I posted here a long time ago (well, back in May-when you are sleeping terrible it seems like a VERY long time ago). Anyways, I am no longer seeing my initial sleep dr. anymore. He basically said, see you in a few months when he said it's normal for a sleep apnea patient using the CPAP machine & it being adequately treated to have EDS. I saw several doctors since then never thinking to see another Sleep Dr., until my new Rheumatologist referred me to a Dr. who is the greatest & genuinely cares!
The long of the short of it is this, I did the PSG & MSLT right after. The sleep tech said I had a "good night's study" after the PSG. I don't have any results yet. I slept all night b/c of a poor sleep the night before and I take ambien to sleep b/c since May I have been & it has been helping (hopefully when I get answers that this Dr. is searching for I will be off of it for good and get help with something else). He didn't have to adjust my CPAP at all & the pressure was right on. It got really hot in my room that is why I slept not so good at the end, but the tech said I definitely slept well.
Now, on to the MSLT. I slept 5 of the 5 naps (he verified this) and he said it took me less than 10 mins. to fall asleep each time. I definitely slept once and was jerking, but paralyzed to wake up. He thought I was dreaming when he reviewed it & said he would bring it to the doctor's attention, but I definitely wasn't dreaming exactly when that happened b/c it felt like I was awake having a seizure. The other 4 naps I may have dreamt in, but I don't remember & he didn't tell me anything else.
My doc is now on vacation & he will be reading my test. I have my exam on the 28th (SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO long from now), especially since my sleep seems to be getting worse by the day.
i have read a lot about results for the MSLT etc.... and was just curious if anyone here had a MSLT similar to mine? I am glad that whatever happened to me during nap 3 was recorded to make sure I didn't have a seizure, b/c I had a splitting headache when I woke up. I dreamt that the sleep tech saw what happened & came in the room & put the chest strap on me, which never happened. Like I said, I may have dreamt the other 4 naps, I was so exhausted though I don't remember, possibly total of 3-4 naps definitely dreaming. Any insight/experience with your results of your MSLT/diagnosis is appreciated to put my mind at ease until this appt.
