Hyperbaric medicine, also known as hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), is the medical use of oxygen at a level higher than atmospheric pressure. (article - Wikipedia)

...

How do you feel and think about HBOT?  Your experiences.  Pros, cons, other.

Is the cost of HBOT worth it?  How long did it take to see any results at all?  Did you try HBOT (for a fee) and find it did not work at all?  What are the actual benefits to HBOT?

I haven't tried HBOT, but my neurologist tested me for sleep apnea.  You can get oxygen while you sleep if you have sleep apnea.  I had some breathing problems, but it turned out to be due to an inner ear infection.  I hit my head on the R side and had a lot of ear issues (vertigo and fluid build up).  After I got the fluid out of my ear with an EarDoc device (see Youtube) the breathing problems went away. 

I went on Amantadine for concentration/memory problems and this seems to be working well. My neurologist said that I can stay on it for the rest of my life if I need to.
