It’s been 6 months since I started CPAP treatment, and although the CPAP has been going great (most days my AHI is under 3) everything else seems to have gotten worse. I’ve had anxiety since my teens, and growing up I was very shy. My anxiety, slight depression, and stress has been going up and up over the last 6 months. My anxiety medicine has been increased (and not doing much for me), I’ve started seeing an allergist, psychiatrist, and a psychotherapist. Work is suffering more now than ever before (probably my worst 6 months since I started working). Although I’m wide awake (relatively) at 9-10 PM now, my anxiety, stress, etc is just as bad, if not more so.I can’t help wondering if the CPAP helping me to not have apneas has made my anxiety and stress worse. Has anyone else seen anything like this, or have you had the opposite outcome?
I didn’t find the right solution from the Internet.
