I was diagnosed with sleep apnea in 2011. I didn t know snoring really loud was a condition until the girl I was seeing, couldn t stand sleeping next to me. So I went in to see a doctor and a sleep study was performed. The results were that I have Obstructive Sleep Apnea. In 2006 I was diagnosed with hypertension and since then, I ve been diagnosed with CHF and dilated cardiomyopathy in 2012. I ve done the research referring to WWW.WWWW.WW This particular page relates untreated sleep apnea to hypertension and I believe, I ve had sleep apnea for years that has gone undiagnosed because of these facts; - I was diagnosed with hypogonadism in 2000, which I ve been being prescribed Testosterone Replacement Therapy since 2000, as well. - The testosterone injections has caused me to gain a lot of weight. I was 160 lbs before I began treatment for my hypogonadism and throughout the years, I have continuously gained weight to where my weight is at 280 on average. IAW my medical records, my doctors state that I have high hips, making my waistline an easy 40 inches plus on average. - I was being prescribed 400 mg/ 2 weeks for 10 years before my doctors decided I was taking too much and decided to lower my dosage to 200 mg/2 weeks. - During treatment on TRT, I ve had a heart attack, been diagnosed with insomnia, depression, PTSD, sleep apnea, CHF, Hypertension and Dilated Cardiomyopathy, amongst just a few of my conditions. - I am still being treated for all of these conditions & I wear a CPAP when I sleep at night. *My question is, can I have a doctor type a statement relating my sleep apnea to my hypertension? I am requesting this for VA Compensation Benefits. I feel that the VA Hospital works hand in hand with the VA Regional Office, so its hard to get any of my requests met without feeling like I m asking them to go out of their way to assist me.
