my mslt had only 1 sorem but since my avg. onset lat. was 2.18 minutes my doctor can justify prescribing my stimulants(in any amt.-it's a judgement call once dx is had-under standards of medical practice) and the rx is covered by insurance.
for this to be so with his starting xyrem-particularly the insurance part-there must be 2 or more sorems in my mslt. i'm thinking I should ask my md to order a 2nd mslt.
If I take a 2nd mslt and its - from me being too excited to fall asleep in the naps, does my first one still provide my md with a valid diagnosis of hypersomnia, or is it canceled out by the - 2nd mslt?
I actually do not think I won't fall asleep in the naps if I reapeat the mslt, but I didn't remain awake AT ALL in the intervals the first time around.
I think this could only have negated my somnolence as of the beginning of each nap. but i'd have to really get myself worked up to stay awake for 2 hours w/o having had meds for 2 weeks, after only 8 hours of sleep. might increase latencies in the test, I don't know.
