop breathing 80 times an hour and have had a few strokes.
