In Feb. of 1998 I went to a Sleep Clinic for snoring. After going through there testing, they put me on a CPap Machine. It took me several month to get use to using this. In June of 1998 I had the first of 4 heart attacks in 8 months. With each on set of attacks, I always had pressure in my chest like my lungs were so blotted and putting pressure on my heart. 3 of these attacks came at night or early morning while using the machine. The doctors said that a graph for my triple bypass surgery in Sept. 1992 was causing the attacks by closing. I agree with them on that but I also feel that the CPap machine brough the attacks on also. I am currently 52 years old and I have stoped using the machine because I feel the machine has something to do with the onset. I would like your opinion.
