I never feel like I get enough sleep. 8, 9, 10 hours… I’ll get up but I still feel like I need more. I fall asleep easily and wake up zero or once per night-- sounds good right? But it’s not enough . I snore if I sleep on my back so I sleep on my side. My energy during the day is low and I always feel like I want a nap. A nap will usually help for a little while. I exercise regularly and it helps a bit but not enough. I am not overweight. I don’t have narcolepsy.-- I never spontaneously fall asleep during the day.
About 10 years ago I had a sleep study. They said I had mild sleep apnea but declared I needed no treatment. I think perhaps they were wrong about that – maybe something should be done. . I am not enthused about having another sleep study. (It was expensive, and honestly-- kind of creepy having people watch you sleep). I read about the Theravent nose patches that are a non-prescription version of another therapy (Provent) that is used for sleep apnea. I am interested in trying it before I go back to the sleep doctor.
Has anyone tried Theravent?
