I was prompted to get a sleep study by my urologist because I tend to have to get up to urinate 2-3 x per night. I had the initial exam at the sleep center and it only took a couple of minutes for them to recommend that I should get a sleep study done. They measured my neck and looked down my throat and asked me a few questions…and that was basically it. I don’t feel excessively sleepy during the day; as a matter of fact I can wake up rather easily in the morning. I do have low energy, my BP is a little high, I’m slightly overweight and in my 50’s. I also suffer from anxiety and depression. I do wake up frequently with very dry mouth and my wife says I snore a little (usually though, if I’ve had alcohol). My brother has it as well.

I suppose if I don’t feel like I’m going to fall asleep during the day that I’m just wasting my time getting the study done. Should I go ahead and schedule the study in your opinion? Thanks in advance!
