Kc, I have never had one but I have heard that they do hook you up to a bunch of wires. My mom just had one done and she said it really was not all that bad. Good luck, hey look at it this way, if you don't sleep good tonight, you can sleep tomorrow.

Yeah, I got a sleep study done a few weeks ago...really funky experience. All this stuff on your face, in your hair on your body. Then they hook you up and turn off the lights and you can't move well. Plus, you just lay there. If you can't sleep, you aren't allowed to get up or anything. you must stay right there and just deal. I kept on having the girl come unhook me so I could go to the bathroom and I had an ambien from my doctor to sleep. I got 6 hours and woke up in agonizing pain and finally went home at 5 am. I put a picture of what I looked like on my facebook page to show all my friends...I will see if I can upload it here

Okay, if you click on me, you will see on my page, a picture of me all hooked up the night of my sleep study. I think I might go out like that on Halloween. It wasn't really comfy at night but when you sleep like we do anyways, what is the difference!

Oh Monika you look so very unhappy in that pic. Honestly, it does not look like fun Sad I have sleep issues all of my life and never thought to do a study. Just kinda how I am built I think.

Poor Bug is right! I wish I'd thought of taking a camera for pics, lol!

For the uninitiated, sleep studies are pure torture Wink

Study hugs, Tina
