I had my sleep study, and was told I have mild to moderate sleep apnea. I’m scared all over again. Any advice? I’m so anxious now to even fall asleep
Sad all over again : I had my sleep study... - Anxiety Support
Hey friend! I have a heart issue PRIOR to sleep apnea, was diagnosed in January 2019 with sleep apnea, still haven't got my CPAP yet lol don't stress it friend. Now do not wait like I have lol but you're not going to die. I promise you. Just go get the machine and you'll honestly feel better over time. You'll get to the point you can't sleep without it.
Thank you! I appreciate the reply. Why don’t you have a cpap yet? Will you be getting one?
Yes I will be getting it. I didn't get it because of Covid and my appointment kept getting pushed off. I will get it. You can't be afraid of this. I'm proof of that! It'll be ok. I do promise you!
Getting diagnosed and treated for sleep apnea was one of the best things i have done. I didn't realize how fatigued I was until after I started using my cpap unit. It really helped with the fatigue and my sleeping. It took my going through a number of different mask types until I found what worked for me, which is pretty common. Once you get use to it, you will be glad you did.
It’s very common.. just get the Cpap and the problem is solved. I wear one and love it.
Do any of you have advice for what to do to get rest until I get my cpap?
Have you had sleep paralysis before?
Yes I have for sure!
I’ve had it too, it was the worst
It’s so scary when you have it! I almost have to fight out of it
It made me scared of going to sleep
Yes! I’m even there now. I get so anxious and stressed going to bed
Have u talked to ur doctor about this
Yes! She wants me to take medications. That’s why I had a sleep study to see how to help.
Okay good. I hope your medicine helps
Thank you. Has your fear of this left? If so how did you get past IT?
Well with my sleep paralysis fear I went on anxiety medication and it went away. I hope it never comes back. It is so frightening.
Also don’t lay on your back I heard that can cause sleep paralysis
See, I always end up on my back when I try really hard to sleep on my side. I’m going to try to work on that tonight. Also possibly a better sleep routine to get ready for bed
