We can sleep 18 hours a day
We dose off while eating,
While talking to people
Sometimes nodding off while driving
While standing in line
We nod off at work.
While sitting in a waiting room
Nodding off at a restaurant or bar
Sound like something you do ? Well I know I have done all these things. The only reason I got a Sleep test was because my husband said I was snoring very loud. Sometimes I would gag and sometimes even stop breathing. I had nightmares of
A weight on my chest
Somebody holding a hand over my mouth
Being buried alive
Somebody sitting on my chest
Sometimes in winter I would kick all the blankets off even if I was cold. I did that because I rather be cold then feel the weight of the blankets on me. Yes very scary feeling. My husband was getting no sleep as he was afraid I would stop breathing in my sleep and not wake up. So I mentioned this to my new doctor, who by the way let me try Amour. He suggested the sleep test.. I had it done the week before my cancer surgery. I am glad I did as I now know I needed it. AS you all know I now wear a CPAP mask to sleep at night. I also have oxygen during the day. As much as I hate having to wear the CPAP and oxygen ...I have to admit it has helped me. I breath better I feel better and I do not dose off during the day. Even recovering from surgery I feel like I have more energy and not feeling so dopy. A few others I have talked to that are now on a CPAP or just oxygen have told me the same thing. They feel so much better. Soooooo.....maybe we just need more oxygen. It would not hurt to talk to your doctor about it. We all know we end up with something else once we have a thyroid disease. Maybe just maybe this is one of them.
