    Question on events

    Sometimes after I use the bipap machine, I continue to wear the equipment while awake, waiting to see if I will go back to sleep. My events may be above 10- like 10.7 and as I wear it awake, the events go down. Have I caused the value to be erroneously low because my bipap was on while I was awake?

    Taking sertraline during sleep study

    I recently had a polysomnography done and an MSLT because I fall asleep very easily and I'm sleepy all the time. It was suspected Narcolepsy. However, when getting my results back it was found that I didn't get any REM sleep at all during the night study or the naps. Yet I fell asleep in two of the naps in less than 5 minutes. I was taking Sertraline at the time, which I've read can interfere with REM sleep. Should I have been taken off of it before the sleep study? Could it have affected....

    Weird experience during the night

    For quite a while now I have been being woken in the night with these zap feelings through my body which stops me from getting back to sleep, I also feel confused about sleep/anything in general whilst it’s happening and have a fast sensation that everything I think and do is going fast and that nothing makes sense! Sometimes I convince myself there are two of me and I have to really concentrate on myself to realise there is only one of me. I tend to either sit up or lie on my back as it happens....

    Narcolepsy? Hypersomnia? I need help...

    As a teenager, I slept a lot. My family assumed it was normal. However, looking back, I would sleep 12-14 hours at times, never feeling rested. In my Early 20's.... I spent a lot of late nights partying and often didn't sleep but a few hours. For years, I equated my exhaustion with my life style. Now that I am in my 30's, I've become quite tame. I hardly drink alcohol and I entertain myself with house work. I have a great job and a wonderful wife. No kids and 3 cats. My exhaustion....

    I sleep far to deeply and I'm desperate for any hint of a solution

    I am a 28 year old man. For as long as I can remember, even before puberty, I have slept like the dead. My family has many stories of trying to wake me. We underwent multiple sleep studies, in both the hospital and the home, these were years ago but they came back as not sleep apnea. I generally wake rested (not every night but the average sleep ends with a good amount of energy for the day) If we fast forward to today and my relationship is in trouble due to this. I sleep through however many alarms....

    what's causing my red itchy hives?

    It started over the summer, one day randomly my body started breaking out in red itchy hives all over my arms and legs. At first my mom wondered if it could be chicken pocks but after I took a shower and changed my clothes they went away. then these hives started showing up every night in the middle of the night. I would go to sleep fine but at like 2-5 am I would wake up so itchy and covered in raised, not round, red hives. The only thing that would make them go away was taking a shower and giving....
