Well dang it all....I have to go back tonight for a sleep study. They found that mynoxygen levels drop down and I slept about an hour during a five hour time frame...ughbbb I so did not want this. And I soooo do not want to have to buy this machine..

Newfibrogirl I'm sorry this is happening to you. I can't imagine that you have to pay $800 for one night for a sleep study!! What happens if you can't sleep at all? How can you with all that shit hooked up to your body. I am sending you gentle {{{Hugs}}} and prayers that you get the solution to what is wrong and that your burden of paying off the bills is not stressful. Know that they can make payment plans for low payments over time. πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸ˜

I oppose it all goes better for you tonight. Hugs & prayers! πŸ˜·πŸ™πŸŒΌπŸ’•

Michelled.. Yeah.. I feel the same.. The doctor won't be available when the test ends since they wake us at around 5 am and the techs are not allowed to give details about the nights sleep. Which I know they are actually watching since my tech was laughing at my phone during the night. Saudvit looked like the star ship entetprise..lol

If I remember correctly, you will be hucked up the a cpap machine and then is when you find out what your # would be on Your own cpap machine. I am supposed to be on a cpap adapt but moved and I didn't have insurance and that machine would cost me ....are you sitting down? $6,000!! So I don't have it ,but now that I have insurance I am have to have another sleep study here. New I pray that you can actually sleep better! If you get migraines the cpap machine will actually be much better!

You're probably out by now but typically your primary can read the sleep study report. If not asleep don't stress. It is hard to sleep because they keep waking you up as well. I have a mild case recommended machine but not enough for ins to cover. The machines can be bought used and you can see how many hours it was used. In many cases the user wasn't comfortable and felt they couldn't sleep with so toss. There are lots of masks and they run about $100. You could have all new tubes even for an extra $50. I find it helps me rest w the white noise and calms my breathing. Ditto all that if you don't sleep you have worse pain. I don't know fibro but Crps we never rem. Rem is where they think we heal. Mine helps me but not for everyone.

I'm actually in the mask now. It's right uncomfortable. They probably watching me now like put that phone down...lol I'm a lot stressed. But I'm gonna try and turn my mind off and let this work. My mouth is dry its making me cough..I'm in a nose mask.

Jan 13, 2016 11:14 PM

There are a few different kinds of masks. You get the funny line all the way up? I got that my first night. If not, maybe they have a different one you could try? Mine is full mouth and nose. Some folks never get used to it. It took me a while ;)
