Because NMD affects your muscles, you may not have the strength to breathe on your own. As you can imagine, if you can't breathe properly during the day, you won't have much energy to do many of the things you like to do. And not being able to breathe properly at night prevents your body from being able to perform its vital functions and recharge for the next day.
It’s important that you start treatment with a ventilator if your care provider has indicated it's suitable for you. Treating the breathing and sleeping issues caused by your NMD can make a huge difference to your quality of life. By being ventilated, the quality of your breathing will improve and you can start to enjoy a greater feeling of health.
