I really always did want to do a sleep study. And while it was miserable and I felt like I never slept what with all those wires all over me, I was still glad I did it. But I never wished to do it TWICE!
Yeah, got my results today. Mild sleep apnea during non-REM sleep. If there is apnea during non-REM sleep, there is probably more severe apnea during REM sleep. Unfortunately when I had my sleep study, I never got into a good REM stage of sleep. So basically I was barely asleep all night which is how I feel most nights. And they want me to do it again, with something to help me get into REM sleep. Not Ambien but something similar.
Won't have my laptop with me so I won't shop.
One sleep study is cool, two? Cruel and unusual punishment.
But, since I would like to know what it feels like to wake up actually feeling like I have rested, I will do it again. Besides, did you know that if you do not sleep well your metabolism slows down and makes it more difficult to lose weight?
Me neither. And either that's true or these people have already figured me out and know what to tell me to motivate me.
