Sleep Apnea? How do you go about getting tested..
« on: March 23, 2017, 02:09:17 PM »
I used to get a semi/decent amount of sleep, but I used to be on a pretty heavy cocktail of medications: benzo, traZadone, pain medication. It was literally knocking me out so hard I failed to dream for months at time, or in the chance I did dream-trying to recall (said) dream...let's just say they became highly malleable even for a dream. So, I finally tossed all the medications, but now my body is being taxed with hardly any sleep...maybe 3.5 hours a night, combined. I usually wake up 3-4 time to empty a bladder that's not even 1/3 full. I'm constantly contested. Chest pain. Dizzy spells. Fatigue. I've been under the impression that maybe I had chronic fatigue syndrome, or some other varying degree of an auto immune disorder. Now I'm starting to think sleep apnea is responsible. Completely changed my diet, no medications for 4 months (+). Why else would I not be sleeping?? Frustrating. I take like 45 mg of xrl melatonin hour before bed, still horrible sleep no matter the dose.
I wake up coughing up some seriously thick stuff. Anyone relate, even remotely? 😆😆

JigJaw : 45 mg of melatonin is huge !!!!!!!!!!
I take 1,75 mg before sleeping and it work well BUT you have to choose a elatonin which is diffusing progressivly.
I've tried others which didn't and it didn't work at all.

Forget benzo and others drugs, it lead to early wakes-up and mess with your brain and your mood.

If melatonin still don't work, I advice you to add hawtorn, valerian, camomilla....

Do you sleep with several pillows ? Do you have a CPAP ?  Did you ever test your sleep apnea at hospital ?
