I wonder if I have sleep apnea. Am 69 yo. Have emphysema, on 02 for 7 years at 3litres 24/7. I only sleep about 3 hours at a time, awaken and often can't return to sleep. Sometimes, sleep days and sometimes, nights, but never more than 3 hrs. This has been going on for almost a year. Pulmonary dr. gave me Ambien, but it didn't work. I take anxiety meds. Also on Spiriva, Symbicort and Duoneb. Does anyone also have sleep apnea? I am sure my dr would order a sleep study if I asked. Some nights I don't sleep at all, then sleep throughout the next day. I've become less active, staying home, not knowing when I will get sleepy. If I don't sleep at night, what can a sleep study at night tell us? Need advice,please. Thank you.
