I think I have Central Sleep Apnea

I have OSA I have not use my machine in a long time because it just didn't help. I am going to go back to my doctor to see what I can do. I notice that sometimes when I am in stage one of sleep I am not breathing. I was wonding if this could be central sleep apnea, because I was thinking that OSA happens in the later stages of sleep.

It's hard to know exactly which stage you're in unless you undergo a sleep study. The only way to tell if you have a central vs. obstructive apnea is on a sleep study.

If you haven't used your CPAP in a while, or if your weight has changed significantly, then before you begin using your CPAP again, you should undergo another titration, as your pressure may have changed.
