My sleep disorder

I've had chronic insomnia all of my life! I also have sleep apnea and have been wearing the nasal pillows for 6 months. I just cannot get used to this contraption. In addition, I get chronic migraines and headaches and can't lose weight. (I'm aboout 10-15 pounds over). I was never told whether I have mild or severe apnea. There are nights where I put the nasal pillow mask on and am awake for hours. I sleep, on average 2-3 hours a night and sometimes I'm awake all night. Will talk to my doc tomorrow. Very depressing.

Re: Chronic Insomnia and not being able to lose weight.

I bought some more nasal pillows different from the brand I was using before and I keep pulling that the The Mask I might have to go off nasal pillows and go back to the one that covers the nose because I can't stand this one and I know I've had issues before with a mass not fitting right and not being able to sleep

did you talk to your doctor about not being able to lose weight?

Re: Chronic Insomnia and not being able to lose weight.

I'm beyond tired of trying to be in compliance with the nasal pillows for sleep apnea. I tried all the other masks etc and this seemed like the least offensive. I'm seeing my doc today. I don't know the severity of the apnea whether mild or severe etc. I'm ready to bunch the whole idea.
