Get a ZEO

RJolicoeur posted:
I went to a sleep center & did 2 sleep studies. They diagnosed me with sleep apnea.

I purchased a ZEO (at home PSG sleep monitor) and an Oximeter. With these two at home diagnostic tools you can learn a lot about your sleep.

Turns out I didn't have Sleep Apnea. I have Narcolepsy with sleep onset REM, now properly diagnosed by a Nueologist.

Without the equipment mentioned above I would never have found the correct diagnosis. Doctor's can be wrong, always do as much research on your own as you can.

Dear RJolicoeur,

I am so glad you got a second opinion and a new diagnosis. I always encourage people to do that if they feel uncomfortable or question what's happening with their health care.

I appreciate your sharing your story and I hope others will find it inspiring.

Best wishes,

Byroney

I highly recommend the Zeo. I had been diagnosed with severe obstructive sleep apnea, had a UPPP, and sleep with a mouthpeice and noctornal oxygen to get me back to normal.

However I still didn't feel rested.

Turns out I was having a hard time staying asleep as a result of a combination hypoglycemia, GERD, bad sleeping hygine, and environmental factors. The metoformin cured part of that, so did prilosec once as day, as did earplugs, and better schedule maintainance.

The zeo played into that because it let me see what was working and what was not. There is something about having that detailed analysis every day and forming corelations.
