Sleep Apnea!
August 06, 2007 @ 01:50:33 pm
I have recently been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea Sleep Apnea.

What this means is, i have pauses in breathing while i am sleeping at night. They occur repeatedly through the night, and so my sleep is severely disrupted. The outcome of this is i am often tired, and still very sleepy during the day.

Not Long ago i had a Sleep Study, i had to sleep overnight at a hospital and they did a polysomnogram on me. This was not something i would want to often, being as i had all these wires on me and it was not very comfortable etc

Now i have to go back and learn to use a C-Pap machine. Which will help stop the pauses etc.
I just hate feeling so tired all the time and my sleep being disrupted causes this. Makes me feel like crap and ruins the day for me....

All you can do is get it checked out!

I wake up, but it is not a conscious wake up, in other words, i dont realise that i am awake, and fall asleep almost immediately afterwards...

I just hope this damn machine helps..I havent used it yet, but it sounds quite awkward and i wonder if i can get used to it..

Good for You, glad you got the study done. I have the same problem, was having 60 waking episodes an hour (severe). The Cpap machine will do wonders, once you get used to it, you will notice a Huge change in the quality of sleep. I was waking with headaches, eliminated those, too. It may be uncomfortable at first, you will have to work through it.

Best wishes...
