I did my sleep study last night. They told me I didn't snore.
WTF??? I didn't snore? Then why did I waste all this time and money, and now I'm tired AF.

She did tell me that I had almost no REM sleep, which could help explain why I am tired all the time. The doctor will look at it and call me. I bet they make me do it again.

You didn't ask the female to crawl in bed with you? That is just like happy endings at parlors -- you have to know how to play this.

Sounds like you need to learn how to snore.

Do you usually snore?

Maybe you have a different type of sleep disorder

Did they monitor your bird of prey?

If not, test not valid.

Worth the money just to be able to throw it back in your wife's face that you don't snore.

Did they not see anything right before a REM stage should have started like an apnea episode that stopped you from going into REM sleep or during REM getting you out quicker?

Your wife told you that you snore so you would have to sleep on the couch while she "Snapchatted me dat pussy".

That's actually reassuring because I have been thinking the sleep apnea industry is becoming a borderline scam meant to scare everyone into buying a CPAP.

Sleep apnea doesn't always come with snoring. It's the periods where you stop breathing that are the danger, and hinder your sleep. You may not have snored, but read your study. How many apnea episodes did you have? What was the lowest that your oxygen level dipped to? Those are the things you should look at. Snoring or not really doesn't matter.

I don't snore either. I do have sleep apnea but it's "Central" sleep apnea. LINK My brain basically has trouble telling my body to breathe like it should.

I've had this since I was in the Army and weighed 167 pounds. This type of sleep apnea has nothing to do with size. There are two types, obstructive and central. If you have central, you won't snore but will stop breathing. If you are married ask your wife, she will know. Before I was diagnosed it used to freak my wife out when I stopped breathing. If you do have it, get treated, it will kill you.

If you let it progress it will manifest itself elsewhere. I've had heart surgery for AFIB and will likely have it again at some point in the future. I have to use a CPAP or I feel horrible.

The first time I did one, I couldn't sleep at all with all that crap attached to my head. I probably slept 30 minutes. In the morning the lady says "you didn't sleep? Why didn't you ask for an ambien?" Well lady, because you forgot to mention that it was ok to take an ambien for the test. I went back, did it again, took ambien and slept all night. I snored like a mofo. I got a cpap and it was a game changer. I sleep 10x better.

Long story short.... take it again while on ambien.

So question....I have sleep apnea (about 26 episodes per hour, considered moderate to severe). I snore like a mofo. However, I'm not a "heavy person." I do not in any way feel tired or exhibit any of the normal apnea symptoms; in fact, we figured it out by chance. I have a CPAP and use it as much as I can (finally found a good mask that I like and is comfortable). That said, it's after using the CPAP machine each morning that I feel, for lack of a better way of putting it, "oxygen starved." Like I haven't been getting enough during my sleep USING the CPAP. Anyone have a clue why this would be?

2 things.

1. Your CPAP should bel variable pressure to adjust to your breathing. If it’s not, request one that is.

2. Your CPAP should have a memory card, take it to your sleep doctor and have them take a look. They can read your sleep patterns and make necessary changes.

Hope this helps.

Yes, it is variable pressure. It’s crazy because when you test it and it goes up to 10 or 11 while awake, you feel like you can’t breath. But when you’re asleep, thats the level gets up to (for me, anyway).

As for the memory card, it also transmits the data over WiFi. But they have seen it (we review during my visits) and the data always looks normal. It’s synced to an app on my phone as well, and that also looks good.

I’m kinda stumped.

I don't think I have ever heard of anyone doing a sleep study that did not get recommended a CPAP...
