really odd question, thanks for hearing me out.

I’m pretty sure I have sleep apnea at the moment due to other issues. I have a severe deviated septum and a growth that is blocking my airway in my throat.

I’ve been sleeping a ton lately, presumably because I’m not actually sleeping at night. I’ve woken up a few times to my dog barking, probably because I stopped breathing (she has only barked like, a handful of times in the year I’ve had her — not normal behavior for her). I’ve seen a sleep doctor in the past but I never got around to doing the study.

I’m wondering if anyone has gotten one without a study being done? It seems like a waste of time right now when I’m so miserable. I do worry about actually suffocating before we can deal with my throat and nose due to COVID :/

Thank you!

Edit: I ain’t trying to do sketchy shit. I have a sleep doctor. I just don’t want to wait for a study since they usually take up to a year here and ya girl gonna suffocate before that. I was just wondering if anyone’s doctor has prescribed them without doing a full study.
