        I've had mine for a month. Still not used to it. However, the little I'm able to wear it before tearing it off at night has eliminated my naps...still don't have any energy during the day. Hoping after I'm able to leave it on all night for a few nights in a row that I'll find out where that energy has been hiding! Good luck to you, and pleasant dreams!

        I can wear the full face mask all night but only if i sleep on my back which is not fun for me... So I got some nasal pillows so I could sleep on my side however the pillows hurt so I have to play with the sizes.

      Well my PCM got me a CPAP machine so I'm told. I guess it takes 1-2 weeks for it to clear Tricare. Cant remember if S.A. is unfitting

        You may want to start a log of the migraine events and before you seperate get a new copy of your medical file to make your claim for migraines through the VA. Additional 30%

      Always go with the less invasive procedure first. The Microdiscectomy will only remove the part of the disk that is pushing on the nerve and causing the problem. I am not sure to what extent you have damage. The other benefit to this proceedure is the recovery time. The time is much less than a fusion would be.

        Agreed, I couldnt figure out why spinal fusion was the first thing out of this guys mouth. I have two buldged disc l4l5s1 DDD through-out. and annulear tears in those three discs. hense the disography.. i guess. My off base specialist never mentioned a fusion, however this on base Civ doc is... Sounds fishy to me. Thanks for the imput!

    Currently AD AF. Code 37 Oct 25 2012.

    Typical lumbar problems, bulged disc, DDD, etc. 2 x-rays 2 MRI's.
    Currently looking for surgical options. Disc-oh-gram/discography comming soon to check my disc. If they are good, microdisektomy is an option if not spinal fusion, so i am told.

    Also just DX with Mild sleep apnea.

    As well as a bunch of 0-10% claims.

    No narsum because I am still being treated.

    I have failed 4-5 pt test and have a Admin Sep package running with MEB/IDES. Squadron hates me blah blah blah. Currently on a FULL Compostie DLC.

    Just 7-6-12 I was denied a refferal to my primary nuerosurg. that happens to be an off base provider. DAWG says I can be seen on base!!!!
    Any questions ask away!
