I have terrible sleep apnea which causes severe exhaustion and cognitive fog making it impossible to work and study mathematical proofs. I think it's the central apneas more than obstructive. the ENT says my airway is open and ok. I just developed the disease with asthma after working in Indonesia. I keep showing mild hemolysis and was anemic as a child. I can't exhale after taking amycin for 6 weeks.
is there a cure? I'm going to try Diamox now with my asv machine and oxygen 5 liters/minute
Your attribution of exhaustion and “cognitive fog” to severe, sub-optimally treated sleep apnea is probably correct. Characterization of your apnea as obstructive and/or central and optimum therapy of it must be the first order of business.
The second must be a specific diagnosis of your hemolytic anemia, as it may be associated with a diminished oxygen carrying capacity that would be potentiated by apnea of any sort.
Amycin is a tetracycline and would not be expected to improve your exhalation, this problem likely to be asthma.
I really don't know what happened to my lungs and immune system in Indonesia that caused such bad OSA/CSA exhalation problems. maybe the pollution, so I started taking a lot of NAC and liver supplements and it helped the fog
but maybe years of allergy shots and xolair is my last hope
