Hey All.
I just got back from a hospital today. I was napping Sunday and my heart felt like it exploded. I got up and felt weird, but didnt go to the hospital till Monday. They took me by ambulance to Mt Carmel West in columbus. I had a bunch of tests and a ESP which is like a heart cath, but on the electrical side of it.
They think Im having severe sleep Apnea and my heart and breathing are stopping at night.
Anyway, 5 fays and Im home. Still feeling a little strange, but better. Still gotta go do the overnighter to get fitted for my breathing machine. Cya, HG

Glad to hear it wasn't a heart attack Hemmi. My dad had sleep apnea too, he used a sleep machine for years. He was the worst snorer i have ever heard! Sometimes it would sound like he would "skip" a snore, that was his heart stopping for a second. The air machines are like strapping a supercharger to your face while you sleep :thumbup: They are pretty quiet, have a water reservoir so you don't dry out and put out a good flow.

Are they (the Doctors) putting you on a "CPAP" machine or are they hooking you up to a oxygen saturation monitor for a few nights to record your levels?

Hope they figure it out soon so you can feel like yourself again.:thumbup:

H.G., stay healthy, man. Let us know what the sleep machine is like, I've been putting this type of thing off for awhile, just can't see how anyone could sleep hooked up to a machine. Dan
