It is official. I got the results back from my "sleep study." I have sleep apnea.
Apparently I quit breathing up to 11 times an hour. This is turn causes my adrenaline to kick into overdrive to "pull me out" of this state, and then heart races, the blood pressure rises - and boom.
So - with the theme of our Go Red For Women campaign - Speak Up to Save Lives - I want each of you to talk to your doctor if you snore. Simple as that.
I have to return to the Lakeshore sleep clinic for another sleep study. Damn it.
They will be hooking up a CPAP machine and measuring the amount of pressure needed to keep me breathing.
Then, I suppose, I will be walking away with one of these handy dandy things.
I am not sure what I think about it.
I will fill you in Wednesday.
Until then.. happy snores... :-)
