I had an appointment set up with a sleep doctor and they were going to have her see me by telehealth. I didn't want that. I too was wondering if it had anything to do with my seizures. Would that be for seizures I get any time of day or just those at night. I also have nasal congestion and wondered if that would affect things. I have been told I snore and someone mentioned I stopped breathing temporarily but not sure if that happens on a regular basis. Besides, wouldn't I feel tired during the day with sleep apnea?

I would hang in there on the sleep study, keep calling. I would do the telehealth. Sometimes to get what I want I have to do what they want.

I don't believe the article specifies so I would take that to mean seizures day and night. My EEG shows seizure activity at all times, sleeping or awake. I noticed the decline in seizure activity after starting CPAP when I was awake. I can only assume the same was happening while sleeping.

I will be interested to hear what you find out. Good luck.
