My sleep study showed I had moderate sleep apnea with a score of 28. But I never thought my real problem was with my breathing, it was with my insomnia. The Doctor suggested that the reason I would wake up wide awake is that an apnea woke me up and my body reacted with a shot of adrenaline. I took that at face value and was hopeful that CPAP would resolve this issue.
The first couple weeks I did notice a change in my sleep patterns and much of the time, I was able to get back to sleep after waking up.
Now, unfortunately I see that my sleep pattern is the same as it was before CPAP. I sleep my usual 3-4 hours and then wake up wide awake and am not able to go right back to sleep. When this first happened after using CPAP, I mentioned this on this board and some respondents suggested that my body was reacting to the 3-4 hours of sleep on CPAP as better quality sleep than before and because of this, my body decided that 3-4 hours of quality sleep was an improvement.
I dunno... it's just a bit discouraging that I'm back in my usual routine. I know 100 days is not a big amount of time compared to others on this board, but I had hoped that the CPAP would have improved the length of my sleep by now.
