I have had a Cat scan and an MRI on the brain which both came back normal and a sleep study test twice. Once three years ago. They couldn't figure out what was wrong, but it was obvious that something was obstructing my sleep. I had another done this past Monday and I don't have the results from that yet. The neurologist I saw 3 years ago that set up my sleep study suggested that I might have anxiety/depression and prescribed more exercise and an ssri. I followed her advice, but stopped the ssri when it became apparent that it wasn't helping. I have continued exercising since then. I have tried to ignore the symptoms and I haven't had any other testing done. It seems like my dad and my brothers have similar symptoms, but to a lesser degree. They haven't had any testing done and my older relatives haven't either so I don't have anything for family history. However, my dad snores and most of my family has high blood pressure. I have normal blood pressure and do not snore. I am also extremely sensitive to stimulants. They make me feel dizzy and sick. I avoid them completely. I also avoid sugary foods and drinks as they seem to make me nauseous.
The first test was inconclusive as I barely slept the whole night. The wires made it difficult for me to sleep. I don't believe that it showed apnea though.
I should get the results of my second sleep study soon. No, I haven't.
