    Going in for Sleep Apnea test

    I've slept like shit for as long as I can remember. Wake up in the middle of the night almost every night either to take a piss or drink water. Would wake up from any noise. I've just always accepted it as I'm a light sleeper. Recently went to the doctor due to extreme fatigue and exhaustion. I was convinced it was either adrenal fatigue or possibly high cortisol levels. Labs came back today, and everything looks good. So next week I'm scheduled to take the sleep apnea test.

    I've already decided that I will NOT wear a Darth Vader mask. I know some ppl wear it, but I don't think I could sleep with anything on my head/face. The other option is surgery. Not a big fan, but my brother had the procedure done about 10 years ago and he sleeps much better now. He snored really bad and they removed his adnoids, uvula and tonsils. His advice was to opt for the surgery.

    I know a couple of vets have sleep apnea, maybe they can chime in.

    I have it too. Been putting off fo going to the doctor and having the sleep test for fear it's going to cost too Damn much.

    Curious about experiences

    I also wake up in the middle of the night to take a piss 2 or 3 times and I feel a bit tired during the day. When I eat light dinner at least 3 hours before the bed, I don't wake up most of the time.
    I also snort like hell driving my wife crazy. I just start using a mouthpiece to get rid of the snort and my wife said I don't short at all or much less. The mouthpiece is made by Zquiet.

    the jack had the uvula, adnoids and tonsils thing done/removed.
    he didn't snore for about 6 mths but he still had apnea...

    now hes back to snoring like crazy (makes me insane), and can't roll his r's which means he can't purr or nail the accent for spanish, french or italian...

    his cpap was destroyed ibn the house fire and we've never gotten health ins to replace it...stupid thing is like 3grnd out of pocket

    Get a couple bricks (books, 3" stilettos lol, etc) and put it under the headboard. You want your head about 4" higher than your feet. The incline does about the same thing as the zguard, which is also a good idea.
    lastly- Xanax much? Stuff knocks me out and I wake up feeling great.

    added the Xanax part in case you are just a light sleeper- probably wont help apnea.

    I was given a test machine to use at my house for a night to determine if I had it. So many dam wires on it I couldn't sleep anyway. They determined that I needed the machine and I declined to take it cause there was no way I could sleep with a mask on my face connected to a bunch of hoses and wires.

    Never tried xanax. Just OTC sleeping aids that always make me groggy. Same with benadryl.

    I refuse to use Benadryl period. I hate everything diphenhydramine.

    They say those things at first are hard to sleep worth but I guess you get used to it. Know a couple guys that use them.

    I know squat about a C pap, but seems like you can get them for a couple hundred dollars. Just googled- maybe these are junk?

    I had the sleep apnea test about 10yrs ago. Slept overnight at a local sleep center. What sucked is I had wires all over me which is common, I couldn't jackoff as they were watching me on tv monitors and they turned my tv off at 9PM. It just sucked lol.
    I wasnt going to do the mask either.
    I started changing up my diet around and getting in a diff sleep pattern.
    Im ok now but not going to do any type of surgery for apnea.

    This is something not to mess with.....I am in the same boat you are. My wife tells me I quit breathing in the middle of the night and she waits for me to start breathing again. I wake up 3-4 times a night also, but it may be your body waking you up! I've done the test and waiting for results....BTW, had a person I knew die in his sleep from this.
