What an interesting thread.
I have sleep Apnea, diagnosed a couple of years ago, and after incredible struggles getting used to a machine am now happily using an ASV CPAP machine.

It is ironic that what I now know as early gout symptoms in my 50’s
coincided with weight gain and the beginning of Sleep Apnea.

The comment re doctors not having the time to give info to patients rings true
in my case. I have a few physical things going on, as is normal at 67, so
its not surprising that I have to research my own conditions.

For anyone else who also has Sleep Apnea and has not been there yet,
a great forum is the Apnea Board

I look forward to reading this forum and hopefully will find a way
through the gout pain…
all the best,
Stephen
