how do i go about arranging one?

do i see my regular doctor for referral?

i just can't see me scheduling an appointment, paying a $50 copay, and pouring my heart out about why no one will sleep with me.
apparently i snore. loudly. which doesn't seem to bother me too much. however, i do wake up exhausted. which might be from playing musical sleeping spots during the night.....

my resolution is to just sleep alone forever. but, on the occasional over night trip to exciting places like Waukegan, i will invariably be woken up in a strange hotel room in the middle of the night by dgitw screaming at me to roll over and stop snoring in her face.

the mask thing? can't see myself wearing it. 1)there's not a plug by the couch. 2)i'm a restless sleeper. what happens if i roll over in the middle of the night and kink the hose, cutting off my oxygen supply? what a lame ass way to die. 3) i like to sleep til the last possible minute. wake up, throw on clothes, dash out the door in a mad panic. i have a feeling that i'll be arriving to work with mask lines on my face. not acceptable.

so, what else is there? a magic pill? a special pillow? and ergonomic vibrating bed?

i need help!!!!!!

well, not me. but.....my sleeping partners do.

They just referred my husband to one. But he is holding off to see if the weight loss helps. He's a commercial truck driver and a diagnosis of sleep apnea would not be a good thing for him. If no one else responds before I can get the info from him (He's on his way in from Mississippi right now) I will post it to you.

so, a diagnosis of sleep apnea is pretty much what i'm expecting. i'm just not so sure what to ultimately do about it.

also, i'm not sure i like the idea of sleeping in front of strangers in order to get the diagnosis.

I sleep with a CPAP. I was afraid of how I would do because I said I toss and turn and roll over etc... What I found out was, once I got the mask on, I slept so good that I no longer toss and turn and roll over!

Also, even if you get a kink in the hose or even if the machine cuts off (power goes out, etc) the mask is designed so that you can still breath with the mask on and power off or hose kinked...no worries there.

As far as mask lines...it's not that bad really. Especially since I suspect you will be getting better quality of sleep so you won't have to sleep till the last minute, you will most likely wake up early.

bottom line, if you are having this much problems, there's no excuse in the world that you could come up with that is worth NOT going and finding out and taking care of this. You will be amazed at how much better you feel.

There are several possible outcomes from a sleep test, only one of which is the machine. Other possible outcomes include medication and surgery. During a test, after the first few minutes there is a videotape, and the technician and noy literally watching you the whole time. It is worth doing.

I spent the money for the sleep test. They tried two different masks on me but I could never adjust to using one. Discomfort, noise and couldn't fall asleep were my big problems. I gave up but according to my wife, I am not having some of the issues now. just luck.

Yes for him but maybe not for you. He didn't begin to have these problems until a massive weight gain in the last decade. So they are thinking that if he can get back to a healthy weight it may alleviate the symptoms. Because it is so detrimental for his work, they suggested the concentration on weight loss first.
Apnea may not be your issue though. The sleep tests aren't so bad. I was born seizure prone and used to have to have them done once a year (monitoring brain waves or something) you kind of get used to the sleep tests, at least I did.

I know this sounds too easy to work, but it does. Try cutting out your consumption of carbohydrates. Try not to eat sugars and starches several hours before bed time, along with alcohol. Losing weight will help as well. Big sky guarantee!

Its really not that bad. Its like sleeping in a motel with wires stuck all over you.....lol I was there when the tornado hit Atlanta and I never knew there was bad weather that night. I like to never got that goo out of my hair. I have a bi-pap machine and I cant always sleep with it but it helps. There has been a lot of things mentioned that may come out of it. Your Dr. will try to help before he sends you there. Meds a lot of times helps. It helped me for a while but I had back issues that I discovered after I had surgery that caused a lot of my sleep troubles.

I sleep with my CPAP machine and it's great. It's actually given me more energy during the day since I'm sleeping better and it's helping me to lose weight.

You might try that nose thing. There is some kind of adhesive that sticks to the sides of your nose and opens up your nostrils to ease breathing through the nose. I've also seen the mouth gizmo that juts your jaw forward by the placement of the teeth and that opens the airway as well.

They may be available at your local drug store as an anti-snoring aid. Maybe worth a try.

LOL....not sure if I would call it an adhesive. More like caulk gel and I had two tests. Sleep apnea is when your sleeping your tongue relaxes and blocks your airway that causes you to wake up to breath. That why there is a lot of tossing and turning because you cant rest if you keep waking up to breathe. I didn't realize how many health issues are related to sleep apnea until I did some research on my own. I don't wear a mask I have the one that goes just in my nose and it a bi-pap which means it controls my air flow when I breathe in and out. It also has a humidifier the help with my allergies which for me is all year long. Start with your Dr. and see what he says. It took me awhile until I went to the sleep clinic.

dammit. i'm allergic to adhesives!!!

I got my referal from my primary (East Paulding Welstar) and then the center is in Douglasville. Down side - they woke my a$$ up at 6 AM and told me I didn't have apnea and to go home. Dude- let me sleep to 10 am and bring me some zeusn bagels and cream cheese along with some Starbucks decaf.

Anything that isn't a CPAP is a gimmick. Don't waste your money or the gas it costs to go down to CVS.

They told me my "sleep efficiency" was 65% and should be 85% minimum; but that I didn't have apnea. The MD wrote a scrip for a sleeping pill. I didn't bother filling it - I would rather just snore. Doesn't bother me, and whoever is with me is welcome to sleep in another room.

I almost feel the same way. as long as it's not found to be life threatening, I'll just continue to snore like a hog.
perhaps I can give the sleeping pills to my family instead?

Only true apnea is dangerous, and even the the odds of life threatening heart issues are below 1%. For every thousand people with apnea, there is one Reggie White. Snoring merely causes dry throat and lower sleep efficiency. So I sleep 9 hours instead of 7. Big whoop. I like dreaming anyway.

I'm allergic to the adhesive in the cloth bandaids, and most of the types they use in hospitals. The gookey glue stuff they stick the electrodes to your head with did not cause the same reaction. Although, I have to say the digging around in your head with the orange stick or whatever they use isn't too pleasant. It has been about 25 years since I stopped having to have the tests however, so things may have changed a bit. I had them from the age my seizures first appeared (2) until 20.
Sleep apnea does cause so many other issues, cardiovascular included.

Here is some info I received in an email on a upcoming free webinar on Buteyko Breathing and how it pertains to sleep apnea and asthma. Dr. Park is an authority on sleep apnea. He has free webinars where he interviews experts regularly. Last month it was about an device that is implanted and was compared to a pacemaker. They are doing research on that.

Can Buteyko Breathing Help Sleep Apnea?

Please join me for my next Expert Interview on October 25th, at 8PM Eastern. This month, I've invited Buteyko breathing instructor Patrick Mckeown to talk to us about how this breathing technique can improve symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea. This is also a great way to control asthma.

They just referred my husband to one. But he is holding off to see if the weight loss helps. He's a commercial truck driver and a diagnosis of sleep apnea would not be a good thing for him. If no one else responds before I can get the info from him (He's on his way in from Mississippi right now) I will post it to you.


Rhonda, my husband has been a truck driver for years and has sleep apnea. It is not as bad as you might think. Yes- on his DOT physical he has to show where he has kept up with the sleep doctor routine appointments but he still passes his physicals and gets his 3 year medical card. I think if I remember correctly the first year he was only given a 1 year medical card but after that it went right back to 3.
When he was on the road- he took his machine with him and it really wasn't that big of a deal.
Hubby says he can tell a HUGE difference when he sleeps with and without it.
Good luck to your hubby but it is not as devastating as it might seem.

I had my sleep study done at the one behind Douglasville hospital. It was really great. There was me and one other person getting a sleep study. They really work with you to make sure you're comfortable. My setup was just like a bedroom, they let you watch TV until you're ready to go to sleep. I was better than trying to sleep in a hotel.

It could be that you have a dieveated (spelling...not sure at ALL...lol) septum. That is my problem...Just a little surgery where they basically break your nose and give you a sligh nose job and you will be alllllll better............

I had a nose job years ago. apparently, I just snore like a hog.

I've been CPAP-ing for more than 10 years. I now have an AUTO-Pap which senses how much pressure I need to keep the airway open. It varies the pressure both while I inhale or exhale. I've had both the regular CPAP and the BiPAP and had trouble acclimating to them. The auto pap costs a ton of $$$, but once it is fitted, no more sleep tests.

I use a mask called the Breeze from Malinkrodt . It is light, no strap marks, and it is pretty comfortable.

My sleep doc is Arris Iatradis at Georgia Lung. He's a good 'un.

Calling an illegal alien an "undocumented worker" is like calling a drug dealer an "unlicensed pharmacist".
