I can’t believe how long it takes to talk to your doctor about sleep issues, then get referred to another doctor, get on their calendar, have them order an at home sleep test, wait for it to be shipped, test for two nights, have a problem and wait for a replacement part, test for two more nights, ship it back, wait for results, test failed, wait for new device, test for two more nights, ship it back, wait for results, doctor says nothing abnormal was found, then have an overnight lab ordered, wait for them to get the request, then they need several days to get an authorization from insurance, call you to schedule to lab, wait for the lab, wait for results, then schedule with doctor again to go over results. Nothing abnormal found. Go do bloodwork. Wait for results. Schedule to go over results, nothing found.

Then I meet with doctor again to go over bloodwork and I mention the audio recordings I got of myself waking myself up snoring using an app on my iPhone. He hears the audio and immediately prescribed me a CPAP due to suspicion of UARS.

Almost 7 weeks to this point.

I’m so tired. Please please please work!
