I was diagnosed with OSA in 2010 after years of being misdiagnosed as night time Asthma. Anyways I have very extensive severe chronic illness with 15 surgeries due to severe Crohn’s with neurological complications. Idiopathic Peritheal Neuropathy with significant weakness down the right side of my body. So many Co-morbidities.

Anyways Tuesday before Thanksgiving I had my 4th sleep studies. I have severe sleep disturbances and cpap alarm is going off multiple times a night to rouse me after 8years of cpap, Therapy. I can not sleep without it. I know something serious is really going on.

Anyways the tech said very serious issues and a lot of information recorded. No mask, he said could not split the night and most likely my next set of tests will not be in a clinic setting. He was upset because things should have been diagnosed or found sooner. I changed labs and sleep specialist this time because I did not get much help with mine in 2015. Luckily the sleep specialist and my pcp take these things very seriously.

He said report will be a quick turn around and my doctor should have report in 3 business days. He put it STAT. I should hopefully know more by Wednesday this week. I just so badly need to sleep. I am lucky to get 2 a night. I know it is either my heart or brain malfunctioning and it is scary.
