My sleep test is tonight. update

Posted by   + Show Post

I was just called, and the sleep test will be tonight. If I need the second night, it will be next Monday. They had a cancellation, and I don't mind doing it tonight, only I hadn't planned for it and was going to be sure to get up extra early as suggested. But OK.  So I am going to get my shower and teeth and meds all done before I go over so I just have to change my clothes and relax, hehehe.

Update: Well the best part was being able to sit and read while the tech hooked up another lady in another bedroom down the hall. I changed into jammies, he hooked about 15 or so monitors to my scalp, legs, chest, face, neck. And that was it. I thought I'd be able to read some more, but it was lights out.

The room was furnished as a bedroom,  reasonably comfortable, with private bath. I brought my own pillow and little blanket. Didn't sleep much because I was worried about whether I'd sleep. LOL!  This morning the tech got me up at 5:30 and at 6 I was on my way home.  They'll call with results.

They didn't say.  I guess when the doctor has time to evaluate the test.

I have never done one because I know that I wouldn't sleep.  I hope you were able to get some good information.

 My son had one and they stopped it early because he quit breathing so often and for so long..

My neighbor had one about 2 months ago.  It was at a VA hospital they let his wife sleep in the room with him.  Craziest thing I have ever heard..

Thats to bad that you didnt get hardly any sleep at all.  They are going to tell you have insomnia. LOL  They should of let you read until you dozed off naturally.

Quoting Bmat:

I'm very bad at sleeping in strange places. The first night I typically don't sleep. So I just took a walk, and I'll take reading material, and my pillow, and see how it goes.

Quoting Esmrlda:

Good luck!  How are you at sleeping at strange places?

I don't understand how that can work because it is not a typical night's sleep. Wouldn't anybody have trouble sleeping like that? I always do when I am away from home.

Exactly, sounds like a scam to me. I dont know why they cant let the people do the test at home.  They could just come and hook them up at night and bring the monitor unless of coarse its too big n bulky .  I wonder if Insurance covers it, I bet it gets denied often for medical necessity.

I wondered too, since I can't sleep in a new place. And this time I was anxious about sleeping besides. :(

Thanks. Yeah, I always read before I go to bed. A good part of my bedtime routine was messed up.  LOL! Well since both techs were men you might have wanted to come up with something. I had worn a tanktini under my jammie top and am glad that I did.  :)
