Yes a little knowledge can be dangerous, as I discovered years ago when I was young and ended up having to give away the thick medical book that scared me silly, thinking I had all sorts wrong with me.  However, a little knowledge back then (even from my GP) might have diagnosed me years earlier with sleep apnoea Perhaps sleep apnoea wasn't even in the medical book, as it was a long time ago!

Hi Philip, Just joined the forum. Are you with Nevill Hall? They are fine, but seem to be more interested in the machine! General questionaire and that's it! Hence the importance of Kath's forum. Hope all well.
