    I recently had a sleep study ordered by a pulmonologist for sleep apnea. He is only interested in the respiratory
    portion of my study.
    My question is this: Who do I see to evaluate this study from a FM standpoint?
    I have 0% Delta sleep and 0.3% Alpha sleep.
    Guess who's always tired? LOL
    I have FM, Hepatitis C and depression.

    for the same reason you did. Because I didn't have sleep apnea he wrote a report saying I had a normal study. He did mention that I had no non-rem sleep, which I think I read somewhere has something to do with your body repairing the muscles, tendons, etc. Also, like one of the specialists at the fibro clinic told me, one night of sleep study doesn't mean that is how you sleep every night.
