I'm a 16 year old girl who has always been heavy as well as a wild sleeper. When I started to become very ill, a mirad of tests were/are being done. Blood tests, blood cultures, MRIs, a spinal tap, and a sleep study. The sleep study revealed that I had both central and obstrutive sleep apnea. Because I am heavy, my doctor will not even try an operation. One of my greatest fears of all time is sleeping with something on my head. The sleep study was like the test from hell because of everything attached from my head. Although I know that a CPAP machine may help some of my symptoms, I'm completly terrified of sleeping with a mask over my face. My doctor isn't even listening to my fears. I mean I am so terrified of my head being trapped during my sleep, I won't even wear a cap sleeping when I'm out camping. I'm so scared of the idea of sleeping with a mask on my face for the rest of my life.
