Sleep Study

I got the results of my sleep study today. I will be starting a CPAP machine for sleep apnea 🛌 which feels a little scary 😧 but I know it’s a good thing. I’m glad to finally get some answers on why I’m always so fatigued and hopefully in a few months I will start to feel less tired 🥱

Tips or suggestions on the subject are greatly appreciated. !

Sleep Study

I've been dealing with debilitating fatigue for a while now. My doctor wants me to do a sleep study so I'm doing that tonight and ALL DAY tomorrow. I'm nervous and know it's going to be very draining. On top of that I am in crunch time for my final exams and don't have time for anything so the stress is really piling up. I just feel like a prisoner in this body which has a mind of its own... I want answers but I'm afraid of what will come out of all of this.

The doctor who said I was too young to have sleep problems

I had sleep paralysis at 7 twice, it went away until a certain medication I took set it off. I stopped the medication as the psychiatrist said. The nurse wasn't answering the phone (she quit and no one was answering the phone for her). I had sleep paralysis for 2 weeks straight and ran off of 1-2 hours of sleep because I kept waking up, unable to move and speak as well as see hallucinations and hear things. I asked my psychiatrist if it was any of the meds I took for anxiety and depression and she said "no". I asked my PCP and said to ask my psychiatrist and vise versa. I asked my PCP for a sleep study but I was "too young" to be having problems, its "probably the psych meds" and the "chances of sleep paralysis is slim". Later on I BEGGED him for a sleep study. Turns out I have sleep phase disorder, sleep paralysis and periodic limb movement. this is not made to be a put down, i just want yall to know to never give up if you feel unwell, keep going and remember you'll make it through
Love ya

Do sleep specialist ever test our actual sleep patterns when our sleep schedule doesn't fit their guidelines?
