I had sleep apnea (now I don't) and confused
I'm not seeing the study. You can use our supplier list links at the top to obtain a prescription from Supplier #30, by completing a questionnaire and submitting any information pertaining to your previous and perhaps your current study. They charge a flat $99 fee for a physician review and prescription issuance. I think they may be a bit more considerate of your desires and concerns, but either way, if they issue the prescription, it is yours to use when and where you please.

First in home study (no EEG) in June 2013.

35 CAs
8 OAs
67 obstructed hypopneas

AHI = 10.5/hour
Lowest SAT was 82%.

Titration Lab study in July 2013...

AHI = 6.64
Lowest O2 SAT = 83%
No mention of RERAS on this lab study nor the newest lab study done in June 2015.

Both of my tests in 2013 showed both bradycardias and tachycardias.

My study in 2015 showed normal cardiac rhythm.

Some of our medical issues are similar. PE. Itchy feet.

Itchy feet for me-Grave's disease.

Hi multime,

Periodic Limb Movement (PLM) appears to be the dominant symptom during the 2015 sleep study. You may still need CPAP treatment after the PLM has been brought into control, but for now I think it appears that the PLM problem is so severe that it may be masking (preventing observation) of a less severe OSA problem.

I suggest taking these recent test results to a doctor which specializes in treating PLM.

After your PLM has been brought under control, perhaps that will be all that is needed for you to reach deep rejuvenating sleep, or perhaps also CPAP would be needed.

Perseverance will be needed to find the root problems of your PLM and lack of restful sleep.

Good luck and take care of yourself,
--- Vaughn
Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment. The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.
