My sleep study results (are worthless to me).

So today I received a voicemail message from my doctor because she received the results back from my sleep study. And the results are . . . DRUM ROLL PLEASE . . .

. . . Everything is NORMAL in my sleep cycle!

I do not have sleep agnea or restless leg syndrome. She did say that the sleep specialist said, and I quote, "It probably has something to do with her previous Traumatic Brain Injury."

Talk about disappointment. I'm back to my own drawing board about my sleep disorder. Unless there is no cure for it. There is no quick fix. Maybe I just need to be even more religious about my sleep hygiene. I need to go to bed at the same time every night and eat healthy and exercise (not in the evening). I guess I'm kind of frustrated that there is no QUICK FIX for brain injury related anything.

Oh, I am so sorry! I hate to receive results that keep you guessing. Ken's doctor told him he had a Staph infections, they took two cultures- one to confirm what type of staph and one to also rule out streep. Then 5 days later the results came back and we were told that the results were "Negative", "Negative for what?" "Well, the doctor just said to tell you the results were Negative" We have no Idea what he actually had- if it was contagious or had any weird future side effects, all we know is that the cultures were "Negative"! Very Frustrating.
