    Sleep Apnea: CPAP or dental appliance?

    Hey everyone, I am suffering from sleep apnea. My wife complained that I used to snore in the midnight with very loud noise and I used to wake up in the midnight. I went to my family doctor who suggested undergoing Nocturnal polysomnography. I was not knowing what it was. As per doctor's proposal, I have undergone the test in which I was hooked up to equipment that monitors your heart, lung and brain activity, breathing patterns, arm and leg movements, and blood oxygen levels while you sleep....

    Can't sleep

    I have been struggling with falling asleep at all. I have resorted to taking prescription zolpidem( ambian generic) but really would like to know what the underlying issue is. I did a sleep study but they said I had mild sleep apnea but not needing a machine yet. Really don't want one anyways! lol However, I feel like I never hit that deep sleep and my brain just will not shut off and never wake up feeling rested. Anyone have any ideas? I have tried natural and over the counter with no luck.

    Anyone please

    Hello, I am 30 years old now.... there has been a drastic change in my sleep.

    New Here

    Hi! I'm new to these boards so I'm trying out all the ones that relate to me and saying hello. I have sleep apnea and fibromyalgia and between the two it feels like I'm exhausted constantly! Then for a few days a month it gets even worse and I barely do anything but sleep for those days! It's awful! Any suggestions?

    How long does it take to get results from a sleep study?

    Just got myself a sleep study, great! Made an appointment to see the specialist to go over the results. I ask for the earliest opening. I am scheduled to talk to the specialist 106 days after the sleep study. Is this an average wait?

    I seriously can't wake up

    I am still in high school and its very important for me to wake up at a certain time, but no matter what I do I still cannot wake up. I go to sleep every night at least by 10:45 at the latest. The only medicines I take at all are Vyvanse (A.k.a. lisdexamfetamine 40ml) in the morning when I'm leaving for school and Lexapro (A.k.a. escitalopram 20ml) after I eat dinner (normally around 7:30). I have been taking these medications for almost half a year now and they have never made me have a problem....

    Always sleepy.

    I use to be extremely athletic and only needed about 6 hours per days to function extremely well. I was able fall asleep at night. Never drank any energy drinks or take adderall.

Now, energy drinks do not work well. I wake up at night and have natural energy no matter how sleepy I was during the day. Even the days I do not....
