beatlemike Posted June 4, 2012 Share Posted June 4, 2012 Hi folks, the other day I mentioned in a post( I dont remember what forum or day) that the doctor wanted me to do a night test at home to check my 02 level while I sleep. He seems to think I may need to be on oxygen while I sleep. I dont know if its false pride or fear but the thought of being on oxygen really bothers me. My thinking is if they put me on it at bedtime that it is only a short time away from being on it 24/7. I have to admit that many times I awake at nightime full of anxiety and worry,I dont know if thats from not getting enough air or what. I know this morning when I woke up I was very short of breath for the first hour or so but it got better as the day goes by. I have alot of trouble with plugged sinuses,couldnt that cause the shortness of breath? Are any of you on oxygen yet and how do you deal with it? I quess I just hate the thought of being hooked up to a machine. I need to make up my mind if Im gonna have the test done. Any thoughts on this subject would be appreciated.
