Ever hear of anyone who had a sleep study and pass??
I made the mistake of answering a question wrong at a Dr’s appointment well that got me prescribed a sleep study unfortunately the wife at the time thought it was a great idea. Of course on the first sleep study I did something wrong so they had to repeat it. I failed the second one so here we go CPAP time. I slept like crap with it. Complained to the sleep specialist how bad the mask leaked got positively no where The stupid thing is linked to the cloud so it reports to my insurance how often I wore it and I had to have it on for 6 hours for 45 consecutive days or they didn’t pay. I haven’t worn it once since I cleared the insurance hurdle. Woke up with a dried out mouth, nose, and eyes the wife was crabby because as she said it was like having a leaking tire hissing in bed all night.
It’s a scam don’t do it!!!
Moron “sleep specialist “ milked the insurance for a CPAP I don’t have sleep apnea I have periodic limb movement disorder even family doc agrees I have limb movement. She won’t prescribe anything because the cure is worse than the illness. I flop around in bed the same without a CPAP as with one.
I took a study over 10 years ago and passed. Two years ago I had progressed to the point I need a machine. I have what is called a BIPAP machine. It monitors your breathing and reduces the pressure when you exhale. Also has adjustable heat and humidity.
