I didn't Want to Know
I saw my new neurologist Friday. None of the news was very welcomed. I am still not on any meds for my neurological problems. He said I have mitochondrial level disease that can only be treated by symptoms. He order a sleep study for last night because sleep apnea can make the neurological problems worse and he can treat sleep apnea. The Dad and the girls dropped me off a little after eight last night. I was hooked up to monitors using a lot of wires and some sticky stuff. They came in to adjust wires and connectors often and it seemed like it took me forever to fall asleep. I was suppose to wait to hear from the doctor, but the nice technician let me look at the raw results. I have sleep apnea (no surprise), but I wasn't expecting to see that my oxygen saturation levels dipped below sixty percent on four different occasions. I was so tired when I got home that I took a four hour nap. Next step is to go for calibration. Right now, I have two little girls who want to be right next to me.
