Sleep Apnea and Sleep Clinics
About a months ago, I began to start having trouble taking deep breaths along with severe coughing, usually during the night. Having been in H/A long enough, I ended up going to see a doctor, who ran some tests, and then referred me to a pulmonologist.
Saw him last Friday, and he diagnosed me with Asthma and told me my lungs were slightly underdeveloped. He gave me some medicine and an inhaler, and that has made a world of difference-so far it's cleared up all my issues.
While I was there however, he also said I should visit a sleep clinic, because I might have sleep apnea. Now, here's the thing, I never mentioned to him that I had any issues sleeping, and the symptoms he mention don't really seem to apply to me. It feels like he saw that I was overweight, and based a lot of it on that, as he didn't run any tests or anything like that.
Seeing as my insurance will not fully cover the clinic, leaving me with a 250 payment, I'm trying to decide if I shoudl go. The other thing is that I need to do the sleep clinic in order to have a follow up with the doctor, which maybe it's just my distrust of doctors in general, but doesn't feel right.
I guess my quesiton is that if Sleep Apnea could be something I have and never really noticed. He mentioned being sleepy during the day time, which yeah, I sometimes get, but I usually don't get a full 8 hours of sleep-more like six really. And it's not like I have trouble falling sleep, or anything..
