So I went through the sleep study at Sa’ad Hospital (red sheets, Saudi nurse with full head covering getting me hooked up for bed). Now I have spent two nights on my new CPAC machine.
The first night I slept for eight hours, without even a break for the bathroom. I cannot recall the last time I did that. I woke up about two minutes before the alarm, always a sign of a good sleep. I have to admit I still yawned through my day.
After two nights, no more mild headache, no more yawns. All in all, I am a little embarrassed to need a machine just to sleep, but I can see a real improvement.
What I need now is a CPAC with a built-in clock radio and telephone charger.
