Waiting for Sleep Study

Last updated: May 2021

I have had daytime sleepiness for at least 6 months and it seemed to come on quickly. The other day, after 8 hours of sleep, I slept a total of 20 hours off and on. I went back to bed at 8:30 and slept about 5 hours. I would just like a great 8 hours of sleep and be awake all day. This started after being diagnosed with RA. I can't wait for a sleep study next week. A home study said I stopped breathing every 5 minutes so I guess I am not sleeping at all.

Did anyone else experience daytime sleepiness before your sleep study?
