4 years ago I was diagnosed with severe sleep apnea with 365 arousals nightly with oxygen deprivation to 81%. I was a 28 year old fairly healthy male with huge tonsils, deviated septum, and a bad soft palate. I had septum, UPPP, and tonsil surgery.
3 years ago follow-up sleep study showed problem completely solved, but I still would wake 1-2 x to use the bathroom. However, this was a dramatic improvement from the past 4-6x. I felt like I was getting better, if not rested sleep.
Oct. 2009 injury to nose resulted in another septum/turbinate reduction with follow-up sleep study. Sleep study shows no need for cpap, but I'm still using the bathroom 1-4x a night which is disruptive to say the least. I actually use the restroom more frequently than most during the day. Night rising to use the restroom is a clear indication of sleep issues as most people on here know already. I’m still tired a lot, suffer with concentration and memory issues, and struggle with weight gain. Any ideas on what could be missing, I feel like something is being missed.
One other interesting side note, I used over the counter nose spray one night, which really opened up my sinuses. I slept through the entire night for the first time in 12 years, no exaggeration (it’s too bad that stuff is bad for you). I did not wake to use the restroom at all. I need to get this type of sleep regularly.
I'm really at wits end here, as for most on here I feel like I'm battling for my health. Now I've had a second sleep study with no measurable problems. People don't think it's an issue, but believe me it is. Any help would be very appreciated!
