Good night?

Filed under: CPAP, fibro, fibromyalgia, FMS, health, life, sleep — Wizus @ 3:55 pm

My doctor had me participate in a sleep study last night. This is where you go to a sleep “lab”, you get hooked up to a million sensors, the tech tucks you in and then goes to another room where he can watch you on a video monitor. Needless to say, I did not get much sleep last night.  😛

Tonight I get to start on a new medication, which ironically is the stuff I was going to test in the Rx study. The dr. says it is better that I am not in the study because he can prescribe a better dose for me, and I know I am not getting the placebo. He wrote a letter to my insurance co. and they are going to cover the costs even though the drug hasn’t been approved for treating fibro.

I won’t know what the results of the sleep study are until I hear from the dr, but I hope this med will have me feeling better very soon.
