I need to get a sleep study done. I am currently going to school, not working and have no insurance. I didn't know if there are free or low cost sleep studies in/around the Philadelphia area.
I am constantly tired, gasping for air in my sleep after I stop breathing, as well as snoring excessively loud. I am 28 years old and this has been going on for as long as I can remember.
Sometimes I have been sleeping through school and appointments because I am so tired. I have been dealing with depression for a long time. Although depression can cause people to be tired, I truly believe I have sleep apnea. I don't know what to do. Any advice would be helpful. Thank you.
Have you checked to see if there are any free clinics near you? They usually have "arrangements" with other specialties and labs that cover most if not all of the costs. The equipment is another story. One that I'm currently dealing with as well.
WELCOME! to the forum.!
Hang in there for more suggestions and best of luck to you.
