I should say that I am exhausted because I still have no treatment. I went for my first sleep study this past Friday night. What I found out today shocked me. In lighter sleep I have a stop breathing episode (for an average of 15 seconds each time) around 62 times per hour. In deeper sleep that number shoots up to 98 times per hour. The sleep specialist are so sure I will be returning for the CPAP part of the study that they went ahead and scheduled it for this coming Monday and said they would work the details out with the doctor.
I have read a short bit but already I know more than I did before I start this journey. I am so excited that I finally know why I am tired, why I can't remember anything and have deep circles under my eyes. The reason my limbs ache in the morning and my head pounds almost all day long every day. From what I hear this CPAP journey, though not easy at first, will change my life. As a writer, I can imagine how much more successful I could be if I get a little rest.
Wish me luck!!
