    Hi Jakota, welcome to the board. I am sorry, I must have missed your original post! I do try to welcome everyone that is new, but sometimes I miss someone or I am not on the board.

    No, I don't know anything about sleep studies, especially at home. I solved my sleeping problem with ZMA (zinc, magnesium and vitaminB-6).
    I am now sleeping 7-8 hours a night without waking up, should I wake up for the bathroom, I go right back to sleep. I have been taking this supplement now for one year. I saw results in about 10 days after starting it.

    You might want to ask your doctor about it first. You can read about it here at Pro Health, just go to the 'Store' link, they have a good write up on it.

    I like you name, its unusual! Does it have a special meaning?

    I am sorry you have not gotten any replies, our members are usually quick at responding to our new members.

    Good to have you join us, and I do hope you forgive us this time, and stay around. We do have some great friendly people here.

    Again, welcome to our world!

    Shalom, Shirl

    My husband just had one done at home. Really simple, had a small computer like thing and a hose in his nostrils, small hose like used for oxygen. Could of hit him because he slept like a baby that night instead of his usual snoring and tossing and turning. Results? He failed it!!!! Waiting for appointment to get c-pap machine.

    My husband, my son, and I all had sleep studies done at home. My husband has sleep apnea, but my son's study and my study came back normal. Interestingly, all three of us also wear an NTI device when we sleep. I wear it for TMJ problems. My husband and son have been wearing them because of bruxism.

    Our dentist is a specialist in TMJ and recently has started branching out into dealing with sleep problems. He has a computer setup that helps analyze the airway opening and provide guidance in building up an NTI device to open the mouth more so that the airway stays open. Ever since Neil started using the modified NTI device, he has been breathing better, sleeping better (and more deeply), and his snoring has almost disappeared! He's going to take another sleep test at home while wearing the NTI device to see whether that confirms what we've both observed. I think the NTI may need a littl more adjustment, as recently, I've heard him gasping for breath again every once in awhile. But this is nothing like the way it used to be. This may just be a new option for people with sleep apnea.

    Unfortunately, my sleep problems seem to be caused by something else. So I guess I just have to keep flailing around and trying different things in hopes that something will help me get some decent Stage 4 sleep.
