Im tapering from kratom now a bit sooner than the projected 90 days. The last three nights I've had some strange symtpoms of Central Sleep Apnea (again). I had this on phenibut, too. As i fall asleep, i notice how incredibly content i am to not breathe. I exhale and my next inhale doesnt come as naturally. Its freaky.
I had a home sleep study done when i was on phenibut and the results were startling. My blood oxygen levels were really low... The machine might have been wrong, but at one point it said I was at 89%. And it recorded 26 apneas in 4 hours.
All of this just confirms to me that meds and substances arent the answer for me at all. Opiods can cause Central Sleep Apnea, and Im officially considering Kratom an opiate in this regard. Im not taking anything else, have been great about supplements and exercise, and Ive never experienced anything like this.
My dad has obstructive sleep apnea, which occurs when the soft palate collapses and physically blocks the airway. Central SA occurs when the breathing center in the brain doesnt send proper signal to the body to inhale. My dad is fairly overweight so i think thats part of it for him. Ive never had any weight issues (beyond the extra 20 lbs from loperamide) so its scary to think i could actually end up with a stroke or heart condition from such a low does of a substance like kratom. Im done!
