I still don’t know what’s going on with my back. I have to go for an MRI of my back on the 31st. Hopefully, we’ll find out then.
An update on my “sleep apnea”: I finally got to talk to my sleep disorder doctor. He told me I probably do not have sleep apnea, and if I do, then it is extremely mild and does not require a CPAP. (THANK YOU!) He told me that I had NO apneas, but my breathing slowed significantly during deep sleep. (I still think it’s odd that a person can have deep sleep and be completely aware of their surroundings…) My Oxygen had dropped a little lower than I had been told (85% instead of 89%).
Basically, everything the nurse told me was a flat out lie.
