Merrill Posted June 8, 2004 Report Share Posted June 8, 2004 I posted several weeks ago that I was going to have a sleep study... and I had it last night. I'm sooooo glad it's over! I'll be happy to share the details if anyone wants to know what the process is like before you go through yours. The bottom line--I slept better than I thought I would, and I think I may even have slept better than at home. With all those wires, I couldn't toss and turn as I normally do, and of course there was no clock! (I think I'll get rid of my clock radio and have my husband tie me up at night. Maybe that will help! )I am aware, however, that I fully awakened 5 times (and had to get out of bed once); the technician reported that I did have several apneas when I was lying on my left side, but then I turned myself over and they stopped.It takes 2 weeks to get the full report; they slow down the tapes and look for apneas and other sleep arousals that the technician wouldn't have seen just watching me in real time. If I learn anything that would be of interest, I'll post again.Take care, all.m Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
