Hi everyone, I hope everyone is getting some relief from their pain today. I went for a Sleep Study last night to rule out Sleep Apnea as my problem with sleeping. This was ordered by my cardiologist due to the fact that I have 7 stents with 2 new ones in January due to heart attack. I have complained about not sleeping for years due to chronic back and leg pain due to nerve damage and excessive scar tissue for years. I wear a 100mcg Fentanyl patch, take 10/325 hydrocodone, lunesta, etc. So I went for my sleep study last night. I slept a total of 1.5 hours, and woke up six times. Needless to say, Sleep Apnea is not my problem. The technologist asked me if this was normal, and I told him probably somewhat better than normal in that I actually remembered 2 dreams. So this study willl be sent back to my cardio and primary doctors. My question is where do I go from here? I told my wife that they will probably prescribe me a horse tranquilizer, but I sure hope that is the result. I guess I am looking to see if anyone else has gone through this and what did their doctors end up doing? I cant wait to see my cardiologist, due to the fact that he laughs, and says no one can sleep that little. Well, now we have the proof. I am going to try to take a nap now
I hope everyone got a good nights sleep!!
