Not all the test results are in yet, I should know more in about10 days...
The results I did receive revealed that I quit breathing about 50 times an hour...
from 1 to 3 minutes...the most likely causing of my morning migraines...
Their still not sure what is causing the evening migraines.
Who would of known...that migraines are caused from a lack of oxygen?
They said that morning migraines are the leading symptom of sleep apnea,
second is chronic fatigue, and Fibromyalgia...hummmm.
What they don't know is what causes sleep apena.
They also said most people don't even know they have it...
So that's all I know so far...But it's a start.
I came home with a lovely new addition, my pink new friend...lol..
She's so quite, you can hardly tell she's here, but she keeps me breathing.
She even has a computer and can tell how many times I quit breathing throughout the night;
How long I sleep and how long in between sleeps...
She can also tell if I'm being a good compliant little girl...lol
She can even send an alarm to the company and let them know if I've stopped breathing
resulting in a phone call to wake my behind up....
So I guess I'd have to say she pretty important in my life.
I am soooo grateful to have some answers to at least one of my medical conditions.
For any of you who experience more then 1 migraine a week please let your doctor know,
and ask them if you could be experiencing sleep apnea.
what I didn't realize is how serious quitting breathing really is,
and that it could effect virtually anyone, at any weight, at any age.
Every night my brain was deprived of oxygen,
I was just lucky enough to start breathing again on my own, that's not always true for some.
The studies show that sleep apena is the cause of many deaths...
I'm not fond of my new pink additon, and I'm sure it's going to take some getting use to,
but if it means I might start feeling even a little bit better, I'm sure going to give it a try.
Thank you all sooo much for your love and support,
all your phone calls, emails and well wishes.
You all mean the world to me,
I'm so blessed to have you in my life,
I'm so blessed to have such an amazing team of medical staff
who are bound and determined to get me well
Peace, Love and Blessings to all of you!
