Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,
Have you had a sleep study?
There are 2 types of sleep apnea: central sleep apnea and obstructive sleep apnea.
Do you know which type you have?
Obstructive sleep apnea is not caused by exposure to the burn pits but has many other causes with the most common being obesity.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating (bonus appreciated) as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question.
What was in the shots that you were given?
These are some of the causes of sleep apnea aside from obesity:
I am sorry that you are dealing this right now.
What did they tell you they were for?
I have not heard of that before.
There is no evidence that any medication or injection can cause obstructive sleep apnea.
Is there anything else I can help you with?
If not, please don't forget to leave a rating, thanks!
