The CPap Machine: I have add GERD for so many years I can't remember. I need to lose weight. I know this. I have also been diagnosed with apnea. I got the machine, and vanity wouldn't allow me to use it correctly. Vanity is no good if you can't get restful sleep. I hope it works as good as it did for you. I have to take 80mg of Nexium daily. My ins only covers (1) daily so I have to try to get samples to cover the rest. I have an appt with my dr in late Sept. I am willing to try anything.
