For the new year (2016) I finally got to start ASV treatment. in 2014 I was woken by a terrorized (now) fiance because I don't breathe when I sleep. In the spring of the next year I had my first sleep study where the tech basically looked at me very confused when I arrived because she wasn't use to seeing a mid-twenty year old female in her sleep lab. She woke me up the next morning with another confused look saying that I have complex sleep apnea, and cpap didn't do anything (cpap had been put on in the middle of the night). I'm not told much but somehow get my next sleep study half a year later and ASV works and I again try to figure out what to do next-- I do a follow up at the local clinic where they do at least give me a copy of my sleep study-- and a lecture about how losing weight is what I really need to do (until I ask if that is really the cure for the central sleep apneas--then the doc admits to having not read the report). It takes another few months to actually get all the paperwork together for getting the machine -- luckily I started a new job and new insurance kicked in this January, which made the process much quicker (in two days after they got my info I had the machine... it was exciting!)
Of course, with the actual sleep study report I did get to see my actual numbers, while my O2 didn't go below 88% in the first study... they did measure an ahi of 150, mostly central events.
I guess my question is now, what do I expect? I'm a few weeks in and mostly just feel tired, but not the crashing type of tired I was before where I would get home and just am done for the day. Mostly it feels like I just need more sleep and if I don't get enough I get very cranky. It actually seems very weird to just feel tired all day. I use to get up early and have energy until early evening and then I would just crash and nothing could get done.
It just feels weird to be tired I guess?
