I served on a Submarine from 1990 to 1994….. During that time we had o2 levels go so low that guys could not even light smoke with a lighter. Had to use a battery crossed to get hot to light? So someone cannot that cannot have an effect on your brain.
Last year I was diagnosed with sleep apnea. Yes, the question is why I waited so long to file this claim. I had a dentist tell me about three years after I had been out that I was a sever teeth grinder. At that point I was given a night guard. I went ne with that for a few years. Then in the last five I developed high blood pressure, cholesterol, anxiety, depression, and grd…. I started seeing a new doctor and she recommended a sleep study. Man has this changed my life.
I filed for my problems after consulting with her because she recommended I seek out some help from the VA if its at all possible…. So I have done so. I have had all the doctors I have seen since I got out of the Navy to send info to the VA. I have also had statements from people served with.
Has anyone else out there contribute their sleep apnea to life on a submairine?????
