Has anyone ever gotten a sleep study done?


Did it reveal any issues? Do you sleep better now? what was the actual experience like? Were you able to fall asleep?


I'm probably going to have a sleep study done and I was just wondering how it went for people. I feel like I wouldn't be able to fall asleep because I would have all those wires hooked up to me.



Also, what different things can a sleep study identify? Can it identify MORE than just how often you wake up during the night?


Thanks for any info!

This is a better question to ask the sleep center

Oh I plan to... but I would also like to hear people's actual experience so nothing is sugar coated.

My 3yo did fine. It detects apnea, depth of sleep, frequency of waking up and lengths of each sleep cycle, etc.

Also, google is your friend.

They give you a sleeping pill (ambien) to make sure you are sleeping. I've had one done and that's how it's done.
They can only diagnose sleep apnea, whether you have it or not. Stop worrying about it. You will fall asleep and you will be diagnosed. The end.

I had a sleep study around 10 years ago and it was not a good experience. I don't think I slept at all. The wires were a problem. In addition, I was cold and there was bright light coming under the door to the room. They said I didn't have sleep apnea. My wife, who is a CRNP is convince I have sleep apnea and it is causing my blood pressure to rise.

Seriously? They give you sleeping medication to determine how and how well you sleep? Doesn't Ambien potentially impact your sleep behavior?

Apnea will manifest itself regardless of the mechanism by which you fall asleep. Use of a sleeping aid is very common in a sleep study.


The study isn't really about "sleep behavior" but rather how you breath while asleep.

No... sleep studies look at more than just apnea. And my daughter did not take medication.

OP, seems like you'd be better off with Google because the answers here are bonkers.
