Several things made me talk to my doctor - mostly so tired during the day I had no energy. There are some afternoons that I am so exhausted that I can't stay awake. It's beyond the lack of energy that comes from depression.
Some reasons my doctor ordered the test: I snore, wake up occasionally with a panicked feeling, I'm overweight, and I am diabetic, in addition to the tiredness.
Like I said, I don't have the full results, so I don't know how many episodes I had per hour.
"The stress thing" keeps me from falling asleep while I toss and turn, but doesn't impact me when it comes to staying asleep.
For awhile I was using caffeine to stay awake, but I have slowly gone off of caffeine for other health reasons ... I'm down to ONE regular soda a week - on Sunday Mornings.
Hey, if I
fall asleep during the sermon - that would be BAD.
