Default Anybody had a sleep study?

I just scheduled my third. First two were ten years ago. Weirdest experience ever. They found out I was a reptile. Still canít sleep.

I had one about 10 years ago. They claim they've never had a patient that's woken up as much as I did without having sleep apnea.

Had one just last week. Was diagnosed with Sleep Apnea. Have to go back for another test on January 4th, only this time I'll be connected to one of those sleep apnea machines for the night. Oh joy.

7 or 8 years ago. I had so many events, they stopped the test after an hour and slapped a CPAP mask on me.

I got diagnosed with sleep apnea, but the CPAP machine doesn't help. Seems to help everyone else, but for the year I had the damn thing, I didn't get any better sleep than before.

Think I know more people who have had them than not had them at this point. They wanted me to have one... Yea no i cannot sleep for 2 or 3 nights at a new place, serious I'm lucky to get an hr a night then usually takes a week to get half assed back to normal. So it would never work for me even if they doped me.

I have been using the CPAP since 2009, and it is the best medication I have ever received. Yes. they hook you up to The Matrix and is a bitch to sleep with those wires. The first time I walked out, the second, third, and fourth I took an Ambien.

I take time to adjust to the mask while you sleep, but once you are in, you will never be able to sleep without it.

I drugged myself for two weeks to get used to the mask. The mask doesn't bother me anymore, but I still have the same sleep issues. The wife is happier as I'm not snoring when I am asleep.
