I noticed improved alertness, feeling more rested and more energy beginning on the first night but it has not reached a level that I would consider really good. I was definitely feeling better though.
I have had frequent (6-10) episodes of wakefulness per night for about 25 years. I usually go back to sleep quickly. I did the sleep hygiene routine and found of set things that help but I have never completely resolved the issue. Told my sleep doc this was still going on, he suggested trying to figure out what was waking me up and/or waiting to see if it stops between now and my next visit in 6 months. I could live with that until . . .
I started having longer periods of wakefulness during the night in the last couple weeks. I'm waking up after about 3-4 hours of sleep and I'm not getting back to sleep until about an hour before I have to get up at best. While this leaves me tired, I am not as groggy and fuzzy minded as I felt before starting CPAP. I still don't know what is waking me up.
Anyone with similar experiences? Suggestions?
What should I be looking for on my sleepyhead data? Is there a way for me to mark waking up without involving a clock?
Thanks for reading this.
