It's been 4 years since my first sleep study and about 3 years since my last one.
I've not been too happy with my sleep quality recently and my doctor is also wondering if my sleep has been responsible for my being sick more often (with yesterday's cold it's now 3 times in 8 weeks again).
After doing a take at home sleep study which confirmed that my sleep appliance that moves my bottom jaw forward when I sleep is actually helping, but we're not sure whether it's helping enough, or not.
We however decided to do another real sleep study at Stanford to get better data and an professional opinion. The location changed from Stanford to Redwood city, but the equipment is pretty much the same:
this forces my bottom jaw forward when I sleep and opens my airway better, helping sleep apnea
Needless to say that it's not that easy to sleep with all this stuff. I slept close to 8H which is impressive, but had a pretty bad sleep quality and feel like crap today :)
I'll know in 2 weeks or so the results and recommendations.
