I was mildly concerned with waking up with a "pre headache". I didn't think I had sleep apnea but I was worried that my O2 was dropping during sleep. And of course I started panicking that I was getting brain fog. So my pulmonary doc suggested an at home study. I went to the facility, listened to a short run through, watched the Utube video numerous times , and thought I was good to go. I confess with computer stuff, Ikea put togethers , and all sorts of items I can be a moron for 20 minutes then I have always figured it out. Well I started putting on and attaching all the paraphernalia at 8.15 pm. Okay not too bad but the green light just stayed on and never blinked that it was recording. I checked all the connections ---I proceeded to redo every single step , re watched the video , memorized the hand out , even hooked it up without me. That ***** light stayed steady. Finally after over three hours I gave up.
I returned it along with my frustration and the receptionist said "Oh you're not the first-these machines can be unreliable. The sleep center will call you"
Ok a snarky woman called two days later " I guess you need someone to do it for you so reschedule a formal study"
I haven't had a headache in weeks and my friends seem to think my memory is basically the same. Has anyone taken the over night study---had a problem/? What were the results? I've tried to go to sleep with my oximeter on my finger but I'm sure as soon as I'm awake enough to read it ---it's up.
I haven't contacted my doc ---she only suggested the study because I was concerned .
Sorry that I always write my posts as epic novels. lol
