I was rated at 30% for sleep apnea. It says a higher evaluation of 50% is not warranted for your obstructive sleep apnea unless it requires use of breathing assistance device such as a cpap machine. I was given a cpap machine that I have been using and it has been helping out alot. So I am wondering now that I have the cpap how difficult is it going to be for me to get them to change my percentage from 30%-50%? Thanks for your time.

it is pretty simple, you can fill out a VA From 21-256 and send it to your regonal office along wiht your doctors notes or you can file for an increase through the VA VONAPP electronic system. the latter is much quicker.
