Sleep apnea, edema (is that spelled right?) and plantar fasciitis... oh my!

on 5/14/17 3:23 pm

So, my previous GP thought I had sleep apnea because I definitely had plantar fasciitis. She believes that my plantar fasciitis has been aggravated by an edema in the area of my calves which was caused by fluid retention due to lack of oxygen during sleep.

So, I had a sleep study and have been diagnosed with mild sleep apnea.

Is anyone familiar with this and what has been your experience with this?
