Partial Update

So I did that last sleep study with the PES (long story short, they put a tube up your nose, down your throat, and into your chest and inflate a balloon at the end of it to measure air pressure) and it didn't show UARS (upper airway restriction syndrome), but it did show obstructed sleep apnea. So I have a follow-up visit to get a cpap and after I'm on that for a month with no problem, the doctor will give me oxycontin for my RLS.

  • Some progress for you, let us know how you get on with the cpap machine.... :) That sleep study sounded horrible...

  • It was way worse than I thought it was going to be. I knew in the morning they were just going to yank the tube out... that was a "comforting" thought to try to fall asleep to. :P

  • Oh poor you, yuk.... Did you sleep ookla ..??

  • Apparently... but I can't say it was a pleasant night's sleep. Luckily, they only need two hours of data. I was worried they didn't get it since I kept waking up and they kept coming in to adjust that stupid tube. I hope the follow-up study with the cpap is a lot better.
