Thank you for your message, I attend the GP surgery and provided my evidence and completed the simple online test which all concluded I needed a referral which is great but I was told there is a long waiting list so I am not sure where…"
"Thank You Iain,I am seeing GP tomorrow with my evidence collected so far, hopefully they will be compliant and assist me going forward, I was looking to just purchase a machine and I agree I did see the humidifier machines which do look a lot…"

After many years of snoring and upsetting people I am finally attempting to try and get to the bottom of it! I have for the past 40 years endured the snoring and whilst I guess I seem unaffected by it physically I suffer mentally because of the constant worry of causing distress to others who might be in close proximity, I will never sleep on long flights or any place where it could affect people.
I have over the years investigated the problem and I have tried many products from spays, and basic devices but non have produced any results. I am now recording each night to compile some reports showing the extent of my snoring, I am visiting the doctors this week with the intention of getting permission to purchase a machine which I think and hope might finally provide a snore free night! I live in hope.

You don't need to start a new discussion as we're following this one fine :) It would be worth getting your GP to refer you to Oxford as the waiting list will no doubt be long due to this pandemic so at least he'll be…"
"Hi Kath, not used to the way the posting works on this forum . It feels as if I am collecting to much text. Should I start new topic? Have rung the clinic in Oxford and they said D has to be referred through the GP. I have found his Diagnosis from…"
"He really needs the attitude that if he is given a machine or a trial "This is going to work for came hell or high water!" though it is not easy getting started or used to a CPAP machine. Sometimes you just need to keep…"
"This came to a head a couple of weeks back where, even while just sat in front of my computer at home, I felt like I wasn't breathing properly, even with none of this going on - I was having to manually breathe. I got tested for covid that day…"
"With the last point in mind, because I never feel like I'm breathing "normally" with the mask on, I then end up taking over and "manually" trying to concentrate on my breathing with it on. This, of course, means that…"
"Note that this feeling of not breathing properly also happens even if I put the mask on for a bit during the day, just to try to get used to it. I simply do not ever feel like I'm taking in enough air when I breathe in, and therefore have to…"
