So when ever the CAPT spends most of the day cleaning the house and then goes to bed, and I’m trying to relax and sleep from a stressful day of watching football, she sounds like a freight train. So they are sending her for a sleep study. I hear everyone who walks in the door comes out with a CPAP machine. What’s up with that?

The illness is not in itself over diagnosed. I guarantee that many people’s lives are improved by the use of a CPAP. It is a career ender for more than just pilots, for the most part Soldiers and Marines are non-deployable because of it. Who would gain anything by faking the symptoms and getting a physician to prescribe the system is a wonder.

Funny that you would bring that up about it being a career ender.. I have severe sleep apnea, over 21 years Army and I claimed my sleep apnea, they asked why I didn't say anything while I was in, I said because I didn't want to get kicked out, now that kicked me in the ass.. Although, I said something the month before I retired, and they said I was just saying something. Go figure, I just after 21 years, 2 deployments to Iraq (with burn pits) and I just happen to get it after getting out..seriously! I got denied, then appealed, got denied again, now it is with the civilian appeal.. I have been waiting since 2012. Seriously, I hate having sleep apnea, hate wearing the mask, I have tried all different types of masks, I have ones that are for the nose, they hurt, get night sweats so then its uncomfortable, I hear it at night so I have to have a fan on, so anyone that says is it legit, yes it is, and for the ones of us that have to use the CPAP, it sucks! Just wanted to put in my two cents. Thanks.
