so, i had my sleep test last night. other than being hooked up to something like 27 wires all over my body, it was a pretty typical night. the test went from 9 PM to 6 AM. By the time they hooked me up, it was about 10. So, off to bed I went at 10 PM, wide awake and full of energy.
I couldn’t get comfortable and ended up rolling around until about 2:30, wishing i could read a book or something. I think I slept a few minutes at a time and then woke up for longer periods throughout. It was hard to shut my mind off. And everytime I moved, it seemed I unhooked one of the wires. I kept the poor nurse busy, that’s for sure. She came in about 10 times that i remember, and probably more than that.
the room was cold, but I’m grateful they had a space heater. hurray! about 2:30 AM, i gave up trying to get comfortable on my side and finally fell asleep on my back with my legs propped up on two pillows. i was having a hard time breathing and kept thinking there was a cat in the room. my eyes, nose and mouth were extremely dry. i remember dreaming and I think it was about work.
at 5 or so, the nurse woke me up. so, not much sleep last night for me, but honestly i feel about like on any other normal day. tired, sleepy, ready to go back to bed, but functioning.
i go back to the doctor on December 4th for the test results.
i haven’t had a migraine since Sunday. God is so kind to grant some relief there because its been a very stressful busy thought-filled week at work.
