Sleep Test Results

image: simply-american.net
I slept like a ROCK last night. First time in FOREVER, and it felt so good!

Finally got the results from my sleep test. It feels like it was eons ago, but they called the other day and told me what I was TOTALLY not expecting. I thought they'd say it was that I didn't have sleep apnea. I put of making the appointment just because I KNEW I didn't have it. I thought it was a complete waste of time.

Well, it ends up that I have MILD sleep apnea. That makes me happy. I mean, I knew it wasn't severe. I also now get how I'm ALWAYS tired.

The woman on the phone told me that I stopped breathing six times. I'm thinking, yah, okay, not a biggie. Six times isn't a big deal. I can handle that, but yesterday the results arrived in the mail, and I got to peruse it a bit closer. It ends up that it's six times AN HOUR. What?!

So, yah. Still mild, but that WAY explains the tiredness, wouldn't you say?

Six times an hour is mild! What is the recommended treatment?

Yep. I'm just one episode an hour over the normal threshold. They said they'd do a CPAP machine or a dental device. I opted for the dental device.
