    I woke up several times Friday and Saturday night but only once last night. I am finally getting used to the CPAP. I have felt really alert the last few days and finally have enough energy to start a diet and exercise. I think this will be a life changeing experiance for me.

    I took one because I’m the nervous type in strange new environments . Tonight is my first night home with the CPAP machine. I was diagnosed with severe sleep Apnea. 3,500 dollars for the thing(i have to pay 10% of it). I hope it will make be feel better because I have felt exhausted and sick for the past few years.

    I don’t think I’ll need the Ambien – I can fall asleep ANY TIME, ANY WHERE…I KNOW I’ve got sleep apnea..I told the lab when a previewed the place, that they could put the leads on me NOW and get the results – they said they need at least 6-1/2 hours of observing to evaluate. I hope the other evaluees say “I heard you snoring!!!” in the morning…..

    I checked out the sleep lab I’m going to next Wed. Very nice — they have cable and a DVD player and encourage you to bring a movie….

    Also, I think the tech will probably let you try a CPAP machine before you go to sleep in case they find you have Sleep Apnea. I was relieved the Tech let me try it for about 5 minutes before I went to sleep so I knew what to expect if he woke me in the middle of the night to wear it. I actually kind of enjoyed being able to breath and sleep for once at night. The tech said he was sure I have Sleep Apnea but the DR must be the one to make the final decision.

    I went last night, I recommend you to contact your Doctor and ask for a 10Mg Ambien just in caseyou can’t fall asleep. I fell asleep in less than 15 minutes at 9:30 pm. The Tech woke me up 1:30AM and put the CPAP on me and than I woke up at 5:00AM an was free to go. I will goback to buy a Machine later this Week after thr DR. reads my results.

    Did you go? I have set an appointment for my ‘sleep over’ on Feb. 11th. I think this must be the EASIEST test EVER GIVEN…..You show up, you go to sleep, no muss no fuss. How was it?

    Thank you for this video!! I most likely have sleep apnea but have been so apprehensive about the sleep study that i have been putting it off for a very long time. I think I’ll call on monday and set it up.

    I wake up in the middle of the night with a LOUD snort, and for the next minute or so, I’m gasping for breath.
