It was something the Sleep Doc said
Saturday, August 31, 2013
I was surprised when she said that I was a candidate for sleep apnea because I don't snore or gasp according to my husband. But she pointed out that I tend to breathe through my mouth. And I tend to wake up with a dry throat and I'm most congested at night. That got me thinking - no animals get on my bed or bedding but I sleep on a futon on the floor. The carpet is a veritable haven for dust mites, dog and cat hair and dander etc. What if I am not sleeping because I'm allergic? I took Allegra last night and slept much better. I may still have sleep apnea. A sleep study will show if I am or not. I'm going to look today for some kind of a dust mite proof ground sheet to put under my futon today to see if something like that would help even more.
