It's now believed that apnea is responsible for weight gain, not the other way around and there are very many thin young women who have it (the majority of people with it have it for anatomical reasons). You should definitely push for a sleep study and see where it goes... you could be in a better place not long from now. PS - I'm one of those people above.

Oooohh, Rimalucy!!! That is a very good thought! I never even thought of sleep apnea!! Fuzzy, check it out!!



I've seen several very normal weight females who have been patients of mine have sleep apnea and use a CPAP machine at night while in the hospital. A co-worker, who is a normal weight female, has it and when she uses her CPAP machine she feels so much better!!!


Diagnosis in the US is done by a sleep study either at a sleep center or at home. I don't know of anyone who has done it at home and I think the results would be more accurate if you went to a sleep center.

Shame derives it's power from being unspeakable.
Shame corrodes the very part of us that believes we are capable of change.
Shame cannot survive being spoken. It can't survive empathy.
