Then she tells me it's another two weeks before the interpretation comes back and they can order my machine.
I'm so frustrated at this point. I saw the dr. for the first time on Nov. 11th, 2013. It has taken over 6 months to get to this point. I've been tired for much longer.
Two months ago, I was put on oxygen for sleeping because my levels were so low at night. The oxygen doesn't help that much. Not even sure what it's really for. If I stop breathing then I'm not breathing the oxygen either.
I just can't wait to get this done and taken care of. Once my titration study is done, I am switching Drs. I've been lied to and put off for way too long.
Wish I had come here first. Then at least I would have known more of what to ask. All I really remember was that he said I had over 20 episodes per hour in the early stages of sleep, but more than 70/hour during REM. I don't even know what kind of episodes they were. He didn't even mention the oxygen part. I learned of it when I was checking out with reception. He had told me it went low, but didn't tell me I'd be put on oxygen until I could get a machine. When I talked to the girl yesterday, she said I may have to use the oxygen with the machine. I thought it was just to get me through.
I'm so lost, confused, frustrated, and tired. Sorry for the rant. Thank you for all the wonderful information on here though.
