Jon and I have pondered whether or not I have sleep apnea for a few years. One night last week I really gave Jon a scare. He kept having to wake me up so I would start breathing again. So, he told me to set up an appointment with our family doctor and I did. I REALLY don't like going to the doctor. I usually just deal with whatever is bothering me and/or try home or OTC remedies.
Thursday evening at our Life Group meeting we asked our group to pray for the appointment to go well. It did.
My mom took the children with her to visit relatives who were in from GA on Friday. That way, Jon could go to the appointment with me.
So, here are the results of that appointment:
1. I'm on antibiotics for ten days for my sinus infection.
2. I'm now taking allergy medicine (nose spray).
3. I have an appointment in August for a consultation with a Dr. for a sleep study.
The allergy medicine makes my headaches worse. I couldn't even sleep Friday night, because my headache was so bad. If the headaches don't start improving I'll have to call the Dr. I already have a terrible time with several different types of headache and I don't need another type. The information with the medicine actually says to call my doctor if I get a headache from it, but since it's the weekend I can't. My symptoms have gotten worse since I started taking the medicine, but apparently that's normal for the first few days.
Hopefully, I'll be on the mend soon.
Have a great day everyone!
