I worry about the same thing. Both my mom and her only sister had early mastectomies, and on the other side my grandmother and both her sisters died of breast ca.

But there are just certain things you shouldn’t get tested for because of the legal ramifications. For instance, the doctor wanted to check my son for sleep apnea. But do you know that certain states have talked about limiting the driver’s licenses of anyone with such a diagnosis?

And just think of Hillary computerizing everyone’s medical records....

Please educate your self on sleep apnea, I have friends with it and it’s no joke. If it’s a possibility, I’d suggest getting him checked.

While you think you may be protecting him, enabling him to get a license when of age....if he develops severe apnea,well getting him a drivers license will be the last of your concerns.

If your son does have sleep apnea, it can severely limit his life because he’s always tired, and eventually it could kill him. I wouldn’t fool around with it.

And as the earlier poster said, driving with untreated sleep apnea just isn’t a wise idea.
