I have been sleeping terrible, waking up every couple of hours most nights for at least months. Is this happening to other people to? Last night, the 3rd or 4th time I woke up, my oxygen tube had fallen out-I was very short of breathe, set up and used my oxymeter. My oxygen level was at 65% and I am sure that it had gone up because I was breathing hard. This started me to think harder and ask myself questions. I know your saturation level should not go below 90% but when you sleep you breathe slower and you heart slows. Should your oxygen level stay the same or does it go down some to? Tonight I am going to try to find a face mask to use. Maybe when I get into a deep sleep it is as simple as starting to breathe through my mouth instead of my nose? My Father-in-Law has sleep apnea so I know a bit about it. I dont think that is the problem, but who knows? If we are having sleeping problems do we need to turn up our oxygen level at night to compensate for our breathing being more shallow to keep ample oxygen in our system? I will not do anything like that until I talk to my Doctor! What are your thoughts on this? Come on-Penny for your thoughts!
