I am sitting here typing at 3:00 because I cannot sleep. And i am reading all of these posts about sleep disorders and I am wondering why the medical community is so out of touch with this area of medicin e. Breathing is pretty basic to life. Everyone who posts on this web site has trouble breathing. WHY can they not be more knowledgable to help people? How many people probably die from a side effect of thid conditionevery year?
I have had 2 sleep studies and both say no sleep apnea. Just upper airway resistance syndrome whatever that m,eans. All it has meant to me so far is my insurance wont pay for any of the possible treatments because my o2 level is not low enough when I have episodes. What is low enough. I havent slept well for four years. I now have heart palpatations that are probably form the sleep deprivation I have been experiencing. What is next for me.
I just dont understand why no Dr can help me. 2 sleep specialists and 2 pulmonologists and still nothing.
