    so if you are capable of diagnosing people through their computer, why are you wasting time driving.

    I should make your thoughtful diagnosis easier. i am 5'9 weigh 180, ride bicycles regularly up to 50 mile distances, in fact I'm captain of our team. i work out daily, eat healthy, have BP of 120/80 don't smoke and only drink a little.

    I guess you were able to see symptoms that my own doc wasn't aware of? I should call him now and let hiim know I'm on to him being a quack. A professional in the medical field has diagnosed me right over the internet...

    i'm just one of those people who does not like doing anything medical that I do not need. the thought of trying to sleep with a bunch of crap hooked to me definitely seems like something I do not want or need.

    I once had a lady tell me I had extra bones in my ankles and should have them removed. (no joke) Seems her doctor had found extra bones in her ankles and once they were removed her entre life was changed. it would do wonders for me too according to her. apparently if it helped her it would help anyone. funny thing, before the doctor mentioned it, she didn't have any issues with her ankles.

    the power that doctors have is frightening to say the least.

    If what you say about yourself is true than you have nothing to worry about. They are after us fat guys. All yeah got to know is how to answer the questions. No i dont snore i feel well rested after i sleep. I dont wake up during the night. Like i said you have nothing to worry about for any company.

    yeah I know I should have no problem with it. It seems like some co's require it of every driver. if that is the case they are going to try and show a need for cpap just to pad their pockets. once it is on your med card I doubt if it is easy to remove. plus the fact that I have no desire to sleep with a monitor for a study.

    well guys the sleep test is done on drivers with a bmi over 42. they usually have you to sleep overnight during your orientation week. then if you test positive they have you to see a sleep doctor to be evaluated. then if he declare you have it after testing you you have to be treated. by sleeping on a c-pap machine. min 4hrs a day. i have it and they were not going to pass my D.O.T. PHYSICAL WITHOUT IT. eVERY YEAR I have to see the doctor before I get physical. thank God I have good ins. its expensive and you have to be 80% for 2 6mths periods. i see doctor every 6mths.

    I have been on CPAP for years. Since I already know I have it, and use a CPAP 100% of the time, will the companies accept that with no problems?
