Outcome update. More later.
So the outcome of the appointment was pretty good. No respiratory issues at all, which was a big *whew*.
The study showed a substantial sleep disturbance, as expected. The doc thinks narcolepsy is what I’m looking at as I have two of the main markers: excessive daytime sleepiness and a very rapid transition into REM cycle sleep. Most people take about 90 minutes to enter REM and I would drop into within seconds of falling asleep. I do not have the cataplexy or paralysis that occurs often with narcolepsy but she said that the disorder presents differently in people. She’s treating me for naecolepsy and I have weekly follow up appts to see how the medication is working.
I’ll wrote more in depth info later as I’m out running errands now but wanted you guys to know I was ok.
Stay tuned. Thanks for all the love and support my wonderful blog land friends. Xox
