I just had a sleep study done because my wife informs me that I could have sleep apnea. She says sometimes I stop breathing and can last for a while before I wake gasping for air. I don't believe this happens regularly. Some days I wake feeling refreshed and like I got a good nights sleep. Other nights I feel chest pain upon waking and I feel exhausted.
I know that it will take several days to get my responses back but I woke up by the technician this morning and I felt refreshed, leading me to believe I probably was sleeping very soundly with little snoring. Is it possible to have occasional sleep apnea and if so how do they test for it?
My snoring can be dealt with most nights by my wife and usually she can just roll me and I stop. However other nights it's so severe she can go and sleep on the first floor and still hear me in my closed room on the second floor, and we do have white noise that plays too. I run 2 fans.
