Sleep Apnea control helps my Multiple sclerosis
Since going into hospital fr rehab after a particularly bad infection and also being fitted with a CPAP air supply I a feeling a lot better. While I was in hospital the newspapers were full of the news that John Cleese was undergoing tests for sleep apnea. Well I didn't get my photo inn the paper like Cleese but I have got a great bit of kit that keeps me from disturbing my sleep (I was stopping breathing 27 times an hour)so little wonder I was always tired. I am now able to do daily exercise and although I am in the wheelchair all day now I actually feel almost human again.All of this is down to my MS nurse getting on the case and getting me sorted. The specialist nurses are under rated they do a fantastic job for us multiple sclerosis sufferers and their work keeps a lot of us sufferers out of hospital beds and are worth their weight in gold.
