Make sure you find out from your insurance company whether or not this is covered. Both my doctor and the company that provided the equipment led me to believe that it would be. I told them that I was concerned about costs and they said that they would check with the insurance company. All they checked was to make sure that there was no co-pay, not whether or not it was covered. After a generous “discount” I ended up paying $700 for the privilege of knowing I do not have sleep apnea. Certainly my fault for not checking with insurance first, but don’t let them fool you into thinking it’s not necessary.
As for other sleep issues, I have been having some trouble the past few nights. I took two Benadryl (as suggested upthread) and felt like I would fall asleep easily, but instead I had earworms, restless legs and what felt like waking fever dreams. I got up a few times, but each time as soon as I was on my feet I felt supremely groggy and had to go lie down again. Finally fell asleep after several hours of this, which is better than the night before, when I took nothing, but for the first couple hours it was a no-win situation. I haven’t been exercising regularly lately, and I know that when I do I generally don’t have problems, so I’ll be getting back on the treadmill tonight for sure.
